The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

A woman invites a man to join her for a bath; we see them later in the tub kissing. A man kisses a young woman (he's her teacher). A man and a woman kiss a few times, a woman kisses a man on the cheek, two men hold hands as they walk down the street, a man and a woman flirt. Women dance in a club wearing outfits that show bare abdomens, cleavage and bare thighs. A young woman dances erotically, climbs onto a man's lap and puts his hands on her clothed breasts. A young woman wears outfits that reveal her bare abdomen in many scenes (she has a large tattoo around her navel and a jewel). Two young women wear school uniforms with short skirts that reveal their bare thighs. A woman wears shorts and a short top that reveal her bare thighs and bare abdomen, a woman wears a very tight-fitting dress that shows her cleavage, a woman wears a halter top that shows her cleavage and bare abdomen, and a woman wears a robe after getting out of the tub. A man's shirt hangs open and we see his bare chest, and a man is not wearing a shirt and we see his bare back and chest. Women working at a nightclub wear very short shorts and small tops. A man says about a young woman "she's giving me the eye," a woman says of her teacher "we're lovers."

Violence & Gore

A man punches another man in the face repeatedly (he has a bloody, bruised and swollen face) and the man doing the beating has a very bloody hand. Another man is punched in the face and he has a bloody nose. We hear a dog being beaten (thuds, yelping and whimpering) and we see the dog lying on the ground with bloody wounds. A man is beaten up by two men who slam his head into a desk, kick and punch him and hold a gun to his head (his face is bloody). A man puts an injured dog in the trunk of his car and is bitten on the neck while doing so (we see a trickle of blood on the man's neck). A woman slaps a man in the face. A woman cleans a man's wounded face and we see a bowl of water fill with blood. A man holds a gun on another man and threatens to "beat him until his eyes bleed." A man threatens a man with a baseball bat and a group of men taunt him. We hear about a man's mother having died when he was young. A man goes through a litany of every racial stereotype, as well as every group that may have been a subject in the news (priests abusing little boys, police officers beating suspects, etc.) and speaks of each in hateful and derogatory terms. We look down from a high rise apartment building onto the ruins of the Twin Towers and haunting music accompanies the scene as we watch clean-up crews hauling away rubble. A man talks abusively to another man, a man yells at another man, and a woman yells at a man. A dog snarls at men. A man talks about not surviving prison and he details how he'll be raped and beaten with a pipe. A man has multiple piercings all over his face.

Profanity

98 F-words, 14 sexual references (including references to prison rape), 35 scatological terms, 29 anatomical terms, 16 mild obscenities, 1 derogatory term for Hispanic-Americans, 1 religious profanity, 18 religious exclamations.

The main character is a drug dealer, and cops find drugs hidden in his house--but no illegal drug use is shown. There is a lot of drug talk. Lots and lots of drinking, to varying degrees of dunkenness. A group of older men give a 17-year-old alcohol, and we hear that she took ecstasy (e). Many characters smoke a lot.
