Screen It! is not attempting to rate the movie as good or bad but to give parents the tools to decide whether it's appropriate for their kids.

This movie has been screened for objectional content in 15 areas. Click for a detailed look.

The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated comedy. Profanity is extreme due to more than 60 "f" words, along with many other profanities and colorful phrases. Sexual content also gives its category an extreme rating. A great of sexually related comments are made, several varied sexual encounters occur, and some male rear nudity is seen. Brief drug use (marijuana) occurs in one scene, while for the first half of the film one of the major characters is drunk or recovering from/reacting to being in that state. The three teens see young women as nothing but sexual objects and/or conquests, while in adulthood they have attitudes that many women may also find offensive. Other bad attitudes are also present. Beyond some brief violence (a person getting beaten up, a robbery at gunpoint, etc...), however, the film's remaining categories have little or nothing in the way of major objectionable content. Nonetheless, should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness for yourself or anyone in your home, you may want to take a closer look at the listed material.

Comedy: Three twenty-something friends reminisce about growing up in Inglewood, California as one faces pre-nuptial jitters.
Aimed at a black audience, the film might draw teens who are fans of someone in the cast or simply want to see a picture featuring a black cast, but it's unlikely many kids will ultimately want to see it.
For strong language and some strong sexuality.
  • OMAR EPPS plays the film's adult narrator who tries to convince his friend to get married.
  • TAYE DIGGS plays that friend who's so scared to get married that he went out, got drunk and ended up at his former girlfriend's home (nothing happens between them despite his inebriated advances toward her).
  • RICHARD T. JONES plays their other friend who cusses a lot and has little tolerance for Roland's shenanigans. He also believes that wives should follow their husband's careers and not vice-versa.
  • SEAN NELSON plays a young and somewhat naive teen who's recently moved to Inglewood from North Carolina. Easily influenced by his two new friends, he enters several girl-related wagers with them, including losing one's virginity that he finally does with Alicia.
  • TRENT CAMERON and DUANE FINLEY play those two friends who somewhat corrupt/help change Mike from that young and gullible student into more of a sex-crazed older teen.
  • MALINDA WILLIAMS plays the young and confident teen with whom Mike is smitten. She later becomes a good non-romantic friend of his, but they eventually end up having sex.
  • De'AUNDRE BONDS plays Alicia's gangster brother in the past who smokes pot, beats up Mike, and robs a convenience store at gunpoint.

  • We see some cases of beer and wine being delivered to a house for a wedding.
  • In the present, the guys learn that Roland is "jacked up" (drunk). They then go over to his old girlfriend's house and find him that way (and later see him vomit because of that).
  • We see some beer and ads for beer in a convenience store.
  • Some gang members drink from brown paper bags in a parking lot.
  • Stacy and his friend share a joint, ask the three guys if they want any, and then make fun of them for not accepting it. Stacy then goes on to say that everyone smokes weed and that he wants to record a rap album about smoking weed.
  • People have wine/champagne at a wedding reception.
  • Mike has a little bit of a bloody lip after he's been in a fight.
  • We see Roland vomit quite a bit (due to being drunk), all over his hand, and in Slim's truck and against its window. Later, others adversely react to the smell of them and their clothes.
  • On his wedding day, Roland gets cold feet, and has gotten drunk and gone to his old girlfriend's house where he tries to put the moves on her.
  • The guys -- back in their school days -- constantly ogle girls and comment on their body parts. Later, and in high school, they have a betting contest to see who will first "get some" (have sex). They then try to force/convince girls to have sex with them using a variety of reasons/excuses.
  • Roland and Slim agree to pay Mike a dollar if he'll grab Alicia's butt and then run away.
  • Stacy beats up Mike and then he and a friend hold up a convenience store at gunpoint.
  • When Roland says that he'll follow his fiancé and her job, Slim says that's wrong and that he needs to wear panties. Mike then agrees that the woman should follow the man.
  • Although it's not really played much in this sense, some may find a scene where a masked man robs a convenience store at gunpoint as somewhat suspenseful (although it turns out to be Stacy).
  • Done in a somewhat comical fashion, Mike goes through Stacy's bedroom looking for a condom just as the thug comes home with a girl and heads toward the bedroom.
  • Handgun: Used by Stacy to hold up a convenience store.
  • Handguns: Worn by cops who have their hands on them when they pull over Stacy and others.

  • Slim makes the gesture for male masturbation in response to a comment that Roland makes.
  • Roland and Slim agree to pay Mike a dollar if he'll grab Alicia's butt and then run away.
  • None.
  • A tiny bit of suspenseful music occurs.
  • While we didn't hear anything, some songs are present with lyrics that couldn't be understood, so it's possible some material may be present.
  • At least 61 "f" words (12 used with "mother," 3 used sexually), 63 "s" words, 4 slang terms for female genitals ("p*ssy" -- written once -- and "cootchie"), 3 slang terms for male genitals ("d*ck"), 1 slang term for breasts ("t*tties"), 30 damns, 28 hells, 26 asses and 3 uses of "G- damn," 2 each of "My God" and "Oh my God" and 1 use of "God" as exclamations.
  • When Mike first talks about the "wood," he says it's not what we think it is (a slang term for penis), but that it's about his neighborhood, Inglewood.
  • There's a poster on a wall of a woman who shows some cleavage.
  • Back in the guys' middle school years, they (and the camera) focus on girls' butts.
  • Mike mentions in voice over that it was early in the morning at school, but that his hormones were wide awake. When called to introduce himself to his class, he looks down to his crotch and says "Please go down." He then walks to the front of the class with a book covering his never- seen erection.
  • One of the guys says that he'd like to "hit a home run" with Alicia.
  • Mike mentions that a certain girl was his first love and "his first..." and then thrusts his arm out to suggest sex.
  • Rather drunk, Roland tries to put the moves on his old girlfriend and slaps her on the butt. He then recites a line from a song, "Making love forever." Slim then asks Tanya, "You didn't f*ck, did you?" and she says that they didn't. Roland then tells Mike and Slim that they have to leave because "I'm trying to get into that...did you see that? Her booty is rotund. I'm going to make her booty jiggle." Slim then realizes that Roland's afraid to get married because of "all the p*ssy" he's going to be giving up.
  • In the past, the guys look at Alicia and comment on her "booty" saying "I bet it's soft. I'd love to grab that ass."
  • Commenting on having just robbed a convenience store, Stacy's friend says that he just wanted to get some rubbers.
  • At a school dance, a teacher separates a couple from suggestively dancing where the guy was rubbing his crotch against the girl's butt as she partially bent over.
  • Mike mentions that the power of horniness makes one forget everything else. Then, when he's slow dancing with Alicia, he comments that all he was thinking was "don't get hard." He then comments that he was in "full salute" and was going to blow, and thus dances with her at a distance. When she pulls him back in as the song ends, she evidently feels his erection as she quickly backs off with a disapproving look on her face.
  • Forced to wash themselves outdoors, we see the three friends (as adults) spraying themselves/each other with a garden hose. As such, we see Slim and Roland's bare butts and then see Roland standing there completely nude with only his hands covering his crotch and Roland comments on "shrinkage" (related to his genitals in the cold water).
  • In high school and talking via voice over, Mike says that he's a breast man when looking at the high school girls passing by. He then mentions that school was all about "sex, the wild thing, the nasty..."
  • The guys (in high school) talk about girls not wanting "to give it up" (have sex). They then agree to have a betting contest to see who will have sex first (one says, "Put your money where your d*ck is"). We then see their repeated attempts at having sex with the ladies, as well as the jar of money for collecting their bets that's labeled "P*ssy Pot."
  • As such, we see Mike and his girlfriend sitting on a bed with his hand up her skirt and her reacting in a pleasured way (and saying "Right there..."). He then says that they should do something else, that they should make love.
  • Another girl tells Roland, "You want to put that inside me? It's so nasty."
  • One of them tells a girl that he'll get "blue balls" and that his "d*ck will swell up and explode" if he doesn't have sex.
  • We see Mike pouring ice water down onto his crotch (that we don't see) to calm himself down.
  • Mike and Alicia talk about sex and he mentions that he and his girlfriend have done everything but "it." She then says that "doing it ain't easy" and jokingly asks why he isn't "getting none." She then somewhat suggestively adds that maybe he needs to find someone who wants to do it as badly as he does.
  • Mike and Alicia start making out in her bedroom while dancing. He then leads her over to her bed and she unzips his pants and asks if he has any protection. He then pulls out a condom (that we see) and with his back turned to her, puts it on (we can tell what he's doing, but can't directly see it). He then walks back over to the bed (where she's now under the covers) and she looks at his penis (that we don't see) and asks if that's the way the condom's supposed to look. He says yes, and then gets into bed and crawls on top of her under the covers. She tells him to go slow and warns that if he hurts her, she'll slug him. As he tries for penetration, she says "What are you doing? Not there" (implying he was in the wrong place). He apologizes and then succeeds. She finds it painful, but then they discover that the condom broke. He says that they don't really need one, but she insists that they do and sends him off to her brother's room to borrow one of his.
  • There, Mike looks around, finally finds one, but then hears Stacy and a girl coming into the room, making out. Mike then hides under the bed and we then see this girl undoing Stacy's pants as he lies back on his bed. The girl then asks Stacy what happened to his rubbers, that he had four, but only has three now (and asking him who he's "f*cking"). As such, they don't do anything else and leave and Mike then returns to Alicia's bedroom.
  • We then see Mike on top of Alicia again under the covers. We then hear some heavy breathing and see some movement (under the covers). In just a few seconds he's done, rolls off her and she asks, "So that's it?" and he says yes.
  • The bride and some of her bridesmaids show cleavage in their dresses.
  • None.
  • None.
  • The guys' attitudes about marriage, sex, and women overall.
  • Teenage sex.
  • Alicia hits Mike for trying to run up and grab her butt.
  • Upset that Mike tried to make a move on his sister, Stacy pushes Mike backwards and then does the same to Slim when he tries to intervene. Mike then slugs Stacy, who then proceeds to repeatedly punch Mike in the face and gut until Alicia slaps him to make him stop.
  • Stacy holds a gun on a convenience store clerk as he and a friend rob the place.
  • Slim hits Roland with his tux jacket for vomiting in his truck. The two then briefly tussle, but nothing else happens.
