A man's bare buttocks is seen for a non-sexual seven seconds.

A man is shown waking up in a room full of naked people. It is implied that an orgy took place the night before. A lot of nudity is shown in this scene including breasts, vulva, buttocks, and an extreme close-up of a penis in a shot lasting about ten seconds.

Around three montages that depict the main character being sexually promiscuous, including adultery. Thrusting and bare breasts are shown in each instance.

A woman lays in bed with a man where she graphically talks her lust for him. (what she talks about varies between different cuts of the film)

A man forces his friend to "switch girls" with him even when informed that the girl is his friend's wife. This is played for laughs.

A man says "and you slept with me too, and I've had confused feelings about that for ten years now!" implying that his friend sodomized him when he was drunk/high. Played for laughs.

A montage is shown depicting inter-gender friends in many sexual innuendo situations. (Not that graphic)

Two songs have explicit lyrics involving sex.


A young boy accidentally cuts his brother in half with a machete. This is played for laughs and not that graphic.

A man gets high on an unknown substance and goes on a rampage, flipping cars, running from cops, etc. Again, played for laughs.

A running gag is that whenever Dewey gets upset, he violently rips a sink out of the wall (parodying when angry characters randomly destroy things in films).

A man reveals to his son that he has been planning to kill him his whole life, and then proceeds to challenge his son to fight with machetes. He fights with his son but then accidentally cuts himself in half. Not that graphic and played for laughs.

In a montage, we see a man hold a switchblade up to another man's throat. In the same montage, a man uses another man as a human shield, who then gets blown to bits by unknown assailants. The man then emerges from behind his human shield and fires a revolver at them. In the same montage, a father holds a revolver on his son.

Two men have a heart attack at the end.


Very strong language, including many uses of "fuck", "asshole", "shit", and milder profanity. A lot of sexual dialogue. It varies depending on the cut of the film.


A lot of drug and alcohol use and abuse throughout.

Characters smoke tobacco products and drink alcohol casually throughout.

A man stumbles upon a group of people smoking marijuana. He reluctantly joins them. Drug use shown.

A man walks into a bathroom where his friend is snorting cocaine. He again reluctantly joins him.

Later on, the same man walks into a different bathroom and finds his friend doing pills. They are described as "uppers and downers".

A man tries to convince his wife to let him join a group of men who are doing acid. He describes being addicted to virtually every drug besides LSD.

A group of men do LSD and then hallucinate via an animated sequence.

A man does an unknown pill and goes on a rampage.


The scene in which Dewey cuts his brother in half may be upsetting to some.

The neglect and abuse Dewey suffers from his father may be upsetting to victims of neglect.

Lots of relationship stress and tension from characters addicted to drugs.

Viewers may become upset when Dewey dies.

32/50 - Recommended for 16+

Rated R for sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and language
