Along with his new friends, a teenager who was arrested by the US Secret Service and banned from using a computer for writing a computer virus discovers a plot by a nefarious hacker, but they must use their computer skills to find the evidence while being pursued by the Secret Service and the evil computer genius behind the virus.
Rated PG-13 for some sexuality and brief strong language.
Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
Mild teenage-level sexuality references throughout film.
Mild scenes of teenage characters kissing passionately.
Very quick and dark view of bare breasts during a dream scene. Nipples are visible for a moment.
Very brief animation on a computer screen of skeletons doing a lambada-type dance.
Two very brief shots of women in slightly transparent t-shirts.
Non-explicit scenes of teen boys showering. One boy is chased out of the shower and his bare butt is briefly visible.
Brief shot of a repairman with visible buttcrack. Aside from this, there is no male nudity.
An explicit personals ad is read aloud, and some phone responses garnered by the ad are heard. Played for laughs.
Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
Boy gets beaten by his angry mother.
A stereo is smashed with a baseball bat. No further instances of violence toward home appliances.
Someone fires a flare gun at a security guard, but only to frighten them away.
Infrequent use of the word "shit" and derivatives.
One instance of "fucked" in non-sexual context.
Milder swearing throughout.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason

One chain-smoking teenager serves as a running joke throughout the film. At one point he is shown hiding his smoking from his mother, at another he has a cigarette in each hand while telling how he hacked into a banks system.
Teen smoking and drinking coffee at an addicts meeting.
Copious amounts of caffeine.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Nothing apart from the dramatic effect of one teenage character having his mother's safety verbally threatened by the villain.
