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.

Lots of sexual innuendo (sometimes explicit and including some references to fellatio, cunnilingus and homosexuality) and a couple of passionate kisses. We see several shots of a mnage trois taking place in a park (one man watches and a few young kids stumble onto the scene): we see two girls kissing, a girl touching another's bare breast in close-up and a man fondling a girl's thong-clad buttocks with his other hand underneath the other girl's skirt. We see the side of a girl's bare breast and some of her panties as she undresses and kisses a man; in a later scene a woman walks in on them while they're presumably having intercourse (we only see his bare torso and her legs). We see the side of a nude man (no explicit nudity is seen) lying in bed between to nude women (their backsides are visible). We see a few women in cleavage- and midriff-revealing shirts.

A person is shot (we don't see the impact but see blood on the back of the victim's shirt). A man slaps and chokes another man (he was trying to "pick up" the other); also, another slap and a shove. A man pounds a table, a woman throws her bag at a car and a man falls during a basketball game and limps off the court. A little threatening with guns. We hear a man urinate and see him standing in front of a toilet.

Some of the profanity is heard in the soundtrack music, but most is spoken. At least 210 F-words, lots of anatomical references and slang terms, lots and lots of scatological references, several mild obscenities, several insults and lots of racial epithets (they're mostly used between friends in a non-derogatory way).
