Trying to get to a meeting, Chris darts across the road, only to have a car hit him. He goes up on the hood, breaking the windshield and losing a shoe in the process, but is otherwise okay. There is a scene where Chris makes a blood donation and blood is seen filling a tube. (spoilers) Jaden Smith let his action figure fall in the street and lost him. This is an emotional scene(spoilers)

2 "s" words, 7 asses (3 used with "hole," including 1 said as "A-hole"), 4 hells, 3 d**ns and 2 S.O.B.s.

1 f--k(used by Jaden Smith's Character, but he is quickly corrected)

Linda smokes at least 3 times, while a number of miscellaneous characters smoke in a number of scenes.

Most of the film can be quite emotional and intense.

The two main characters are forced out of their apartment and have no choice but to stay overnight in the public toilets at a subway. This scene can be quite emotional and intense.

Chris gets into a subway car, but his hand and his portable bone density machine end up stuck outside the train's door as the train takes off (forcing him to drop the machine and it bounces down the platform).

This movie probably would've gotten a PG rating if it weren't for that 1 use of the F word, and the one that is written on a building.
