Such a son. Your mother needs you like a moose needs a hat rack.
"It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right."
"Well, then, what's orange? If this is red, I wanna know, what's orange?"
"California, here we come." "It's Florida, Ty. Florida." "California, Florida, whatever. Either way, your pale a** is getting a tan."
Violence: There is a fair bit of violence. There's blood splatter, gunfire, and a stabbing (using a fork). The typical violence you see in films isn't really used here, but this film is graphic in other ways that far outweigh conventional movie violence.
Coarse Language: The f-word is used over 30 times. Milder cusses are used also. Profanity is one of the last things you need to worry about in this film compared to the harrowing extent of the content itself.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: There are many frightening and intense scenes in this film that are somewhat undefinable. IF YOU ARE SQUIRMISH AND DON'T THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT, DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM. It is excellent, but if you are easy to shock, then this film may prove a traumatic experience for you. This film is certainly not for children and most adults (male or female) would be disturbed.
Sexual Content: Sex and nudity of all kinds. It is extremely sexually graphic.
Other: Heroin and amphetamine/speed addiction is shown. Drugs play a major role in this film, acting as the agent of motivation and the central focus of this film. There's smoking and drinking alcohol, too, which barely matter in comparison to the frequency of drug depiction.
