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

A mature sexual situation is portrayed in this movie. But the way it's shown in the movie it's more goofy and funny than actually mature. Nothing sexual content or nudity, but there is quite a lot of dialogue referring to sex: A man tells his wife he remembers the exact date they stopped having sex. There are other mild/moderate references like that, but there is rather a strong one where a woman explains to her brother that she was tied to a bed and defecated on. This is referenced later when the brother says to his wife "A strange man defecated on my sister."

Violence & Gore

A man walks into his mistress' apartment after she has been murdered at his command. We see her dead body (eyes still open) with some blood on the floor.


One or two uses of 'bullshit' is the worst it gets.

Drinking games are seen performed by kids not of the legal age to drink. Other than that there are a few parties at which adults drink. Mild smoking and a few drug references.

There are two stories in the film: one dramatic and one comedic. The dramatic story is often intense and dark - a lot darker than other Woody Allen films. There are several scenes and conversations that may make people uncomfortable and/or upset, and the scene in which we see the dead mistress is a bit disturbing.
