HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES is a science fiction comedy, set in London during the 1970s, in which a teenage punk falls in love with a visitor from another planet.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'prick', 'bitch', 'wanker', 'twat', 'slag', 'piss', 'arsehole', 'bloody' and 'shit'. In one scene a young man looks at a record by a band called 'Dyslexic Cnuts'.

Sex

Verbal sex references are strong and occasionally crude, for example a teenage boy's observation that a party is "teeming with proper gash" or a comment about a young woman's "arse cherry". There are two comic scenes in which aliens appear to anally probe human characters, but this is depicted without strong visual detail. Though the procedure itself has a purpose beyond sexual gratification, the humans' reactions indicate that it is pleasurable for them.

There are occasional drug references and a scene in which a woman is seen smoking a large joint.

Images of breast nudity are glimpsed in pictures on a teenage boy's bedroom, in the pages of a magazine, and on an album cover.

There are references to suicide, all within a fantastical science fiction context.
