- What is going on? Two girls realize they missed out on living their high school years partying, so they do it all in one night.
- What’s really going on? The teens in the film live completely hedonistic lifestyles and the adults not only are portrayed as ridiculous but also are the worst examples of discerning, self-controlled, and dignified human beings. The film normalizes the extreme sexual perversions portrayed.
- What difference does it make? It degrades the human person as being like animals seeking to fulfill all impulses and desires without any sense of reason and reflection. Sexuality is disconnected from a true self-giving love in a committed, life-long relationship.
- What difference can I make? I can choose to live a life of dignity and integrity, not following the crowd for the sake of popularity, but living a happy life by finding joy in being the best of who God created me to be.
