* HumansAreBastards: Teens don't care about the ethics or consequences of their behaviour, while adults are just not aware of what these kids are doing half of the time. In some cases, like Telly's mother, they don't even care.

* TimeMarchesOn: New York City as depicted in this film has changed a lot since this movie was made. Major of UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Rudolph Giuliani, who was in charge from 1994 to 2001, oversaw a large clean-up of the city from crime, making the once crime-infested metropolis a lot safer in comparison.

* FromBadToWorse: Every time when you think the teens can't behave any worse than the previous scene it gets more shocking. The ending scene is a good example [[spoiler: Jenny fails to find Telly in time to tell him he gave her HIV and when she finally discovers him he is already having sex with another unsuspecting virgin, whose first time is extremely painful too, but he doesn't care about her feelings, even when she cries. Jenny doesn't do anything to stop them, as she swallowed some drugs some hours ago and is to dizzy and tired to react. Later on, as she sleeps off her drug effects she gets raped in her coma by Casper too, giving him HIV too.]]

Leo Fitzpatrick and Justin Pierce star as Telly and Casper, two New York teenagers of around 17. [[KidAnova Telly's mission in life is to deflower virgins, referring to himself as the "virgin surgeon"]]. His latest sexual conquest has been Jennie (Creator/ChloeSevigny). The film charts a day in Telly and Casper's lives, as they go about their daily activities of [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy using black slang]], smoking pot, shoplifting, beating up a passerby who crosses them in the park, and attending midnight raves, whilst Jennie and her friend Ruby (Creator/RosarioDawson) attempt to track them down and give Telly some information of life-and-death importance.

* AuthorAppeal: The film has been criticized for showing real teenagers, some clearly underage, taking drugs on camera and being shown in semi nude and sexual positions. Seeing that Larry Clark also photograps such real life youngsters a lot and all of his other films have similar scenes it's clearly something that interests him.

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedPositive: Played for tragedy. A character who has only had sex once has an HIV test to encourage her promiscuous friend to do the same. Guess which one's positive.

Added DiffLines:

* TruthInTelevision: That said, longitudinal studies of adolescent and early adult sexual behavior in economically depressed urban areas frequently gather data which can be ''horrifying''.

* BrokenAesop: While some have praised the movie as a perfect ScareEmStraight film, others feel the film exploits actual underage teenagers by having them indulge in alcohol, tobacco and drugs on camera and being depicted in sexual imagery without any considerance for their own health and/or any regrets they might feel about this when they've reached an older age. The fact that two actors involved in the film died an early age a few years later as a result of suicide (Justin Pierce, who plays Casper) and a drug overdose (Harold Hunter, who plays skater Harold) only adds to these accusations. The merits of this picture, if any, remain polarizing today.
** Interestingly enough, for a movie so intent on being realistic, racial intolerance is not a topic in this movie. Yet Telly and his friends do discriminate a homosexual couple.
