Overall: D
We can only hope our teens will Get Over It. All this teen romp has to offer is sex, violence, language, and booze within a high school setting, topped off with many threadbare costumes and a story that resorts to cheesy flashbacks against an agonizingly melodramatic musical score.

Violence: C-
Man falls face-first into horse excrement and is urinated on by horse. Naked teen girl hit by car and thrown over top of vehicle. Teen girl accidentally starts a boy’s overalls on fire during shop class. Series of mishaps in restaurant sets building on fire. High school student uses a nunchaku (weapon of two sticks connected with a chain) intending to harm someone, but accidentally breaks leg of another person. Teen girl shoots teen boy in arm with crossbow, believing it was only a theater prop. Teen boy makes threats to kill another teen at party. Two occasions when teen boys punch other people. Three high school students contrive to explode stage prop with intent to injure another student.

Sexual Content: D
Teen boy comments on having girl see him naked and playing doctor when he was seven, while we see teen couple kissing and fondling in the present day. Clothed married couple demonstrates sexual position. Teen couple dances seductively. Dog making sexual movements is repeatedly seen in movie. Girl’s bikini top falls off (she covers her breasts). Many girls in tight revealing clothing, including bikinis. Teen boy makes sexual movements. Teen male seen naked from rear. Teen boys go to sex club / bar featuring many barely-covered waitresses and dancers; teen boy is brought on stage, attached to a harness, and a dominatrix woman appears; police raid bar; boys parent’s applaud his deviant sexual behavior and use a crude phrase to suggest he may want to go home and masturbate. Parents offer condoms to their son. Teen couple attempts to have sex but are interrupted. Teen girl sensuously sucks teen boy’s finger. Implied lesbian encounter.

Language: D
At least: 1 partially said sexual expletive, 21 moderate profanities, 13 mild profanities, 12 terms of Deity used as profanities or expletives. Many of these spoken by teen characters.
