The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

5/10

A scene features the flashback of when a man discovered his wife was cheating on him. We see (from the man's point of view) clothes strewn about the floor of his house, including his wife's panties. He then looks into the bathroom, and we see his wife in the shower, nude, her back to the camera. Nudity is obscured by the shower curtain, except for bare buttocks, which are just barely not blurred enough by the curtain. We see her nipples in 0.5 seconds.

These flashbacks occur when the main character is talking to his therapist, and again when the main character is fighting with his parents.

There is a scene where the camera focuses on a woman's quite revealing cleavage.

A woman dances with a man. She's in tight, cleavage and midriff revealing outfits. After one practice, He watches her as she changes; we see her bare upper back.

During one dance, the man tries to lift the woman into the air, but the trick fails and her crotch rubs directly against his face for a few seconds (played for comedy).

Dancers at a competition wear tight and extremely revealing outfits, one of them just barely covering a woman's breasts.

Violence & Gore

4/10

A man nearly beats another man to death. We're told, and in flashback we see snippets of the attack: kicks and punches and blood. At one point it looks like the man is being choked. We see briefly a blood embed to the wall.

A man struggles with his anger and violent impulses throughout the film. He pulls a magazine rack down in his counselor's waiting room. Nearly unhinged, he rips his house apart, looking for his old wedding tape. He accidentally strikes his mother and gets into a fistfight with his dad. The next morning both have bruises on their faces.

When a man and a woman get into a verbal fight, the woman screams that the man assaulted her, a lie that attracts the attention of some would-be defenders and a police officer.

A few fans get into a scrum with the miscreants prior to a game.

A man throws a book out through a closed window.

A woman slaps a man.

Profanity

8/10

Over 70 uses of the word 'f**k'. One use of 'c**ksucker'. Other curses include 'a**,' 'b**ch,' 'd**n', 'a**hole'. 'd*cks', 'sh*t', 'slut' and 'whore'

3/10

Pat at first refuses to take his medication, but after the fight with his dad, rethinks and is seen taking them once. At the end of the movie, he tells Nikki that he is still on medication.

He and Tiffany jokingly discuss the effects of different psychiatric medications, such as Lithium, Abilify, Xanax and Clonazepam, among others.

Tiffany downs two vodkas, and is also seen taking several swigs from a beer bottle.

Danny says he was put in the mental institution for crystal meth and alcohol abuse.

5/10

Pat's outbursts can be upsetting, but are usually "toned down" with some sort of comic relief.

Total explicit content: 25/50. Nothing too much but the language, just like other Russell's films.

Recommended MPAA Rating: R for language,some violence and brief sexual content.
