The fight moves to a fast food drive-in where a large sign crushes a car; the male teens square off with one holding a civil war era gun that is eventually shot at the other boy hitting a piece of chicken he’s holding and (unrealistically) not injuring the boy. A child straps firecrackers to his abdomen and legs in a terrorist-like fashion. An adult male invites a male child to ride with him, making remarks about luring a child into his car; later a friend remarks about him having a “good time” with the young boy, implying a sexual encounter has happened between him. In another scene a young boy gets into the car of another man. A young boy assists an adult male in preparing an exploding device containing dog excrement and fireworks; the device is placed on the doorstep of another male who, after discovering it burning on his doorstep, sits on top of it and is blown backward. Later he sees the young boy and brings him into his house, then locks him in a room. The boy’s sister eventually enters the house alone and confronts the adult male in an attempt to rescue her brother. Teens drive recklessly. Kids put toilet paper on a police car—the police laugh and comment that it must be Halloween.
Sexual Content: A teen boy bargains with a girl to be able to squeeze her breast, which she eventually allows; later we see both of them awakening on a sofa the next morning with sexual activities between them strongly implied. A large animated chicken mounted on a signpost falls on a car and continues to move on top of the vehicle in a sexual fashion. A teen girl in the shower discovers her naked brother using the toilet in the same bathroom. A mother of two children is living with a much younger man in their home—we see the two of them briefly fondling each other in the kitchen in front of the children. A man is reading the novel 50 Shades of Grey and a woman asks if it’s any good. A man, upon seeing another man with a young boy in his car, makes a sexual remark about them having a “good time”. Two teen girls discuss needing “sexy” Halloween costumes so they will be admitted to a party. A boy cuts his sister’s clothing, including leaving holes where her breasts (referred to as “boobs”) would be. A teen girl repeatedly talks about having put hair removing cream on a private part of her body and it now being in severe pain.
Language: A single scatological expletive is used, along with crude terms for female anatomy, assorted profanities and terms of Christian deity.
