Sex & Nudity

No nudity.

One sex scene, but we only see a man and a woman in bed, completely covered.

Some talk about sex.

It is stated that an intruder broke into a woman's house and masturbated on her bed. Shortly after, Kevin Costner says "jerks off" when talking about the same incident.

Violence & Gore

The film opens with gun shots. We see some blood.

More gunshots and an explosion.

Threatening letters.

Two men fight hand to hand. Only one of them ends up with a bloody face.

A man attacks another man out of anger and hits him, making his face bleed profusely.

A scene from a black-and-white movie depics fighting with Samauri swords, where a man cuts off the arm of another man. We see the arm fly off and a close-up of the severed arm on the ground. Kind of gross and unexpected.

A woman is shot and killed briefly. We see a little blood on her robe.

A man holding a camera is shot in the shoulder (some blood on his shirt). Then the camera he holds is shot and it explodes in his face. Somewhat shadowed, but still visible. We see a split second of blood, but then the camera cuts away.


More than 10 F-words.

The threatening letters contain some nasty language.

Some of the characters drink alcohol.

Some smoking.

The beginning portion of the film is about the danger a stalker poses to a celebrity. We see threatening death notes he has written her, and hear that he has entered her house and sexually stimulated himself on her spare bed. We later see him sensually touching memorabilia of her that he has collected.

Also, a boat explodes and comes near to killing a child. There are several suspenseful scenes that involve guns or weapons, two of which culminate in violence.
