Wesley's journey of self discovery is filled with valuable life lessons about honoring your parents but still following your own dreams, loving your brother enough to tell him when he's acting in a self-destructive manner, seeing past a person's income or job to who they are and how they make you feel, and being generous not just with money but also with time and kindness.
Brothers come to blows, and one ends up on the floor whimpering. A man in a homeless shelter tries to attack Lindsey and her daughter. A mother slaps her son. Walter is perpetually bitter, angry, and hostile. He has to be held back from lashing out at several characters.
A few mentions of "making love," a couple of kisses, and one non-explicit love scene. A character is shown in the shower (head and shoulders), and another is briefly seen in her bra and panties.
Several uses of words including "ass," "s--t," "damn," "hell," "bitch," "crap," "oh my God," and "goddamn," plus insults such as "ho," "white trash," and more.
Prominent product placements of Harley-Davidson, Apple (Macbook, iPod), and Porsche.
Adults drink in social situations, and in two scenes, characters are shown getting or already drunk. A mother questions why her adult son is drinking so early in the day, and he snipes back that she should be glad it's not a mountain of cocaine.
