Near the end of the film, a man and a woman begin to kiss. Sex is implied, but the screen goes dark before much of anything is shown.

Ellen Barkin's character wears a few revealing costumes (short skirts, low necklines), but there is no visible sex or nudity in this film.

There are numerous gunfights and fatalities, but no blood or gore is shown. One character is briefly (but fatally) choked, and one alien dies after hitting his head on a rock.

Misuse of "God." Light cursing includes the 's' word, 'h' word, and 'd' word. One character makes an obscene gesture at another.

Ellen Barkin's character drinks alcohol and points a gun to her head in the nightclub scene. One alien smokes a pipe. There are no references to drug use.

Buckaroo Banzai is tortured by means of electric shocks, but he escapes unscathed. Ellen Barkin's character is also bound and tortured.
