Sex & Nudity

A man says "have you ever looked at a woman's tits?"

Violence & Gore

A man is briefly seen dead, laying on the ground, with a bloody bullet wound in his back.

A message on a computer screen threatens Jeffery's family; at the same time, Jeffery finds a bullet in his mailbox.


35 uses of "fuck". Some other, milder profanities.

A message on a computer screen says "WE WILL KILL YOU. WE WILL KILL ALL OF YOU. SHUT THE FUCK UP."

Some characters are seen casually drinking alcoholic beverages.

The story is that of the Master Settlement Agreement imposed by The Court for product tampering committed by several major tobacco companies, so tobacco references may be expected. Three brief scenes of background extras smoking outside.

Nothing really frightening or intense, but a girl has difficulty breathing in the beginning of the movie and her parents rush to help her.
