Sex & Nudity

  • In the first story, several women gather around and perform a ritual. Two of them are topless, and the scene goes on for maybe 2 minutes or so. Not much focus is put onto the women's breasts, however. Later they perform another ritual and are all completely clothed except for one girl who is wearing pasties.
  • One of the women from the ritual is scorned because she admits to swallowing a man's semen. The sperm was an ingredient needed for their ritual, and the woman is given one hour to collect more. A little bit later she meets a man who is reluctant at first to have sex with her, but then later obliges. They are shown passionately kissing and she removes her top and reveals her breasts, but then nothing after that.
  • "The Wrong Man"
  • A man walks into a room and is accused by another man of sleeping with his wife. This is a very confusing scene that's all over the place. It's eventually implied that the whole thing is a sex game. The second man kisses the original man and then tries to persuade him to have sex with his wife. No actual sex or nudity, just sexual dialogue. At one point the woman is bragging about the size of the first man's penis to her husband (she is lying, as they had never met before), and she uses many, many terms to refer to his genitals. It's an unbelievably mixed up scene that will most likely confuse a lot of people.
  • "The Misbehavers"
  • A man and his wife passionately kiss a few times. When they are gone, their young child is shown watching a pole dancer on TV (no nudity).
  • A husband asks his wife if she wants to have fun.
  • When the father tells the children if they need anything to call Ted, the girl winks at Ted provocatively.
  • "The Man From Hollywood"
  • Two naked women run out of the Penthouse, with their butts briefly exposed. They are only onscreen for several seconds. Later there is some sexual dialogue, though nothing too explicit.

Violence & Gore

  • Many people shout and yell with harsh language, particularly the main character Ted.
  • A dead hooker is shown underneath a bed (one character refers to her twice as a "whore"), and she is very bloody, perhaps having died from an OD.
  • A man gets stabbed in the leg with a syringe.
  • A child accidently lights a room on fire.
  • A man loses a bet and gets his finger chopped off. It is barely shown; maybe on screen for a fraction of a second. No detial at all is put into the blood/gore that may have been present had it been focused on.

Profanity

  • There is very harsh language in this film. Many uses of shit, bitch, bastard, etc. Most commonly used however is the f-word. It is used over a hundred times, probably. Very explicit in that regard.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A child smokes a cig while another child drinks champagne.
  • Many references to alcohol, drugs, and smoking. A syringe plays a large part in one part of the film (it is implied that it was used by a junkie hooker).
  • 4 characters in the climax of the film are drunk out of their minds. There is an abundance of alcohol consumption depicted in Four Rooms.
  • A woman smokes marijuana in her house.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A dead bloody woman is shown underneath a bed.
  • A man must light his cigarette lighter 10 times in a row in order to win a car. If he fails, he gets his finger chopped off.
