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.

Two brief "tape" playbacks of a scene with a couple having sex. Once showing the woman in bra and panties, and later showing the woman's breasts during intercourse, when one of the characters plays back the image stored to pleasure himself.

Dr. Lillian Reynolds (Louise Fletcher) is a chain smoker. At one point she is told, "You smoke too much."

Dr. Reynolds experiences a cardiac arrest and dies. She manages to capture much of the painful and horrific experience on tape as she feels the heart attack coming on. The traumatizing tape is replayed several times, once fatally for a co-worker.

Young Chris Brace (Jason Lively) steals a peek at his father's human-recording device and unwittingly plays back a mentally and emotionally abusive tape, which throws Chris into a psychotic breakdown.
