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 man asks his teen son if the men who robbed and stabbed him also sexually assaulted him since when he was found he was nude (he states that he was not).

A teen boy is asked 'if he's gay?' by several students in one scene.

A teen boy and girl kiss while sitting on a bed then fall onto the bed as the scene cuts. Sex is implied.

Violence & Gore

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.

Whilst is is violent and bloody it has a comedic effect by the violence being unreal.

A thug smokes what looks like a joint.

One of Frank's men is accused of selling coke to some Russians and then taking the money.

Damon explains to Mindy that his training of her will prepare her for dealing with any potential "junkie asshole."

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.

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

[spoiler]Dave and Chris arrive at Frank's lumber factory that's now fully ablaze. Chris and then Dave rush in, with both running about the flames and smoke, looking for anyone to rescue. They find a few dead men, while Dave is blown backwards by a fiery explosion when he opens a door. Chris then gets Dave out of warehouse. [spoiler]
