The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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.

In two scenes, prostitutes' breasts are shown. In one of these, players are snorting cocaine off a prostitute's breasts. In the other, a prostitute is seen in bed after her night's work. The man talks of needing a pump.

There are three locker room scenes which contain naked players. Two of them include frontal nudity--once in the showers in the background, once in the foreground as the player shakes hands with the female owner.

There are no sex scenes.

The film includes several extended sequences of professional football games played to accentuate the violence of the sport. Most of them show serious and bloody injuries. In one such scene, after showing a player's eye-socket, his eyeball complete with optic nerve is shown lying on the turf. Medics then bag up the eye and place it in an icebox, leaving a bloody stain on the field.

One scene shows scenes from Ben Hur including the chariot race in which a man is run over and dragged by a chariot. The chariot race is on a TV in the background.

A wife slaps her husband.

A man shoves another man so hard that he falls down against a wall.

The F-word is used at least 124 times. The S-word is used at least sixty-seven times. The N-word is used at least twenty-three times. A woman is called a dyke several times. There are other vulgarities and quite a number of religious profanities.

A couple of characters (and several extras) smoke cigarettes and cigars.

Cocaine is shown in use as is a cortisone injection.

Several party scenes and bar scenes include drinking, in some cases to excess.

The final football game is very intense as we watch to see who is going to be injured and how badly.
