One scene of implied sex.

A woman puts her head near a man's crotch, making her ex-boyfriend think she's performing oral sex on him.

Edgar writes a song with humorously sexually explicit lyrics.

Edgar asks what "screw" means.

A man's hand is grabbed tightly.

A man is shocked by electricity numerous times.

A man's hand is burnt on a hot doorknob.

In a fantasy sequence, a pixelated man falls down a pit, and is nearly crushed by a building in an earthquake.

In a lengthy sequence, Miles comes home from a date with Madeline to find Edgar having a creepy drawing of an eye on his screen, and harasses him, until it becomes red to simulate anger. Miles unplugs Edgar, however he does not turn off leading to Miles pouring liquids on Edgar, however that fails too. Edgar begins to attack Miles with various appliances in what is portrayed to be a Pac-Man like maze in his eyes. No serious injury occurs.

Edgar explodes.

A few uses of "shit", several uses of "goddamn" in one scene, one use of "tits", and one use of "screw". The computer uses the word "f**k" several times (about 20!) in quick succession. This is heavily processed/sampled, but still can be understood.

The scene with Edgar attacking Miles can be frightening to some.

The scene where Edgar explodes is rather sad.
