THE WILD LIFE is a US comedy following the exploits of a group of teenagers living in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

Nudity

There is female breast nudity during a scene in which a young man watches his girlfriend getting undressed. There is breast and buttock nudity during an extended sequence in a strip club, and briefly as a group of teenagers play strip poker at a party.

Sex

There are frequent verbal sex references, for example to oral sex and masturbation. In one scene we see a man pulling down his girlfriend's underwear, but no sex actually takes place on screen.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k'), alongside milder terms such as 'pussy', 'dickhead', 'shit', 'screw', 'bullshit' and 'ass'. There is also an unendorsed use of the discriminatory term 'fag' and a use of the rude middle finger gesture.

Drugs

Teenage characters casually smoke marijuana joints, but the work as a whole does not promote or encourage drug misuse. In one scene a man is seen fixing a tourniquet around his arm in preparation to use heroin.

There is a scene of moderate violence after a brawl breaks out in a strip club.
