What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is very violent, though not as graphic as many PG-13s. Characters are killed, including one who is impaled. There is brief strong language. There are some sexual references, though it is very clear that the "bad girl" is, as far as sex goes, a "good girl."
