Sex & Nudity

A woman wears a tight outfit, which shows cleavage. Two men make a sexual remark and then lead her to a cell where an alien sticks his long tongue into her mouth and they start to kiss. The tongue is seen poking in her cheek.

Agent O reminds Agent X that he has a meeting with the Viagrans, who have "a revolutionary new pill". This is said almost in the background, and may be missed.

Some other mild sexual remarks are made throughout the movie.

Violence & Gore

A security guard sticks his hand inside a cake and a crab-like alien crawls out of it and shoots the man in the head with a spike (the man falls dead) and then shoots another guard in the head (he falls dead too); an alien shoots spikes from the palm of his hand and several guards are struck and pinned to walls or struck in the head (blood dribbles out of the wound sites).

An alien shoots a huge hole in a space-based prison compound wall, a roomful of guards are sucked out through the hole, a woman is pulled toward the hole and the alien (he sprouts claw-like tendrils on his feet that grab onto the floor) grabs her arm but then lets her go.

A man is shot in the chest with a spike and we see him dead on the ground with blood on the wound.

A woman is struck in the head with a spike and she falls to the ground dead (the spike and a bit of blood on the wound are shown).

A man and an alien fight, the alien shoots three spikes into the man's shoulders and chest, he falls to his knees and is shown OK moments later.

An alien shoots another alien in the head with a spike.

A man shoots at a hose that sprays freezing liquid onto an alien's arm, the arm snaps off and the alien falls to the ground below

A man is zapped and he thrashes and then falls to the floor.

A huge alien fish flops toward a man and bites down on his legs (the man uses a kitchen tray to brace the alien's mouth open), the man reaches inside the alien and pulls out its heart (the heart still beats in the man's hand) and the alien falls over dead.

An alien grabs a man and throws him off tall scaffolding surrounding a rocket, the man grabs onto a hose and gets back onto the scaffolding, the man shoots at the alien, and the man falls off a ledge and his foot is pinned.

Two men shoot several aliens and they splatter into bits and goo, and other aliens shoot at the men (they are not harmed).

A man shoots an alien and it explodes into matter and goo.

An alien grabs a man's arm using its long green tongue and the man shoots it (it splatters into bits of matter and goo).

A man pulls an alien's head off, holds the severed head, uses it as a bowling ball, drops it in a polishing bag and shakes it around.

A man holds a gun to another man's face.

We see huge aliens (they look like jellyfish) hovering in the air over cities and causing destruction (one pulls the Eiffel Tower over).

A man slams an alien in the head several times using a frying pan, his head flattens and he falls to the floor.

An alien is grabbed by another alien and taken away on a motorcycle while being chased by two men on gyro-cycles; a semi-truck crashes into a bus and it jackknifes blocking a road and causing the motorcycle to skid under it and crash into a fence on the other side (it bursts into flames and we see the debris, but the driver is not there).

A man slaps an alien in the face using a small alien several times.

A man punches another man in the face twice.

A fish with a huge head is on a stove top (it's an alien).

A man climbs out onto a ledge on a very tall building and jumps off; he passes another man jumping from a tall building (at the time of the stock market crash). He stops falling at about a foot off the ground.

A woman slaps a man in the face.


2 sexual references, 6 scatological terms, 8 anatomical terms 4 religious misuses (the name of Jesus), and 17 milder obscenities.

Sh--, S.O.B, ass, etc are used extensively throughout the entire film.

A bottle of alcohol and a poured glass is shown on a table next to a man (who is not seen drinking).

Party guests are shown drinking alcohol, people are shown drinking alcohol at a bar.

An alien makes a comment about "his parents had an extra glass of wine that night."

An alien (the villain of the film) that is seen throughout has jagged and sharp teeth, a very long tongue, and an opening in the palm of his hand where a small crab-like creature that shoots spikes resides; the alien's eyebrows and feet sprout tendril-like appendages, he is missing an arm from the elbow down.

Almost all the alien characters in the movie are grotesque and creepy, with several arms, legs, claws, misshapen heads and so on. There are scores of such aliens, and while it is intended to be funny, young viewers may find them disturbing.

At the end of the movie there is a scene where Boris sheds his human body and explodes into a completely alien form, this scene could be scary for very young children.
