Rated R for some language

Some bikini-clad women are in the background during a scene near a beach.

Armand and Albert are a homosexual married couple with an equally homosexual house boy/"maid". They treat each other affectionately, including soft kisses on the cheek, hand holding and touching. This is all done tastefully versus erotically.

Some sexual discussion, mostly in a homosexual context.

Nothing overt, if at all.

There is a scene of implied violence; Armand confronts/insults a large man and is afterwards tended to by Albert, who alludes to the man "sitting on him" and "banging (Armand's) head on the ground". Nothing is seen.

8 uses of 'fuck', 5 of 'fag' (in context), 4 of 'shit', 2 of 'bastard' and 'asshole', and 1 of 'wh-re', 'son of a bitch', 'cock', and 'prick'.

Some drinking. A couple of brief drug references. One or two instances of smoking.
