Several scenes of topless female nudity especially during a long strip club and mud-wrestling scene. The other Scenes include: 1: A man walks into his house and is greeted by his girlfriend who has an unbuttoned shirt briefly exposing breasts. 2: An officer watches the women's shower room with a spyglass, we see what he sees which in women showering fully nude, although only breasts and buttocks are seen (aside from a glimpse of some genital hair). Lots of steam obscures the whole scene, too. 3: During the strip club scene some of the waitress have no tops. 4: After the strip club scene two recruits go into a vacant house with two female MPs (sex is implied, but no nudity--except in the extended version, where a woman is seen topless).

Explosions are seen

Francis, a.k.a. "Psycho", threatens various people, though it's deliberately over the top for the sake of comedy.

Some fighting

4 F-Words

Marijuana and some drug references including taking "acid" and smoking marijuana during one of the extended scenes.

Rated R for crude and sexual content, nudity, language and some mild violence and drug use.

Not too too bad. 13+ (the nudity is the main thing to worry about)
