Sex & Nudity

6/10

This movie has a number of suggestive scenes and the dialogue contains a lot of sex jokes.

A man and a woman kiss passionately on bed and a fantasy/childrens'-cartoon style sequence plays, implying sex.

A man gets a very obvious erection in his pants for an extended sequence. A woman points it out and he tries to "walk the situation off" in his office.

Many sexual jokes, some quite crude.

On character says he wants to slather BBQ sauce on another character's rear end

A man says he wants to be friends with a woman's butt

A woman is wearing only an apron (side boob visable)

A man wears tighty-whitey underwear and thrusts his crotch at a woman to distract her

A man invites a woman to a "party in his pants" (and then another man)

Violence & Gore

4/10

All violence (even though some of it may sound gruesome) is played for laughs.

A bear bites off a man's arm. No blood.

You see a few news-casting teams hitting each other with cameras and microphones on the street. A guy gets stabbed (not bloody), a guy is on fire and a guy's arm is chopped off (with the stub clearly visible).

Brick throws a trident and kills man with it (he should probably lay low for a while)

Woman throws a typewriter at a man, it hits him in the head.

A woman rips off a TV antenna and repeatedly hits a man with it.

A woman sprays mace in a man's eyes. He later sprays it in his own eyes by accident

Profanity

5/10

1 F-word, 5 shits, 5 asses, whore, bitch and hell and damn. The unrated version has 6 F-words, all within one scene.

2/10

Almost all of the characters in the movie smoke.

The news team drinks and smokes before every broadcast.

A character becomes an alcoholic for a short period of time.

1/10

Although the scene with the dog being thrown into the water under a bridge is meant to be comical, it could upset some viewers (animal lovers specifically). But the dog is revealed to be alive later in the film

While there's no nudity or detailed sex, there's a pretty big amount of verbal sexual humor. Some might be offended by frequent instances of sexism. 1970s sexism is a prominent theme in this movie.
