Towards the very end of the film a woman stripteases for bored party guests, but nothing explicit is shown (she is shown topless for several seconds, but she is laying on the ground and from far away enough that you can't see anything). Several other characters offer to striptease before she does, and one of them is turned down because "everyone knows what you look like naked". Three minor characters are in drag at the end of the movie. A man declares a couple at the ending party will be the first "screwing". A woman's butt is slapped.

A woman and a man get into a heated argument and he slaps her.

Six uses of "damn" (three in quick succession by a chanting crowd), four uses of "whore" (two in quick succession), two uses of "bastard", one use of "slut", one use of "God", and one use of "sons of bitches".

Characters leisurely smoke cigarettes and drink various alcoholic drinks throughout the film.

A woman acts as if she's possessed at a ouija board. She shouts and screams a bit and writhes about for about thirty seconds. All in all, the film should be fine for all children ages 13 and up, although most children will probably not be interested in this movie or just be confused by it. Suggested MPAA Rating: PG-13 for Language, Mild Sexual Content, Smoking, Alcohol Use, and Mild Violence.
