A man and a woman hug, then he lifts her skirt to briefly reveal her bare buttocks. Later, she removes her dress and the camera pans from bare shoulders to chest area, showing that her breasts are covered by headlights before the scene cuts.

A bus of bikini clad women arrives to Harry and Lloyd, saying they're looking for two 'oil boys to grease them up before tours'. They decline. Cleavage is visible on all of them shortly, and only one or two are fully seen in bikinis.

Harry and Lloyd are in a hot tub talking about a past relationship. In the unrated edition, a man and woman are heard having sex, as Lloyd puts his ear to the wall and makes a crude comment.

A man uses the bathroom in a stall, when another man comes in, shoves him roughly, and pulls down his pants (he has underwear that reveals some pubic hair), preparing to rape and kill him, but he is knocked out.

Harry sits down on the side of the road with his butt crack visible for a few seconds.

Some sexual references and innuendos, with the crudest (in the theatrical version) being a reference to the "shaggin wagon" and a man saying he has a romantic feeling for someone where "he'd do anything to bone her".

A man is hit numerous of times in the groin and bitten there as well.

There is one bloody violent scene: During a dream sequence, Lloyd tears a heart out of a living man's chest, and puts it into a paper bag (blood). Though it's meant to be comic, it is still rough and may scare children and/or disgust some older viewers.

Nicholas Andre shoots Harry twice with his pistol--we see two bloody holes in his chest and he falls back into the bed. It is later revealed Harry was wearing a bullet-proof vest.

A man punches another man through a glass phone booth (Comical but quite brutal)

Harry's pant leg catches on fire (comedic).

Lloyd kills an owl with a cork from a wine bottle (comedic, but may be disturbing).

Harry gets his tongue stuck to a frozen pole and later gets yanked off the pole.

10 uses of Hell, 3 uses of Ass, 2 uses of Asshole, 1 use of Goddam, 2 uses of Son-of-a-bitch, 3 uses of Shit, 5 uses of Damn, 1 use of Pussies, 1 use of God's sake, 1 use of Jesus Christ, 1 use of Bullshit, 2 uses of My God, 1 use of God, 2 uses of Pisses, 2 uses of Bastard

Occasional scenes of cigarette and cigar smoking.

Some drinking by peripheral characters in a bar.

Joe takes pills in a few scenes.

A cop pulls Harry and Lloyd over and notices several beer bottles, in which Lloyd peed in. The cop then drinks one of the bottles.

A fairly violent fantasy scene, even though it's intended to be comical.

A man eats a hamburger containing very hot peppers, he dies after Harry accidentally gives him rat poisoning.

A man is nearly raped, but is saved through dumb luck.

A parakeet is killed, we hear it squawking for a second or two in the unrated version.

Nothing is meant to be intense exactly, although the unrated hot tub scene is off-putting.
