Sex & Nudity

We see a bare-breasted woman on one or two magazines briefly.

A man is shown washing his hands in a restaurant bathroom. A woman jumps out from a stall to surprise the man. She says that this is their second date even though they've only spoken once and she is married. The woman pulls the man's pants down and says this will only take a second. She puts her right leg on the sink and they have sex. The woman makes comic yelling sounds while the man groans. There is some thrusting and then they climax. The woman pulls her pants back up and so does the man. She says they just had sex and she loves him. She then goes to the urinal implying that she is washing herself from the sex. The scene ends and sex lasts about 15-20 seconds.

A man goes into a room to meet a woman at a dinner party. The man and the woman kiss and then have anal sex. We see them thrusting slowly and then they accidentally fall into a door where the dinner party is. The man says that he was just massaging the woman and they have sex again. The same thing happens 1 or 2 more times. We then see the dinner and they hear the two having sex and wonder what the sound is. A man at the table says it could be a ghost.

A man watches a TV screen with a woman in a gym uniform. The man puts his hand in his pants implying he's about to masturbate and the scene ends.

Man and Woman fall onto bed and woman hangs over the man. They kiss, implying sex briefly before the scene cuts.

A woman in a small dress made of leaves and a man in centaur form briefly, but passionately kiss in a fantasy.

Another fantasy where a man dressed as a lumberjack walks into a woman's house and rips off her clothes, revealing corset type dress. They kiss briefly.

Some people tauntingly chant that a male protagonist has a "mangina". Testicles are briefly talked about.

Sexual lyrics in a rap song, similar to others of the same genre.

Violence & Gore

The brothers are beaten by school kids, and forced to lick dog poop. They are briefly seen bruised and a bit bloody after.

The brothers pay back the school kids, bloodlessly hitting them (no injuries shown).

An unsympathetic character is hit in the face, he is briefly seen with a tiny bloody nose.

A bunk bed falls on a man by accident. He only has a cut afterwards (brief).

The two brothers get into a comic scuffle.


47 uses of 'fuck', 27 of 'shit', 8 of 'ass' (1 used sexually), 7 of 'dick' (mostly nonsexual), and 1 of 'skank hooker', 'pussy', and 'asshole'. Also a rap video titled 'Boats and Hoes' is shown and later referenced (several uses of 'hoes').

A few drug references. No drug use.

People drink wine socially in a few scenes. Beer is seen once or twice. No smoking.

Nothing is meant to be intense. Steven Seagal is briefly shown shooting/beating people in an action movie.
