Frequent innuendo. A man and a woman are shown in bed together. No nudity.

Several corpses are shown, but they look more like wax-work sculptures. (This is meant to be funny.) Gunshots are heard offscreen. A woman slaps a man. Some blood is shown on a floor. A person slaps himself after someone tells him to do so. (Meant to be funny.)

Several usages of the term a**. One use of "G-Damn"

There is no drug usage. There is frequent alcohol drinking, but never to excess. Several characters are chain-smokers.

There really isn't an intense scene in the film.
