This dialogue-heavy film, which is a near-continuous series of arguments, deals with topics that will be difficult for pre-teens to follow. Many moderate profanities are included, along with a couple of slang terms for sex—one in ASL (American Sign Language). Physical altercation is limited to a short moment when adult brothers fight with each other, resulting in a couple of small head wounds. Homosexual and heterosexual relationships are explored, but there are no explicit sexual discussions or portrayals. Some characters drink beer in a bar; one becomes intoxicated and makes a reference to “wanting some pot.”
