Sex & Nudity


There are sexual jokes made at several points during the film.

There are a few scenes depicting porn-star stand-ins filming simulated sex scenes (including oral sex and humping scenes). A man and woman are naked throughout these scenes with her breasts visible and in some cases, his hands are used to cover/hold her breasts. All sex acts are simulated but still graphic. However these are played in a more comedic and innocent sense. (The couple later date and get engaged)

Another couple is seen undressing and preparing to have sex in a bedroom. Although they keep getting interrupted before they can do the act, the woman's shirt and bra are at one point removed and her bare breasts can be seen for a quick moment. The man's shirt is off but boxers are still on before the scene ends.

One man travels to the United States with the intention of having sex with as many American women as he possibly can. He tells his friend he is bringing a ton of condoms as American women love British men. He meets three suggestively-dressed females in a bar in Wisconsin and proceeds to visit their house, where they suggested he sleepover in one small bed with them after complimenting his accent and learning he has no place to spend the night. Later, as a fourth girl is approaching the house, a silhouette of the man and three girls can be seen in which they are all naked and kissing, then drop to the ground/bed in the window. The man then comes back home with two girls, one for him and the other for his friend.

One mans wife suspects her husband of having an affair when he buys his secretary a very pricey necklace for Christmas. Several times it is implied that the affair did happen but it is never shown.

One joke about selling a women to be used for prostitution.

During one scene at a gallery event, there is an art piece on display depicting nudity (topless women).

A man plays a guitar naked for a music video with the guitar covering his genitalia.

One woman is seen in bra and underwear several times, however she is alone at home in a mirror.

Violence & Gore

0/10 None



A few profanities including the F word are used but are meant to be comedic.


Several characters drink at a party but nothing over the top.


The scene with the woman thinking her husband had an affair and crying to herself can be emotionally intense.

19/50 - this is okay for 15+ (from sexuality and nudity)
