Sex & Nudity

Sex & Nudity: 2/10

A dog masturbates by rubbing his genitals.

A rubbing noise is heard as a man's arm is seen moving up and down rapidly, implying that he is masturbating while in the passenger seat of a car; it appears that another man in the car gets a quick look at the man's genitals (no nudity is shown).

A man asks another man if he had "exchanged body fluids" with a woman, and describes the body fluids as "urine turning white." A man asks another man when he had lost his virginity and volunteers that he lost his own at age 9. A man tells another man he should have masturbated because he did, and it allowed him to sleep well

On two occasions, a small portion of the upper part of a man's bare behind is visible when he bends over and his pants pull down slightly. We see a portion of a man's stomach as he raises his arms and his shirt lifts, and his bare stomach presses against another man's face. A woman wears an open, short robe over a pair of short shorts and T-shirt.

Violence & Gore

Violence & Gore: 5/10

An Air Marshall shoots Peter with a rubber bullet.

Peter punches a child in the stomach.

The handicapped toll booth operator beats Peter and Ethan with a stick. Peter is later shown spitting blood into a sink and bleeding from the nose.

Ethan falls asleep behind the wheel of their car and they go flying off of a ramp in a construction area and over a bridge on the highway causing a major car accident. Peter is later being released from the hospital with a broken arm.

Ethan attaches the trailer that Peter is in, when he is arrested in Mexico, and it becomes detatched from the truck and you see Peter flying around the inside of the trailer, slamming into the walls. He turns out O.K.

Peter slams Ethan's face on a car door.

Ethan shoots Peter in the leg with a pistol. You see the bullet hole in his leg and blood on his pants and his shirt.


Profanity: 9/10

About 43 F-words and its derivatives, 9 sexual references, 9 scatological terms, 7 anatomical terms, 3 mild obscenities, 1 derogatory term for homosexuals, exclamations ("what the eff," shoot, drat, holy Moses, jeepers creepers, crud), name- calling (imbecile, inappropriate, idiot, stupid, clown, hick, hillbilly, girl, handicapped hillbilly, DeBarge, pathological), 5 religious profanities, 12 religious exclamations.

Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 8/10

Ethan and Peter accidentally switch bags at the airport and the luggage checker finds a small pot pipe.

Ethan tells Peter that he has glaucoma and has to use his "medicine", which is medicinal marijuana.

Ethan and Peter go to a house to buy medicinal marijuana, and you see Ethan and two others smoking it in the kitchen and choosing which ones to buy.

Ethan smokes pot in the car and locks all of the windows, and when Peter wakes up they're both stoned and Peter starts seeing things and starts hallucinating. His dog "Sonny" is also stoned.

Frightening/Intense Scenes: 2/10

When Peter and Ethan get into the car accident it might be a little intense for yonger viewers.

When Ethan shoots Peter in the leg, although it is for comedic effect, it may be a little intense for younger viewers.

Total content estimate: 15/50. It is an extremely light R-rated film. If it wasn't for the brief profanity and drug content, it definately would be a PG-13 film.
