We see a woman having sex with her boyfriend from quite some distance in a few shots. She is seen thrusting against him.

A woman kisses a bare-chested man in a shower, then they start to make love on a bed before an interruption. We see her back and a side-breast.

In an attempt to reach his fiance, a man is punched with a bit of blood briefly seen. There are a couple of cockfights.

26 uses of 'fuck', 4 of 'shit', 2 of 'dick' (nonsexual), and 1 of 'whore' and 'prick'.

Two characters shortly use an eyedrop drug, and we see a hallucination.

Drinking is semi-frequent, smoking is intermittent.

Cock fights might disturb some animal lovers. Nothing really intense or scary about The Rum Diary
