a man has his shorts lowered so his butt's upper portion is visible and his butt's crack and he puts a pen in it

At the beginning of the movie, several women talk about what they did with the same man. One woman says, "He pounded me like a mallard duck."

Many passionate kisses.

A woman and a man are seen making out on a couch.

A man kisses and grabs a woman's breast.

A woman's bare breast are shown when the main characters are leaving their daily restaurant. (Can be seen behind main characters to the upper right corner of the screen)

A man makes masturbation gestures.

Lots of sexual hand gestures.

A woman's hard nipples are shown through a white wet shirt when standing out in the rain.


We see a photograph of a woman with a bruised and cut face and with a large incision scar on the side of her head.

In a flashback scene, a car swerves to miss a cow that is walking across a road, the car spins a few times and slams into a tree, we hear that the driver suffered a few broken ribs, but that the passenger suffered brain damage (we see the accident a few times and see photos of the crumpled car in a newspaper article).

A man punches and kicks a man several times, a woman hits the man repeatedly with a bat on the back and legs, then chases him and hits him repeatedly. (played for laughs)

A man has a large bloody wound on his side (we hear that a shark bit him), and another man stitches him up (the wound opens up and bleeds in a few scenes showing a bloody spot on the man's shirt once).

A car runs over a penguin in the road (he's dusty but appears uninjured. Played for laughs.

Two men threaten a man, one of them jumps toward him, he tosses him on the ground and holds him there.

A man pretends to be getting shocked by a battery jumper cable, and a woman screams and appears distraught when she tells him that that's how her grandfather died (it's a joke).

In the background of one scene, we briefly see a dead man (his skin is tinged blue) on a slab in a morgue and another in the distance with a toe tag.


2 obscene hand gestures, 3 sexual references, 14 scatological terms, 18 anatomical terms, 16 mild obscenities, 3 religious exclamations


References to drugs and alcohol.

It is implied that one character is on steroids (we never see him do it, but the characters talk/joke about it frequently)

Alcohol is present in a few scenes.

The scene with the accident is intense and kind of hard to watch.

Many emotional scenes with Lucy (ie when she finds out about her condition)

While it is a comedy, there are some darker scenes to the movie, though nothing too disturbing.

Rated PG-13 on appeal for crude sexual humor and drug references (re-rating on appeal)
