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

A woman in a movie kisses a man, they remove their clothing (we see her bare breasts, abdomen and buttocks), and the man leans her over a counter and thrusts from behind; the woman's boyfriend, who's watching the movie with her, becomes visibly upset.

We see a topless woman from a distance through a window and her bare breasts are briefly visible; she kisses a man while leaning over him and and appears to move toward his crotch, but it is not clear.

In one scene, a woman refers to the excitement she got from uncovering a clue as "orgasmic".

Violence & Gore

A dead man is seen with a bullet hole in his head.

A man has a few bloody cuts on his face after a car accident. He pulls a shard of glass out of his forehead.

A man is shot in the back or the leg (we do not see a wound); the two men then fight with punches, and one is struck and falls to the floor where the other man kicks him in the head a couple of times (he is shown lying unconscious).

A man is slammed against a wall hit on the head a few times (no injuries seen).

A man is hit with a baseball bat a couple of times before he fights back and knocks the attacker unconscious, another man comes out and is hit a few times by the former.

A man holds an inebriated man under water in a bathtub while another man questions him.

A tarp is pulled off a shooting victim and we see a bloody patch on his chest and some blood on his face.

We see a man with a slightly bloody ear and a bloody wound on his abdomen after a fight.


64 uses of 'fuck', 19 of 'shit', 6 of 'asshole', 4 of 'son of a bitch', 2 of 'b-tch', and 1 of 'fag'.

Some drinking. A woman smokes a cigarette briefly.

Some of the violence may be intense.
