Moderate. 5 F-words, at least 10 shits and damns. Crap, asshole, bastard and jerk are used at least three times . Slurs directed at homosexuals and Mexican-Americans.

The climactic fight between two characters is not at all comic and is staged in a brutal fashion. Eerie music emphasizes the intensity of this scene.

By today standards, this movie might be "hard" PG-13
