In Singapore, the film was originally passed with an R21 classification due to the film's sexual content and nudity. However the distributors were unsatisfied with this rating and opted to re-edit the film in order to obtain the more commercially lucrative M18 rating; the aforementioned cut removes a brief, close-up depiction of a hand squeezing a man's scrotum, as part of a couple's act of foreplay.

Honestly, I went to see this movie to kill some time. To see a bit of a mindless, sophomoric, escapism comedy. And although it did have these things and some jokes didn't land as well as others, it was so much more than that. There some pretty funny moments, several unexpected funny moments that caught me by surprise, and a whole lot of heart that actually built character and moved the plot forward more than I expected. It was still a comedy at heart, but there were some sincere, touching moments that helped the film instead of hindering it. It masterfully touches on parenting today and what it means to be an independent person as you mature as a young adult in both in your sexuality and in other ways. I'd say more of a 7.5/10 but as far as I know can only rate in full numbers
