Overall: B-
A powerful message about setting a goal and finding the strength from within yourself to achieve and overcome negative peer pressure. Depicts a positive relationship between young and old. Unfortunately, it is loaded with profanities and some sexual references.

Violence: B-
A young man breaks into an apartment in reaction to a dare from friends. One scare scene.

Sexual Content: B-
A healthy relationship between a male & female teen is depicted without sexual engagement. However sexual terms are used, in one instance to describe a sexual act. Sexual sounds.

Language: D
At least: 3 extreme profanities, 20 moderate profanities, 17 mild profanities, and 9 terms of Deity used as expletives or profanities. Inner city setting probably justifies some profanity.

Alcohol / Drug Use: B
Consequences of driving drunk are appropriately discussed. However, a teacher explains that Edgar Allen Poe was “strung out on coke,” in a way that could lead students to believe the use of this drug could enhance creativity and the negative consequences are not discussed.
