While I appreciate the anger felt by Casey towards the sacrilegious Christmas display, the use of profanity and references to drinking to excess and sexual intercourse seem to go a bit far. I'm technically not offended by the writers' mockery of nuns, and I enjoy the generosity the boys show towards their old neighbor, but the coming of age genre just doesn't resonate with me as much as you might think. Maybe it's because I was God and without sin and all that as a child. Don't get me wrong: I love the kids. It's just as a viewer, I'm totally thinking these middle school and high school movies just do it for any of the pre-20th century generations. Mainly because we were WORKING or married at that age, not trying to get away with stealing donuts from nuns in middle school or driving around in SUVs to impress girls.
