THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a US comedy drama about three teenage boys who build a house in the woods where they intend to live free from adult supervision.

Sex

The film contains a number of uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'c**ksucker'), some of which are aggressively directed. There is also some moderate and mild bad language, for example 'prick', 'bitch', 'shit', 'dick', 'bullshit', 'bastard', 'goddamn', 'hell', 'God', as well as some unendorsed discriminatory language.

The film contains some moderate sex references and scenes in which animals are apparently killed. In one scene, a boy appears to kill a rabbit and subsequently skins it before cooking and eating it. The animal is not seen being killed and there is no indication of real animal cruelty. There is also a scene in which a snake is beheaded after a teenager stamps on its neck, but this is clearly not a real animal.

There are some scenes in which teenagers drink beer and a teenage boy smokes a pipe and blows smoke rings. These scenes do not glamorise or promote the activities.

The film also contains a scene in which a teenage boy is bitten on the leg by a snake. The boy subsequently wets himself and the wound is shown before he is taken to hospital. The boy quickly recovers.

There are some brief scenes of violence when the teenage boys fight, but there is no injury detail. There are also some scenes in which the boys wield swords that are not used to cause injury.

In one scene, the boys are seen urinating. However the scene is shot from behind and there is no genital nudity.
