Not necessarily stalked, but Ted does seem to try to follow Sam around when they are at school and on the bus.

Yes, one character lets another character “borrow” his very inebriated girlfriend who is way too drunk to consent. It is implied the other guy has “sex” with her while she thought she was having sex with her boyfriend the whole time. This is played as if it’s a hilarious joke and not literally r***.

This was never okay, as another commenter implied. This movie is one of the reasons people thought this behavior was “okay” for so long.

Trigger warning: a teen girl is treated like a fleshlight by her boyfriend and another teen male at the school. Her boyfriend acts like her sexuality is his to give away or keep, and orchestrates her rape. The other teen male nonviolently rapes her while she is blackout drunk after being assured by her boyfriend she won’t wake up. extremely disturbing and definitely shows the attitudes that dominated the sexual culture in the old days, and why so many women of past generations were silent about when they were raped. in this movie it’s portrayed under the context of “sex” the whole time and that there is nothing wrong with it, that this is “normal” teen behavior and just what sexually active girls should expect in the 80s. I rarely give opinions/commentary on DDD outside of just the facts of what happens in the movie, but i have to say this movie was very difficult and triggering to watch
