Rated R for strong language and sexuality/nudity.

Times listed are approximate.

One moderate sex scene with thrusting, moaning and explicit sex talk. Her breasts can be seen briefly. After the scene, the woman walks around naked and part of her bare breasts can be seen, as well as her buttocks. A woman's bare butt is scene from the side. I recall this scene appeared suddenly. [~0:16:20-17:34]

A man enters another man's room. A poster shows a naked woman with others' hands covering her most private parts. [~0:26:32 brief]

A man leans over, kisses a woman and puts his hand on her clothed breast [~1:03:00]

Scene inside a men's locker-room, where many male nudity shots are seen (only back side) [~1:06:30~07:00, and ~1:10:00]

A man and woman kiss, then he kisses her neck and torso, [~1:19:00-21:00]

People have sex. [~1:23:00-24:00]

Locker room has a man seen nude from behind; a woman's head approaches his penis in a non-sexual way. [~1:41:50]

A quick showing of Tom Cruise's rear when he gets out of bed and slips on his underwear

During these scenes very brief frontal male nudity can be seen.

Some very passionate kissing and implied sex.

Some football violence.

Blasphemy, plus a number of other curses, including 13 instances of the 'f' word.

Smoking: Not very much. Jerry (Tom Cruise), Ethan (Eric Stoltz) and Bob (Jay Mohr) smoke a cigar once. Laurel (Bonnie Hunt) smokes a cigarette twice.

Alcohol: Jerry and Rod (Cuba Gooding Jr.) drink at the airport lobby and later on the plane (only Jerry). Jerry, who's drunk during the scene, and Dorothy (Rene Zellweger) have a beer on their "date". Matt Cushman (Beau Bridges) drinks a beer mixed with tomatoe juice in one scene. A woman drinks champagne on the plane. At several party-events, in restaurants and at women's group meetings there's much drinking of alcohol, mostly backround.

Drugs: None.

One scene can be intense, but it is nothing to worry about.
