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.

Sex & Nudity

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".

Violence & Gore

In an over-the-top fantasy, a man kissing a woman's arm has his arm snapped briefly in a fight. Another man is hit numerous of times in the groin and bitten there. Another man has his heart torn out and put in a paper bag (some blood).

A man is shot twice in the chest with bloody bullet holes briefly. He falls down.

A man punches a hassling man through a glass phone booth.

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

Harry's pant leg catches on fire. He appears okay.

Lloyd accidentally kills an owl with a cork from a bottle. In the unrated edition, a man briefly kills a bird offscreen by crushing its head.

Profanity

4 uses of 'shit', a few of 'p-ssy', 2 of 'son of a bitch' and 'asshole', and 1 of 'chicks'. And 8 uses of 'hell' and 'God', 4 of damn', 3 of 'bastard', 2 of 'Jesus', and 1 of 'crap', 'piss', and 'Goddamn'. 'Fuck' is used once in an alternate ending.

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 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.
