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.

There is a scene involving a woman taking her dress off, but only her breasts are seen. Directly afterward, she and the main character have sex, with the soundtrack covering any sensual sounds. During the sex scene, breasts are seen multiple times.

Several shots to the head, with blood splattering. Other than that no excessive violence or gore.

Some mild swearing. One "fuck" and a few "shit"s is the worst it gets.

Alcohol seen a few times during the course of the film. Smoking and cigarettes shown twice.

Bethlehem kills a few people in cold blood, often at point blank range. These scenes are intense.

Overall, the film is a very light R.
