Rating: 9/10

A lot of sexual references and jokes. Most of the jokes are one liners.

Some of the jokes in the stand-up scenes include sexual references.

You can briefly see a man having sex with a woman in two scenes. The first scene they are both shown topless (her breasts are seen) with the woman on top of him and thrusting. The second time, the nudity is covered up by pillows.

A man accuses his wife of cheating on him with George.

George frequently asks Ira to see his penis and makes jokes about his penis very often.

Rating: 2/10

There is a brief although comic fight scene in which a character is seen with a bloody face.

Rating: 10/10

Lots of blasphemy, 154 uses of the 'f' word, another 70 uses of the 's' word, 35 uses of the crass word 'cock,' about 50 uses of the 'd' word and hell. Sexual language is quite strong in the standup scenes.

Rating: 6/10

Characters drink quite a bit, but not really to excess, although it seems to amplify bad behavior among the characters.

There is references to tobacco.

Mark briefly smokes pot from a bowl pipe.

Rating: 6/10

Some people might be frightened when Clarke beats up George.

The whole movie is about George getting cancer. Later in the movie, he gets better.

There is some emotional moments that have to do with the cancer that George has.

Some people might be frightened when George asks Ira to kill him.

This is not your average Judd Apatow movie (i.e. Superbad, The 40 Year Old Virgin). This is a serious movie that has a comedian cracking very funny jokes every once in a while. One minute you're watching a hardcore drama, the next you're laughing hysterically. ________________________________________________________________________________________

TOTAL EXPLICIT CONTENT: 33/50 (66% of the film).
