A man takes off his clothes and he is showed bare-chested in a bathtub. A woman enters wielding a gun but instead of pulling it on him she begins to kiss him and climbs in the bathtub with her suit on. The scene cuts there.

Two passionate kisses:

The first is in public, and doesn't go anywhere.

In the second, the characters start to undress and are seen in their underwear but the camera cuts away before anything happens. The man is then seen on top of the woman (the scene is dark and we only see from their shoulders up) and they kiss. The scene cuts. In the next scene, they talk about having sex but not in detail.

Sexual references throughout.

**In a deleted scene** There's a homoerotic exchange between two characters. One man talks about getting a bath while the other talks about how "warm" and "wet" baths make you very relaxed. It's very clear this is a double entende. They stare at each other passionately throughout the scene. Then one mentions getting wine and they continue to stare longingly at each other. Then they realize how awkward the situation is and part ways.

A man is stabbed in prison. Some blood is shown, but not too graphic.

Four men storm a crackhouse and murder two people. We only hear gunshots and see brief, unclear shots of them grabbing the people. As one of the men spraypaints a wall, we see another wielding a hatchet in the background but it's unclear what he is doing with it. It's implied he is mutilating one of the victims, but no specifics or blood are seen. Before they raid the house, one of the men holds up the hatchet and another asks why he needs it. After the raid, one of the men is seen with a little blood on his shirt. It's clear he's very shaken up from what the others made him do to the victims.

A brief crime scene shows two murdered people with blood on the walls. One corpse is seen in the background with a very bloody face.

A man falls and accidentally shoots himself in the head. The shot is shown; graphic, bloody, but played for humor.

A man is shot 3 times in the chest.

2 men get in a brief fist fight.

A man is shot in the leg by a cop. Not graphic.

A few other scenes of mild violence. The headshot is the only scene of actually GRAPHIC violence.

***in the deleted scenes*** The crime scene with the two murdered people is extended and includes a close-up of one of the victims, who apparently has had his face shot or hacked off. Quite graphic and unexpected. It's also stated that the woman was raped, shot and thrown out a window. After the crime is committed, one of the criminals asks another "why did you do that to that girl?" implying he raped her.

At least 30 uses of the f-word. 2 sexually. Most f-words are used in a strong impact way.

A few uses of the: s-word, d-word, and b-word. A few "goddamns" but not a lot.

People casually drink and smoke nothing extreme.

Nothing frightening but a few scenes are intense. The deleted scene showing the murdered victims is very disturbing.

Rated R for language and some strong violence
