In the opening sequence, a woman gives vaginal birth. Although it happens quickly, the vagina is briefly seen as the baby comes out.

A man lies nude on a sofa, with a woman blocking his genitals. They are shown through a window. She kisses him, then climbs onto him, and mild thrusting is visible for around 10-15 seconds. When the man sees another man watching them, he jumps off the sofa and chases him (we see him nude from the back).

A man imagines having sex with a woman; we see her breathing heavily, then the man moans and it is implied he climaxes.

In his dream, a man imagines a woman kissing him. He wakes up once she removes her top, with her breasts visible for around half of a second.

In a small photo, attached to a wall, a woman's breasts are visible.

Some non-explicit mentioning of pornographic websites.

A man makes sexual remarks about two women.

Women wear low-cut dresses in several scenes, exposing cleavage.

People mention asexual reproduction, and a man discusses insects "making love" to flowers while pollinating.

6/10 Two violent car crashes which show in bloody detail what happens to the people inside the car and afterwards. One includes a man flying through a windshield.

A man is shot. A man is attacked by an alligator.

7/10 At least 38 "f" words (2 used sexually as is the term "did it"), 12 "s" words, 8 assess (3 used with "hole"), 1 crap, 7 damns, 1 hell.

5/10 Susan repeatedly snorts a hallucinogenic drug made from flowers. (It looks like green cocaine).

Cigarette smoking is depicted.

5.5/10 Two very intense car crash sequences.

Unsettling sequences in the Florida swamp feature a multitude of frightening creatures, big and small.

Recommended for 16 and up.
