A woman is lying in bed and pulls the sheet down revealing her breasts, which are shown for about 10 seconds.

A man and a woman begin to make out in bed and he pushes her shirt up to show her back, but the scene cuts away before anything happens.

Sex is discussed more than once, using the F-word and revealing that adultery has taken place.

A man is shot in the leg. He is shown vomiting and a pool of blood is seen. He is then shown in the OR with his leg being operated on (somewhat graphic).

A man cuts his finger, resulting in quite a bit of blood.

A woman is shown cleaning up a pool of blood on a sidewalk.

In a brief clip of a ridiculous action movie that Steve Martin's character is previewing, idiots with guns are shown hijacking a bus and shooting the driver and a few passengers. Not much blood, it's violent but not at all realistic.

Even though there is no death or injury as a result. Only property damage. There is a very scary drive-by shooting.

Two policemen accost a teenager.

20 - 25 uses of "fuck". 20 or so uses of "shit". Occasional milder profanity.

Some occasional wine consumption. Maybe a scene or two where liquor is consumed.

One scene where a woman is smoking a cigarette.

A man is confronted by gang members toward the beginning of the film, one of whom shows him the handle of a gun threateningly.

There is a drive-by shooting scene, very startling that shows a house get riddled with bullets as the mother and little girl jump to the floor to avoid being hit.

A man suffers an apparent heart attack.

There is a frightening looking homeless man that makes a couple of startling appearances.
