violence
Scenes of bullying occur throughout, in person and via social media. People are ridiculed for their appearance, body shape, personalities and sexuality. This sometimes erupts in comically staged physical violence, and scenes in which people are hurt and offended by the behaviour of others. However, the film ultimately promotes honesty and acceptance.
language
There are implied and partial uses of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') in comic contexts. Moderate bad language ('bitch', 'slut', 'whore', 'dick') and milder terms also feature, including 'shit', 'ass', 'asshole', 'crap', 'pissed', 'screwed', 'hell' and 'frickin''. There is also use of middle finger gestures.
sex
Sex references occur throughout, including to promiscuity and having sex, condoms, and a passing reference to choking. There is use of terms such as 'slutty', 'sexy', 'horny' and 'humping'. Choreography and lyrics occasionally focus on female characters' breasts. People kiss passionately in some scenes.
discrimination
Students at the school display bullying behaviour towards others, including homophobic language and behaviour. However, such actions are clearly condemned.
drugs
Comic references are made to drugs, including heroin, but without instructional or promotional detail. A teacher is aggrieved when she is falsely accused of dealing drugs by a student.
rude humour
There is infrequent rude humour, including poop jokes and a teenager having a "heavy flow" during her period.
theme
Teenage characters are self-conscious about their weight. A girl is tricked into eating weight-gain bars under the belief they will help her lose weight.
flashing/flickering lights
This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
alcohol and smoking
There are scenes in which underage teens drink unnamed beverages at parties, although the ensuing drunken behaviour has disastrous results for the protagonist.
