Sex & Nudity


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

Lots of mild sexual references and innuendos used here and there (ex. 'that's a nice set of hooters you got there...' 'I really want to bone her man!', 'oh, I want to make sweet, sweet love to you', etc".

In a dream, Mary opens up a door for Lloyd. They hug and kiss, and then he lifts her skirt to reveal her bare buttocks.

Harry and Lloyd, in their boxers, are in a hot tub talking about past relationships. In the unrated edition, one of them puts his ear to the wall to hear a couple have sex in the next room (we don't see anything, but we can clearly hear what's going on).

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

Lloyd uses the bathroom in a stall, when Sea Bass comes in and flings him against the wall. Sea Bass then pushes him down and pulls down his pants (he is wearing very revealing underwear that reveals some pubic hair), preparing to rape and kill Lloyd, but Harry comes in and knocks Sea Bass out.

A bus of bikini clad woman arrives to Harry and Lloyd and asks them to 'grease them up'. They decline. Some of the woman are wearing tankinis or usual bikinis, but a few others are wearing thongs that reveal a lot of their bare buttocks and cleavage on their breasts.

Violence & Gore


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.



Uses of "dick", "piss", "crap", "damn", "pussies" (as in "don't be a couple of ----), and "assholes". "Fuck" is used once in an alternate ending.

About 3-4 uses of "shit".

A few uses of "bastard", "son of a bitch" and "what the hell".


Some sequences of smoking a cigar and cigarettes

Some drinking by peripheral characters in a bar.

Lloyd pours substance called "turbo-lax" into Harry's tea, later we see miserable effects of it.

Joe uses pills throughout the film.

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


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

Lloyd rips a man's heart out (meant to be comedic, see violence category for more details).

Joe Mentalino eats a hamburger that contained very hot peppers, which Harry and Lloyd put in; he violently dies after Harry gives him rat poisoning, believing they were Joe's pills.

A parakeet's head is torn off (this is can be fully seen in the unrated version).

Sea Bass spits in Harry's burger (in the unrated version, it shows him doing it); this may gross some viewers out.

The scene in which Harry suffers from the "turbo-lax" may also gross viewers out.
