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.

Sex & Nudity


We see Dave in just his briefs as he applies tanning lotion to Katie's bare back (she's in just her panties and folds her arms to cover her bare breasts).

Dave makes out with Katie, while Todd makes out with another girl.

Dave and Katie go to a back alley where they start making out. Her legs then go up around him and they have standing sex (movement and sounds, but no skin shown).

Dave and Katie sit on a bed and kiss, with him briefly groping her clothed breasts.

Dave has various posters in his bedroom of scantily clad women (bikini, another showing a bare back, etc.).

A large billboard shows a female model reclining in skimpy lingerie.

Violence & Gore


A teen boy enters an apartment where several men are sitting using drugs, he threatens one of the men and tasers him on the forehead (he thrashes and falls to his knees), two other men hold the teen while the tasered man recovers, pulls a large knife and approaches the teen in a threatening manner, but the man is stabbed through the back (we see a bloody sword pierce through his chest and he falls dead) and several other men are attacked and killed by an 11-year-old girl swinging a samurai sword: we see one man's leg cut off, a couple of men are stabbed in the head, a knife is thrown at another man, she chases a woman and stabs her through a door (we see the blade point poke through the door on the outside and blood trickles down) and one man is shot in the head (there's blood spraying with every death).

A man is put into a large chamber, we are told it's like a microwave oven used to dry lumber, it is turned on, we hear whirring, see the man look pained, and he explodes and sprays blood and tissue over the chamber window.

A teen boy interrupts two men who are breaking into a car, they threaten him, he fights with them using two large sticks, they punch him and one stabs him in the stomach (we hear a crunch and see blood); he stumbles across a road and is then struck by a car and thrown, and he lands hard on the road while the car speeds away (the teen is very bloody and bruised in an ambulance taking him to the hospital and he's scarred later, after recovery).

A man kicks an 11-year-old girl in the face (we see her bloody nose), he throws her around and she crashes into items in the room, she punches him and bites his neck and he tries to strangle her; she then slashes his arms with a letter opener, he punches her in the face twice more and she lies still on a collapsed table.

A man is handcuffed to a car's steering wheel and the car is shown inside a large crushing device; the car is then crushed while the man yells and we see a splatter of blood on the windshield.

An 11-year-old girl shot a man through the cheek (blood and tissue spray) and the bullet strikes another man who's behind him, and several other men are shot, stabbed and slashed with swords and guns (blood pools).

An 11-year-old girl kills many armed men by shooting at them while flipping and jumping; blood sprays from wounds.

An 11-year-old girl kills many men in a warehouse mostly by shooting them and throwing knives; the scene takes place mostly in the dark and she uses infrared goggles and a strobe light to hit her target (some blood).

A man attacks several men using guns and knives and slashes and shoots them all (we see blood spraying and pooling).

A man is shot in the head and blood spurts.

A man and a teen boy are tied to chairs while other men with brass knuckles and baseball bats beat them (they grunt in pain and blood spurts).

A man with a bruised face and handcuffed to a chair is threatened by another man with a large long handled pruner (the blades are around one his fingers); we hear a clipping sound, the man is screams (implying that his finger was cut off) and then a gunshot is heard (we do not see the result).

A man falls back and dies after being struck by two large knives.

A man punches and kicks another man in the head then shoots him while he is on the ground; a man shoots a man in the back as he runs away (blood spurts).

A man tied into a chair is slowly engulfed in flames when a fire is lit under his chair.

A teen appears outside a high-rise apartment building hovering with a jetpack that has two Gatling guns attached; he opens fire while moving horizontally, breaking many windows and mowing down many men.

Several men chase another man, they catch him and they punch and kick him several times (his head and face is a little bloody); a teen boy joins the fight, kicking and punching and the attackers start punching and kicking him; one man draws a knife and threatens the teen but they are interrupted by the sound of sirens.

Many men are seen dead inside a flaming building. One has a slit throat with blood on it, others have bloody gunshot or knife wounds.

We briefly see the full body X-ray of a teen boy that shows many metal rod implants and screws used to repair numerous broken bones.



Strong Language, R Level: 4 uses of "pussy", 2 uses of "Goddamn" and 86 "f" words (8 used with "mother," while two are used sexually as is the term "laid")

A thug smokes what looks like a joint.

Seeing some thugs trying to steal a car, Dave tries to intervene in superhero mode. One of the thugs responds, "This motherfucker is obviously high."

We hear that Katie volunteers at a needle exchange program.

We see many people doing drugs (pot, etc.) in an apartment where liquor is also present.

Chris smokes a joint while driving, saying that weed takes the edge off. He offers that to Dave who declines.


Scenes listed under "Violence" and Gore" may be disturbing to younger viewers and/or those with low tolerance levels for such material, though most of it is played to varying degrees of black comedy.

One of Frank's men is accused of selling coke to some Russians and then taking the money. He claims he's innocent, but no one believes him, and another goon holds a bolt cutter around one of his fingers. We then hear a snip and a yell, but don't see the actual cut.

A goon who's in trouble with Frank's team is placed inside a large, walk-in, industrial microwave. That's then turned on, the man starts to react, and we then see a large blood splatter on the window.

We see a man in a car that's positioned in a car crusher being controlled by Damon and Mindy. She then activates it and the device slowly starts to crush the car and the man (we see a brief burst of blood onto the windows during this).

Frank kicks and punches a man. When a bystander passes by, Frank shoots him in the back twice, and then shoots the man he was attacking in the head.

Frank's masked goons broadcast the beating and intended murder of Damon and Dave (who are shackled to chairs). They start with brass knuckles, followed by batons and then a baseball bat. The goons then hit the two simultaneously with all of the above, blood is seen on their mouths. They then pour kerosene around them, and slowly set Damon on fire before they are interrupted.

For those with vertigo or related height issues, we see an overhead, aerial view looking straight down from atop a tall building.

Overall: 39/50, 14+
