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.

Sex & Nudity

None of any concern.

On several occasions we see part of Chuck's bare butt while he wears a self-fashioned loin cloth that doesn't completely cover him at all times.

Some passionate kisses.

Violence & Gore

A plane crashes and presumably kills everyone onboard except for Chuck (we don't see their deaths, although we later see one body).

As a plane falls to the ocean, a co-pilot gets up and his head gets hit by the roof due to the strong frequent motion of the falling plane. We then see him with blood on his face as he cries in pain.

A huge wave knocks Chuck from his raft and we see his legs bang painfully, and bloodily, on some sharp coral.

Chuck punctures himself in the hand while attempting to build a fire. We see a hole in his hand and blood gushing out.

Chuck knocks his tooth out with the blade of a skating shoe; there's a spurt of blood and he faints from the pain.


At least 2 uses of S___, 2 Hells, 1 Damn, and 1 G__damn

Chuck sings a few lines from a Doors' song that includes, "Girl we couldn't get much higher" (but he's singing the song as related to the word "fire" since he's finally just succeeded at making one).

Chuck's flight (on a FedEx plane with only a few other people) runs into some turbulence from a storm and diverts its course. Chuck then goes into the bathroom to wash his face when a loud explosion of some sort shakes the plane and he's nearly sucked out of the bathroom due to a loss in cabin pressure. Another man then scrambles about to get Chuck an oxygen mask and get him back in his seat. He does that, but Chuck then gets back up -- as the plane dives in a partially controlled descent toward the ocean -- to retrieve the pocket watch his girlfriend earlier gave him. As he holds onto some netting, the plane hits more turbulence and that other man is thrown into the ceiling where he bangs his head hard enough to draw blood. After a few moments, the plane slams into the ocean (seen only from the inside of the plane) and quickly fills with water and Chuck finds himself trying to get out before it sinks. As it does and he inflates his rubber raft while underwater, the emergency transmitter attached to the raft becomes caught in the sinking wreckage and becomes detached from the raft, sending Chuck speeding towards the surface with the raft.

Chuck talks of committing suicide and how he used a wooden dummy to test the rope before he was going to hang himself.

Chuck finds the decaying remains of one of the pilots once he reaches the island, and the scene is emotional (he also finds a photo on the dead man of him and his children). Chuck brings it ashore and buries it.

An extremely emotional scene shows Chuck mourning after he loses his self-made companion, "Wilson".
