Lab hamsters escape and one happens to crawl up inside a man's pants. It then looks like the man is having an erection, when really it's just the hamster under the zipper area of the pants.

There are two scenes when a stand-up comedian tells dirty jokes. In the second scene, Buddy Love tells some dirty jokes as well.

Klump's grandmother refers to sex as "relations" and states that there's nothing wrong with that. She tells of her earlier years where she had "relations" every night with men, and that now when she's alone, she "relates" to her self. She then tells Carla that Klump's never had "relations" and that he'll be able to wear a white tux when he's married. But she states that she's not sure about Carla.

Buddy Love brings 3 women to his apartment. There is real suggestive innuendo that they all slept together, as we see the women in the bedroom the next morning.

some kissing scenes

lots of love scenes out of the film

A comedian (fed up with being out done by Love) goes into a karate pose and goes after Love who grabs his foot and flips him over onto his back. Love then grabs him and smashes his head into a piano. Moments later, he crushes the guy's fingers to make him yell and then ends up throwing the comedian inside the grand piano.

During the dinner scene, Cletus Klump, in response to Mama Klump's comment about a colonic, proceeds to fart loudly six times, the last one being implied to have resulted in him soiling his pants. Just before his final fart, however, Hercules proceeded to mimic Cletus by farting loudly as well.

A man gets punched twice(once resulting in being knocked out) and then later punches the guy who punched him.

Some slapstick.

11 "s" words, 33 "ass" words, 9 damns, 9 slang terms for breasts (the "t" word), 8 hells, 5 slang terms for penis (the "d" word), 5 "n" words
