A woman tries to hit a man a few times but she is blocked.


1 not fully-enunciated F-Word (cut off by start of credits), 4 scatological terms (2 mild, 2 in French and not translated in subtitles, so it would be missed if one doesn't speak French), 10 anatomical terms (mild; ass, a**hole), 5 mild obscenites (hell, damn, bugger), 9 religious exclamations.

Also, 1 use of bastard(s).

A bit more language than most PG films today, but not too bad, considering it's from 2003..


People are shown drinking alcohol.


Not much, it's a comedy.
