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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex/Nudity: 5/10

A woman watches a man approach a married woman and caress her clothed breasts from behind (the man may or may not be the woman's husband).

Two women overhear a man and woman having sex off-screen (we hear the woman moaning).

A woman's robotic double is shown wearing a sheer nightgown (her bare breasts are visible).

For almost all her appearances in the film, Katharine Ross is delightfully free of the encumbrances of bras.

Violence/Gore: 5/10

Two cars collide and a woman injures her head (we see her being taken to a hospital).

A man and a woman argue, he throws a glass, shattering it, and grabs the woman as she tries to run up a staircase; she frees herself, he falls, and she locks herself in a room.

A woman cuts her finger with a kitchen knife (a little blood is visible) and then stabs a robotic woman in the stomach (she does not bleed).

A woman hits a man over the head with a fireplace poker (blood sprays onto a chair and we see blood on his forehead).

A man chases a woman through several rooms; the woman enters a room where a robotic double of herself approaches her menacingly while clutching panty hose (it is implied that the woman is killed and replaced by the robotic double).

Profanity: 4/10

At least 2 scatological terms, many sexual references, 2 anatomical terms (1 mild), 9 mild obscenities, 6 religious profanities, 15 religious exclamations.

The word "bitch" is used in the movie.

Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 4/10

Adult characters drink and smoke cigarettes in several scenes; a man appears in a presumably intoxicated state in a few scenes.

Frightening/Intense Scenes: 7/10

The whole movie can be quite intense and creepy. The ending might be shocking and depressing.

Total Content Estimation: 25/50
