Frightening & Intense Scenes

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A girl places her hands on the bulbs of a science fair project and pretends that the electricity is giving her an orgasm. She moans and squeals while wiggling her body and the crowd of students begin to cheer for the "orgasmatron" machine. The boy who created the project yells into the microphone that that isn't what his machine actually does, and the girl stops.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A boy creates a science fair project that is designed to tell the person strapped into it whether or not they should commit suicide. (He refers to it as "to be or not to be") When he reveals this to the audience and uses a girl to be the test subject, the machine tells her she is "not to be" (implying that she should kill herself). The students in the audience begin to laugh and chant Do it! Do it! The girl begins to cry and run off. The boy who created the machine worries that she has killed herself when he can't find her. It turns out she is okay, but reveals to him that she has attempted before in the past, but is better now. This scene is very emotional and may catch you off guard, as it comes out of nowhere directly following some of the funniest scenes of the film.
