One scene shows a man and woman having sex with most of their clothes on.

The film addresses discrimination based on sexual orientation. The main character takes a doctored photo of himself and sends it to his employer anonymously - he fears being laid off from his job and wants his boss to think he is gay. Then the boss will not fire him so he is not firing him based on his sexuality.

The main characters work at a condom factory and a scene is shown of a gay pride day parade, where a man is seen on a float wearing a condom on his head and with an oversized penis atop it. This is televised and witnessed by his son and ex-wife.

One man is shown wearing leather pants with holes cut out of the buttocks.

Comments are made throughout the film which could be interpreted homophobically in some cases.


Two factory workers supposedly beat up the main character (not shown). His bruised face is later shown and he seems to be in some pain. Mild.

A few coarse words.

Some people have a glass of wine with a meal.

The main character implies he smoked a joint with his teenage son. The boy is shown smoking a cigarette.

Rated R for a scene of sexuality
