Determined to do anything he must to turn the school around, he expels suspected drug dealers, padlocks doors and demands effort and results from students, staff and parents.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity 4/10 When showing the disorder in the school, the camera shoots to a girl being bullied by other girls. Her shirt is torn off and she covers her breasts from the camera (no nudity shown, but full bare back). A boy is told to keep control of his hormones as he tries to woo a girl. One girl wear scantly, tight fitting clothes and another girl is pregnant, like her mother was when the mother was the girl's age. A student motions towards his crotch as an insult to a woman.
violence 4/10 Some students get in a fight between each other. A teacher is beaten by a student and his head is slammed into the hard floor multiple times (blood is shown). He is then seen being carted out of the school on a stretcher by paramedics. A young drug dealer beats up another student, giving him a black eye and a bloodied nose. He pulls a knife on the principal who punches him. Guns are shown.
profanity 2/10 Multiple uses of the s-word. Clark (Freeman) says "go to hell." Some of the lyrics in the soundtrack contain bad words/phrases. Clark tells a kid that if he wants to kill himself "don't fuck around with it"
alcohol 3/10 Students are known for taking drugs and one student is shown accepting drugs from a drug dealer. Many students smoke at the beginning of the movie before the new principal (Freeman) rules it forbidden. Clark (Freeman) tells a young student who has been smoking crack that the student will kill himself if he keeps taking drugs.
frightening PG-13 is the re-rating. This movie came out in 1989, a year before PG-13 was a rating, so when it first came out it was PG. Re-rating: PG-13 for a sexual scene, language and violence Suitable for 13+
