Sex & Nudity

  • There is a fairly in-depth discussion of how males with spinal cord injuries have sex. Some explicit language and descriptions of sexual acts.
  • There are a couple brief clips from an instructional video meant to show how sex can be performed by men with limited mobility. There is brief nudity, including a woman's backside and breasts. The nudity is in a sexual context but there is no sex performed or simulated in the video.
  • The men discuss their sex lives, including re-learning how to masturbate, how to pick up women for sex, and teasing of one player for dislike of "big tits."

Violence & Gore

  • The men play wheelchair rugby; they try to stop the opposing player by ramming their wheelchair into the opposing player's chair. Sometimes this is a violent hit and the player is toppled.
  • One character is seen experiencing a life-threatening medical crisis in a hospital.

Profanity

  • Lots of adult language is used, including the f-word many times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The subjects are shown casually drinking beer at a few points in the movie.
  • There is brief scene in a club which shows men and women drinking and smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Bob describes having lost all four limbs to a sudden childhood illness; this clearly is a frightening idea to the children he explains it to. The other players also describe the mishaps that left them paralyzed.

  • The animosity between the American team and Joe Soares is often very intensely out in the open.
  • The game itself is extremely intense and rough.
