None actually.

We see a car moving rhythmically and we see a man and woman inside with their clothing in disarray. Men talk about a woman's breasts while watching her play soccer. Women undress, to bras and panties, in a locker room. A woman and her daughter shop in a lingerie store, and the woman pushes up her daughter's breasts. A woman makes a sexual hand gesture.

At the wedding there is a couple kissing passionately in the toilets - the man's hand is clearly massaging the woman's breast - they are fully clothed and the scene is momentary. A fight breaks out later that implies that this has been caught on the wedding video camera.

A woman shoves another woman, tears her shirt and pushes her to the ground (during a soccer match). A woman slams a soccer ball into a man's crotch. A woman yells at, insults her daughter, and raises her hand to her. People argue and struggle over a video camera.

5 sexual references, 9 scatological terms, 5 anatomical terms, 14 mild obscenities, 1 racial slur, "paki", 1 derogatory term for homosexuals, 7 religious exclamation.

People are shown smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol.

No frightening or intense scenes.
