The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity


Pervasive and frequent crude sexual humor throughout the film. A sleazy older man picks up a teenage girl (played by an adult male) and takes her to a garbage dump where they have sex on a filthy mattress. He subsequently performs oral sex on her, as over-the-top sucking noises can be heard while the girl repeatedly tells him to "eat it". Traces of faeces are visible on the man's underwear. Both characters are played by Divine (which is why you do not see the two characters' faces in the same shot), and in a later scene, the man tells the woman to go "fuck [herself]" as a callback to the sex scene. There is no nudity in this scene.

A brief but explicit scene of a naked woman bouncing on a naked man's face. Contains some genital detail.

Two closeup shots of penises.

A woman is shown fondling her breasts while looking at herself in a mirror.

Several grown men make sexual propositions to a 14-year-old girl (she is, however, played by a 26-year-old actress).

Violence & Gore


Brief, satirical references to child abuse: a mother attempts to beat her child with a car aerial and then chains her to her bed with the assistance of two friends.

A woman on a stage fires a gun into the audience, killing one man.

A riot ensues and police kill one man with a shotgun, resulting in a bloody face wound.

A woman throws acid into another characters face, resulting in bloody burns and later, grotesque disfigurement.

A woman is locked in a giant birdcage and later has her hand chopped off. Her bloody stump of a wrist is seen.

A man is (unrealistically) stabbed to death with a kitchen knife, with bloody results. A riot results in several deaths. A woman is electrocuted in the electric chair on-screen.

All violence in the film is deliberately over-the-top and so unrealistic that they cannot be taken seriously.



Contains frequent strong coarse language (i.e. fuck).

Also contains some use of milder terms (e.g. shit, asshole, god damn etc.).


A woman takes a recreational intravenous injection (of liquid eyeliner) in her arm in order to get high and "heighten one's beauty awareness".


Although all horror scenes are played for laughs, they are still relatively graphic.

46/50 - Recommended for 18+
