Sex & Nudity

Several scenes take place in a brothel, and there are multiple jokes about one of the characters needing to take Viagra to "make things work" and another man who comes in and "makes it work" on the first try. (Nothing graphic shown, but multiple references to prostitution and other sexual puns)

Val and Doc steal a sports car and find a nude women tied up in the back, who tells them she was raped and thrown in the back of the car (presumably to be killed.). The two men then go and kill 2 of the men then have the woman brutalize the other 3 with a baseball bat before the cops show up. She hits a man in the crotch, then the scene cuts out.

Violence & Gore

The main theme of the movie is that Val has killed his mob boss's son (wether by accident or on purpose, it is never revealed) and that the boss wants Doc (Val's best friend) to kill him.

Even with a violent theme, the violence is rather tame. There is one scene where the two friendshelp a rape victim get revenge

The end of the movie is a massive shoot out, with several of the boss's men getting killed, somewhat graphically


Almost non stop graphic profanities including sexual jokes and references to prostitution.

Several scenes at bars with characters smoking and drinking.

One character crushes up pills and snorts them cocaine style.
