A man hints to another man that he has an erection the other man also admits that he had one too and refers to it as hard as a rock. They both go on to sing a crude song in reference to their erections.

Adults are seen drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes, cigars etc. at a social dancing club.

A reference to Cocaine is made when the three men cant understand that since swimming in the pool they have all of a sudden felt youthful again. One of the men says " I wander if there's Cocaine in there?" an other man says " I don't care" and jumps in regardless.

Very mild horror - as a man peeps at a woman undressing she not only removes her clothes but her skin too this shocks and frightens the man and he runs away the woman's companions catch up with him to find out what is going on the frightened man shouts "she's not normal" one of her companions then pulls down his eyelid to revel that he can remove his skin too. This frightens the man even further forcing him to jump into the lake.

The three men are busy splashing about in the pool when one notices the aliens returning the men panic and hide on a cupboard. you see the alians all take their skin off and jump in to the pool. one of the aliens ( in alien form) opens the cupboard where the men are hiding this frightens the men out of their wits and they run away.

Towards the end of the movie it is found that a large number of senior citizens are missing from a nursing home and they are found on a boat which is sailing out to sea. The local authorities are under the impression that they are been kidnaped and send out police helicopters, boats etc. to try and stop them. however all the passengers are there through their own choice as they want to go to the plaint that the aliens come from. you see a young boy who is clearly upset that he wont see his grand parents again run and jump on to the boat. his mother is clearly distressed by this and is franticly trying to get him back to her.
