The main character often speaks of women in misogynistic, sexually charged terms due to heartbreak and a lack of sleep as a result (his girlfriend cheated on him and dumped him.)

We see a flashback to him having sex with a prostitute from behind (his bare buttocks are visible) while taking pictures and chain-smoking. He drops the pictures off at his ex-girlfriend's house.

A man randomly kisses a woman in a restaurant while he goes to the restroom.

A man and woman climb through a window to get into a room, and the curtain causes them to land on top of each other. He tries to kiss her and caress her, but she refuses. Later, she masturbates in the same place (you see her lower her pants and move her hand down, with some brief movement, moaning and expressions of pleasure before it cuts to black.)

You see a man attempting to have sex with a woman and thrusting, but failing to achieve a climax, he pulls out and cries.

The man has sex with a woman. You see them undressing each other from the waist down, but no nudity is visible and he pushes her against a wall while thrusting into her, with heavy breathing but him putting his hand over her mouth as she moans so nobody hears, and then they climax.

You see a man in bed with his girlfriend, after implied sex.

A man is accidentally shot at

A man belittles and threatens to kill a woman. When he nervously walks back and apologizes, she punches him in the face.

Dozens of uses of the f-bomb, along with other obscenities, by the main character.

Some moderate social drinking, and the main character chain-smokes.

Rated R for some strong sexuality and pervasive language
Australia:MA15+ (2011) / Canada:18A (Ontario) / Portugal:M/12 / USA:R (certificate #45711)
