A golden statue in a fountain features a woman minimally and strategically dressed. No nudity.

Walter races "a bunch of horny Chileans" to a bike. They all want to go to the strip club which one man indicates by making a motion with his hands as if to grab two breasts.

A drunk pilot mourns the loss of his girlfriend he cheated on.

Walter misinterprets the word 'Eruption' for 'Erection'.

A kiss.


Some mild action violence during some of Walter's daydreams, but it is all played for laughs.

A drunk man almost starts to attack Walter but stops just short of cutting him with a broken glass.


1 use of shit. 1 use of ass ("kick - ass). 2-3 uses of hell. The word di*k is said at the end once ("You don't have to be such a di*k"). 1 use of "slut". 1 use of "Jesus" as in "Jesus, Walter - wake up!"


Walter goes into a bar to get directions. One man drinks a large amount of beer and then proceeds to pilot a helicopter while drunk.

There is a brief and oblique reference to cinnamon rolls being like heroin.


Some of Walter's daydreams can be intense.

In one scene, Walter jumps from a helicopter and splashes into the ocean. And then, a shark appears who was going to eat Walter. But, Walter hits it with a briefcase and tries to escape from it. Eventually, a boat comes and rescues him. This scene might be intense and frightening.
