Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

A man and woman kiss passionately, grope one another and begin to pull each other's clothes off; no nudity is seen, and we see them in bed under the covers and we hear sexual sounds.

A brief 7-8 second scene where we see a couple having sex in 3 positions in a comical way, no nudity however.

In another scene we see a woman kneeling before a man and performing oral sex on him (we do not see the actual act, but we see the man's reaction and we see her head moving).

[Nudity] We see a man's bare chest as he takes a shower, he steps out of the shower with towel tied around his waist, the towel drops and he is seen fully nude, including his genitals. This scene lasts for 2 to 3 minutes, the shots of nudity are flashes.

In several scenes we see a man and woman lying nude in bed (the covers are pulled over them and it is implied that they have just had sex).

[Nudity] In one scene we see a blonde female on top of a man having sex with him. Her breasts are visible for 3 seconds.

A man teaches another man how to have sex on a public beach (their clothes are on; we see them acting out several sexual positions and making sounds as if having sex) using large Chess pieces.

[Nudity] We see several photos of women exposing their bare breasts posted on a wall in a men's bathroom, and we see men looking at the photos as they urinate (we do not see the men urinate, but see them standing at the urinals). A single photo from the wall is used towards the end of the film.

[Nudity] We see a naked man hug a woman (the woman is fully dressed and we see the man's bare buttocks).

In several scenes we see a man dancing, winding, gyrating and pumping his pelvis and we also see the man dance with his legs open emulating sexual positions.

We see a man kiss another man on the lips.

A man says, "put your P in a V" and "B your L on some Ts" (the actual words are not used).

A man accuses a woman of "faking her orgasm."

We see a man with coral sticking out of his leg, a gush of blood comes out of the wound, and another man faints at the sight.

We see a man stab and kill a pig with a large knife and then we see that pig strapped to a stake ready to be roasted for a party (we do not see any blood, but we hear the pig squealing loudly and hear the impact; and we also see the man's distressed face since he does not enjoy the act).

A man is seen with several bruises on his face after getting into a fight with another man (we do not see this fight).

A man and woman jump off a cliff into water, the man hits a few rocks as he falls and he says that he thought the woman was trying to kill herself.

In several scenes we see dead bodies lying in a morgue (the bodies are covered, but we see feet with tags on the big toe).
