Sex & Nudity


A character reads a magazine called 'Modern Sperm.'

There is a newsstand magazine section labeled "Whacking Material" with various suggestive magazine covers, including a few naked women on the covers. This scene is brief and you have to look close to see the naked women.

A character reads a magazine with pictures of scantily clad women.

A man asks a child a series of stranger and stranger questions, eventually asking if he's "ever seen a grown man naked."

We see a woman's breasts shaking (fully clothed but the women is large breasted & not wearing a bra).

A woman inflates an inflatable pilot. The scene is comedic but the joke is that it looks like she's giving him oral sex.

As passengers are panicking, a woman wearing only a thong walks into view. We can clearly see her breasts and she dances in front of the camera for about 5 seconds.

Two characters have an affair (in comedic effect) in flashbacks.

Lots of sexual references.

Violence & Gore


People commit suicide by hanging, by lighting themselves on fire, and by stabbing themselves (none graphic) after having to listen to a boring story (this played out for comedic effect).

Comic punching.

There is a very quick sight gag involving the use of feces as a comic prop. No humans or animals are seen or heard producing or interacting with the feces.

A man is stabbed in the back as part of a gag. There is no blood or gore, and the protruding knife handle is a fairly obvious prop.

Two girls fight, including hitting each other with chairs, glasses, bottles, before one throws the other across a bar.

2 uses of ass

1 use of damn


A character frequently states that he plans to stop smoking and drinking.

A man sniffs glue.

A man uses amphetamines in an abusive manner.
