Sex & Nudity

During a car chase with Cash, a couple is seen naked in the back of a truck. Breasts and part of her rear is seen.

Tango and Cash are seen naked from behind walking into a shower.

In one scene, Cash appears to be having sex with Tango's sister, but she's really just massaging him.

There is a dressing room scene with about 6-8 naked women (breasts seen only)

While Cash is tied to a chair, a woman sits straddling his lap and moves suggestively. It is implied that she may be having sex with him while he is unable to do anything about it.

On the walls of Cash's jail cell are rather explicit images, though they're in the background and easily missed.

Violence & Gore

Character is found dead with his throat slashed. Graphic.

Very little violence until the end, where there's an extended shootout with some minor blood splatter. This could be too actiony to some.

In the prison scene, Tango and Cash are nearly electrocuted to death.


Occasionally strong. 21 uses of f*ck, 6 uses of sh*t, 4 uses of a**hole, 3 uses of ass,1 use of pussy + more.

Cocaine is found and tasted.

Some minor drinking at the club.

Fairly intense prison scenes as well the shootout at the end.
