The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

Suggested MPAA rating: R for Strong Violence, Language and Brief Drug Use

Violence & Gore

People are shot, not too bloody, explosions kill people.


Frequent use of the f- and s- words but nothing too extreme (probably around a dozen of each)

You see Jim Carrey's character inserting a needle into his arm, shooting the heroin and then you see him lying around, being completely stoned

Some disturbing scenes including where a guy sets himself on fire (although the scene isn't that explicit)
