Sally Field's ex-husband, Bobby Jack, is always trying to sleep with her, but is played for comedic effect.

Bobby Jack enters the shower nude, and his buttocks are visible for a second.

Some mild but frank talks about sexuality and relationships. These conversations last seconds at a time. Mention is made in passing of a town cross-dresser, and that abortion is not available. Murphy admits he visits a woman out of town for companionship.

A scene in a movie theatre includes a scene from a "Friday the 13th" movie, with some drops of blood falling onto a magazine and an impalement that cuts away without revealing any gore. No other violence beyond a few punches and arguments.

Damn is used quite often as well as hell, but harder words are seldom used. (S-word and B-word) There is one f-word, used in a sexual connotation.

Tequila and beer are drunk. A few cigarettes are smoked. Nothing extreme.

The principals watch a "Friday the 13th" scene in a movie theatre. A woman rests on a hammock until she finds blood dripping onto her magazine and she is suddenly impaled from beneath. The scene cuts away without revealing intense violence.
