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 few times where couples kiss passionately for extended periods of time. One man is seen walking around his apartment in just a tank top and underwear. One longer scene where a man and woman chase each other around an apartment (the woman just wearing a skirt and bra) then begin kissing and eventually move to the bed where they kiss passionately. The scene then cuts away and all we see is the woman lying on her stomach on the bed with no top on (though nothing is seen). The entire sequence is fairly lengthy and children may be wondering what's going on, though no actual nudity or sex is shown.

Violence & Gore

Most of the violence in the film is shot with a very low shutter speed so it's difficult to see what is happening. Though it is clear during one sequence that a woman is shooting some people that are chasing her. Blood can be seen on their clothes. The most graphic violence is when a woman shoots a man at close range. It's shot in silhouette so you don't see the wound but you do see blood spray from his body.


One S-word

One of the characters is a drug trafficker. We see them loading drugs into shoes and at one point filling condoms and giving them to other characters to "hide."

Many characters smoke throughout the movie.

Two characters are at a bar together and they buy numerous drinks, one passes out.

Some of the violence can seem intense. Particularly the scene where the woman sneaks up on the man and shoots him because it happens so suddenly.
