Mickey shows an interest towards Charlene, and gives her 'the eye'. Late on in the film the two are shown kissing passionately on a bed (both are in their underwear. You can partially see Charlene's nipples through her bra). They are interrupted by Mickey's family shouting outside.

Much of the violence takes place in the boxing ring. We see Mickey get pummeled repeatedly on several occasions, and he beats up quite a few opponents as well. The fights involve intense punches with realistic sound and imagery. These fights only induce cuts on the fighters (sometimes these are quite bloody)

Dicky and Mickey fight briefly, Mickey roughs up a man for disrespecting Charlene. Dicky has several violent outbursts that include hitting inanimate objects.

Language is the reason for the film being an R

Close to 40 f-words are interlaced with nearly 30 s-words and a bevy of other crudities, ranging from "ass" and "dick" to "damn" and "hell". "Jesus" and "God" are each used about 10 times. Obscene gestures are made.

Smoking is seen throughout the movie.

Alcohol is used and one character works in a bar.

The film is essentially about a family and the problems that plague them. A few verbal fights ensue.
