Frequent scenes of a sexual nature.

Opening scenes include a man having intercourse with several different women - brief back and frontal female nudity is shown. Orgasm is implied and a used condom is visible at the end of one scene.

A man is in a bar/resturant and sees women wearing no bras, a close up of a woman wearing a see through shirt exposing her breasts (nipples are visible) appears on camera for a brief moment.

Many scenes of female nudity throughout the film. Including a crowd of women walking around wearing no clothes (although only breasts and top half are easily visible)

Male erection is shown on several occassions (whilst male is fully clothed) Masturbation is suggested although not shown.

Several images of pornography are shown during a few scenes in the begining (Video tapes, magazines etc,) and the female lead works as a CyberNanny - a few brief shots of porn sites are shown at her work.

Two females share a brief but intense kiss, with vivid use of their tongues.

Near the end of the film, Nicole rapes Matt while he is handcuffed to the bed sleeping. While this happens Matt has a dream sequence which is as follows. A scene of millions of breasts are shown as the man is "flying" across them all. Sexual intercourse is portrayed in a symbolic way and orgasm is implied by a man opening a washing machine and being sprayed with so much water he falls over.

As mentioned above (see "Sex & Nudity" for more details), a man who has handcuffed himself to a bed is raped (for lack of a better term) by his ex girlfriend (not so much violent but disturbing, especially given the fact this is a comedy).

Moderate uses of the F-word. Mild language throughout.

People are seen drinking in a nightclub. A man is seen drinking alcohol and smoking alone. No drugs.

The end scene (see nudity section) is rather dark and disturbing, while the rape scene is not violent, it could leave viewers distressed since Nicole gets away with the crime, and Matt has to take the blame.
