A thug tries but fails to rape Slater's teenage daughter. ( It's not an actual rape scene! ) A car crashes through a building, and a large group of attractive women in lingerie flee the room. A couple of references to "premature ejaculation."

The violence is tongue-in-cheek and pastiches the action genre. An escaped mental patient is thrown off of a roof by a gunshot blast. In retaliation, he grabs Slater's son by the shirt collar and drags him along, killing them both. Slater's friend is found beaten half to death. An explosion kills two police officers and wounds Slater. A car chase ends with Slater killing of dozens of criminals. One scene in particular has a stick of dynamite exploding an ice cream truck, killing one of the bad guys when a cone his in the back of the head and impales him. Thugs invade Slater's estate while he's gone, holding the two people hostage. Slater's daughter beats a man to death with her bare hands. Slater them initiates a large shootout that results in the death of most of the thugs. When in the real world, the main bad guy kills several innocent pedestrians. Slater kills a bad guy on a theater roof by electricuting him. After killing of the lead villian, Slater escapes seriously wounded, but manages to survive.

Lots of mild profanity scattered throughout the film. "F" word is used.

Slater is seen smoking cigars continually throughout the film.
