The film deals with the break-up of relationships to start new ones. There are references to sexual activity and, usually in casual slang, throughout the film.

In addition, there are a couple of joking references to specific private parts.

A man cuts himself shaving. The cut reopens and bleeds.

A man punches another man in the stomach causing him to crumple onto hands and knees.

The F-word is used three times. The S-word is used once. Several vulgar and profane expressions and exclamations turn up. There is also a whole catalog of archaic slang words insulting a gay man (used to tease him in a mean-spirited way for about five minutes).

One character is an alcoholic whom we see drinking on the job. He offers a drink to another man who accepts it and drinks it with him.

Two characters are smokers.
