From the critics
NoticesAdd a Notice
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Uh.... Gore is pretty scary. And all them fights... well, yeah.
Sexual Content: Some 'behind' nudity, lots of covered sex, like c'mon give us the nudity in an NC-17 version. Otherwise suitable for an R rating.
Violence: At least 100 people die. Lots of good gore.
Sexual Content: Teen masturbation, teen sex; while nothing is overtly shown, the references, frames, and what you do see leaves no doubt about what is going on or is about to happen.
Violence: Adults, teens, and an 11-year-old are all shown being in violent situations, both on the receiving end and on the giving end. Some were violently beat up, some were shot, some were knifed, and some were even set on fire.

Damon Macready: So... Have you thought a little more about what you might want for your birthday?
Mindy Macready: Can I get a puppy?
Damon Macready: [surprised] You wanna get a dog?
Mindy Macready: Yeah, a cuddly fluffy one, and a Bratz movie-star make over Sasha!
[Damon is stunned]
Mindy Macready: [laughs] I'm just fucking with you Daddy! Look, I'd love a Benchmade model 42 butterfly knife.

Dave Lizewski: Jesus, guys, doesn't it bug you? Like thousand of people wanna be Paris Hilton and nobody wants to be Spiderman.
Marty: Yeah, what's with that? She has like no tits at all.
Todd: Maybe it's the porn tape, he doesn't have a porn tape.
Marty: You guys never saw "One Night In Spiderman"?
Dave Lizewski: With no power, comes no responsibility. Except, *that* wasn't true.
Dave Lizewski: I always wondered why no-one did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows... you think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself, at some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.
