Sex & Nudity


Lot of sexual jokes.

A man jokes about some gambling book being illegal like "masturbating on a plane".

A driving man sees a woman and yells to her some kind of compliment, saying she has big boobs.

A woman reveals her breast to feed her baby. Two men look away but one stares.

A man says "I married a whore!"

A naked man jumps out of a trunk and attacks three men (his genitals are covered by his pubic hair).

We see a sex doll (one or two) in a bathtub.

A man is seen in a T-shirt and some underwear, pulled down (still covering his genitals) but we still see his bare buttock.

We also see the same man wearing only a T-shirt and he is about to go to the bathroom, and we slightly see his genitals.

A man, holding a baby, holds the baby's hand, letting it masturbate.

The end credits include lot of women revealing their breasts etc.

Violence & Gore


There is some violence in this movie, but it is almost always comedic and is not very intense.

Several men attack a car (with men and a baby in it).

Some kids get to electrocute three men.

A tiger attacks three men in a car (they are okay).

A man punches another man.

A naked man jumps out of a trunk and attacks three men with some iron pole.



80+ F-words and its derivatives, 26 sexual references, 2 obscene hand gestures (one delivered by a young girl), 44 scatological terms, 18 anatomical terms, 20 mild obscenities, 3 derogatory terms, 8 religious profanities, 17 religious exclamations.


We see a photo of a man snorting cocaine.

We are told that the main characters had a high level of Ruffelin in their blood. We later find out that one of the main characters put this in the drinks he and his friends drank near the start of the movie.

A man talks about taking numerous Ecstasy pills every day.

Four men drink beer, four men drink shots of alcohol in a several scenes.

We see glasses partially filled with alcohol scattered around a room.

People drink alcohol at a reception, people gambling in a casino are shown drinking alcohol.

Two men drink shots of alcohol.

A man, while drinking beer, asks to take a turn driving a car and says he drives really well when he's drunk. The driver says no because he's drinking. One of their friends then refer to the man that is drinking as always being their designated drunk driver. He does not get to drive the car.

A tiger is given a drug-laced steak (we hear it moan and fall on the floor), we do see three men put the drugs into the steak before giving it to the tiger.


Some of the violence may be intense.

When Alan sees the tiger in the bathroom, it may be funny, but it's also kind of shocking.

Total: 21/50
