discrimination

A schoolboy character bullies classmates, using discriminatory and sexual slurs. Mostly this is homophobic in nature, but he also calls a girl a 'wacky spacky'. Those on the receiving end of such abuse respond with witty retorts, humiliating the bully, but some of his insults stick and, when the titular character is called 'disgusting', it triggers unhappy memories of parental rejection. In the course of deflecting abuse, several discriminatory terms are used, including 'queer', 'faggot', 'fairy' and 'batty bum boy'. The film carries a clear anti-discrimination message.

language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'wanker', 'knobhead', 'dick', 'shit', 'bloody, 'bugger', 'bollocks', 'arsehole', 'sod', 'balls' and 'tits'.

sex

There are some crude sex references and innuendo, such as a schoolboy claiming to be a 'vagetarian'. Song lyrics refer to sex dungeons and spanking.

flashing/flicking lights

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.


In one sequence, a teenager steals alcohol, gets drunk, and causes a scene at a football match. A man shoves him to the ground and his face is bloodied. There is also a comic reference to sexual violence when a boy complains that his eyebrows make him look like his face has "been raped by epileptic caterpillars".
