FIST FIGHT is a US comedy in which a tough high school teacher challenges a mild-mannered colleague to a fight.

Language

Frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), as well as milder terms including 'bitch', 'shit' and 'asshole'.

Sex

Strong visual sex references include a running joke about a student who is often in the toilets masturbating with his hand down his trousers, while watching porn on a laptop, and a scene in which a teacher catches students watching a porn DVD, with brief sight of two topless women kissing. Strong crude verbal sex references include a female teacher talking about wanting to have sex with one of the older students ("I want that teenage dick!").

Drugs

There is brief drug misuse as a teacher smokes a joint in order to try to fool the cops into thinking it was his rival smoking it, and a scene in which a teacher claims she has taken 'meth' and says, "It's the best I've ever felt!".

Further issues include a prolonged scene of comic violence between the two main characters.
