MPAA Rated PG-13 for sexual material and language

Sex & Nudity

  • Summer tells Tom that people used to call her anal girl, it's then clarified that this was because she was a clean freak.
  • Tom and Summer are in a sexual relationship, but it's never overtly shown. In one instance, you see her bare back, as Tom walks toward her (a subtle homage to 'The Graduate'), and in two or three instances, they're seen kissing on a bed.
  • Tom and Summer rent a pornographic movie called "Sweet and Shower", and as they watch it (nothing shown or clearly heard), she says "That's doable." You then see a shower curtain, as the water runs, and frantic movement is seen (sex is implied).
  • Summer tells Tom about one of her ex-boyfriends, whom she called "The Puma". A picture is shown of the man, and the camera zooms in on the man's bulge shown through his pants.
  • Sexual references are made throughout: Talk of lesbians and gays; a brief scene where Tom and Summer go to an art gallery with art that looks like sexual organs and pieces of excrement; one picture includes two dogs having sex. They go to a movie that is called "Part Vampires, part Giants: Vagiants"; They go to a park (with kids around) and yell out "penis" ( a several times, very loud) louder than the other as a bravery challenge. Brief reference to a hand job and a "humjob".

Violence & Gore

  • After a man rather vulgarly approaches Summer, Tom punches him out, then off-camera, Tom gets knocked out, resulting in a black eye.


  • There is fairly moderate amount of profanity: one "f-word", several uses of sh--, damn, hell, bastard, bitch, and many crude sexual references. The name of Jesus is misused three times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Characters drink beer, wine and shots of hard liquor.
  • At least two scenes with characters partially inebriated. In one instance a supporting character is heavily drunk.
