A teenage boy and girl kiss passionately on several occasions. Role play occurs before John Candy removes the top of a woman.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
One of the characters, whom Chet and Roman meet in a bar, says that he has been struck in the head by lightning 66 times. Later, the same character gets struck in the head one more time. A heated argument occurs in which two men square up. But no punches are thrown. A bear gets shot in its backside.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
A couple of bar scenes at the main camp lodge. Only adults are seen with alcohol, no teens drinking during their "hanging out" times. The main character, Chet, selects club soda during a party, because he states he is the Designated Driver.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
The bear scene at the end of the movie is fairly intense and may be frightening for younger viewers.
