Sex & Nudity

  • 3/10
  • A.J. sensuously kisses Grace's back (with the strap of her dress down off her shoulder).
  • As Grace lies on the ground with her dress undone (exposing her belly and black bra), A.J. playfully moves some animal cracker figures across her body. He moves one "north" where he says it can find "ample nourishment" (as he touches her breast with it) or "south" and he partially puts it inside the top of her underwear.
  • Literally right after the above mentioned scene, there is a strip club scene.

Violence & Gore

  • 5/10
  • Most of the violence isn't human on human, but instead involves massive destruction and millions of implied deaths.
  • Asteroid chunks hit a satellite and the man working on it. The man is then briefly seen cut in half (his lower half is shown briefly with some blood).
  • Although played for humour, Harry chases A.J. around the oil rig, firing a shotgun at him (and blowing out windows, etc...).
  • An asteroid falls to Shanghai,China drowning a lot of people.
  • A major meteor takes down Paris with a ground waved smash heading toward the screen. This is the most disasterous and intense scene in this movie.

Profanity

  • 6/10
  • 2 uses of fuck, 6 uses of shit, 16 hells, 8 asses, 8 damns, 1 use of son of a bitch. (and 2 incomplete ones), and 8 uses of "G-damn," 4 uses of "Oh my God," 3 uses of "God," 2 uses each of "Swear to God," "Oh Jesus," "Oh God" and "For God's sakes," and 1 use each of "My God," "Jesus," and "By God" as exclamations.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Rockhound has drinks with a woman in a bar, and we later see others having drinks in a strip club.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Young kids (and other viewers) may be frightened or unsettled by the overall concept of impending doom via a large and fast approaching asteroid. Likewise, they may find the mayhem- filled scenes -- where "smaller" chunks of it impact in different cities, presumably killing many people -- just as scary or unnerving.
  • Near the beginning, New York is pelted by rocks from space. A building collapses with many people falling past the camera to their deaths.
  • There are a couple of highly emotional scenes towards the end of the film especially one where a character is saying goodbye to the other characters.
  • The scientific inaccuracies can be pretty frightening, too.
