A couple of uses of "shit", "goddamn", "ass", and some other mild profanities.


A main character constantly smokes, takes diet pills, and drinks alcohol. One scene involves where characters about to snort some cocaine (two for the first time and having a big discussion before hand of the pros and cons).


If there were any frightening or intense scenes, they are all meant to be comical in nature.

17/50 - Recommended for 14+

The rating is slightly exaggerated as there is no actual nudity, sex scenes, or violence. Apart from a few instances of sex talk, references, and a scene of cocaine use, the film is relatively very mild.

This proves the futility of the R rating. I'd let anyone over 12 watch this.

Rated R for a scene of drug use and some sexual references
