Sex & Nudity


A woman squirts water around a mans crotch and sexually harasses him and other patients throughout. There are four photos depicting a woman raping an unconscious man. A woman masturbates in her bathtub.

In an office environment, a woman tries to seduce an engaged man to have sex with her before he gets married. Her panties and sides of breasts are visible. No actual nudity is shown.

[Nudity, 1 sec] In an office, a man has sex with multiple prostitutes and the breasts of 1 are briefly shown but hard to see because of the lighting.

A man has sex with two different women (implied). One of these woman he was seduced by because she ate 3 penis shaped foods.

There are many sexual jokes, puns, and sexual slang used throughout the entire movie. The language can be awfully quite disturbing, could be taken as quite vulgar and obscene.

Kurt sometimes crudely and sexually talks about woman and sex.

Throughout some other sexual references, however the references are not that bad. Just the sexual harassment that is present in an office environment.

Violence & Gore


A man has a daydream about grabbing his boss, and dragging him through an office building and throwing him out a window. He smashes into a car, dies on impact, and everyone in the building congratulates him.

There is an intense car chase scene involving a lot of screaming.

A man shoots another man in the chest and blood sprays and splatters all over the door behind him. He is then shot again.

A man has an allergic reaction to peanuts and almost dies from it.

A man threatens three other men with a pistol and then tries to frame them by shooting himself in the leg (not seen).



Lots of blasphemy, and between 110-120 uses of the 'f' word. Other profanity is used a lot as well, such as 'shit' and 'damn'. There is crass language such as "ass". Sexual slang such as "dick" and "pussy" are thrown around.A man is referred to as "Mothafucka Jones" and he's called that every time he's seen.


A man is addicted to cocaine and is seen and heard snorting it several times in the movie.

Two men accidentally inhale some cocaine and go crazy from a contact high.

Cocaine is the only drug used in the film, but in some scenes it is used heavily.


The car chase scene can be a little intense, but it is mostly played for humor.

The aforementioned murder scene is a bit disturbing and is the darkest scene in the film.

In one scene, a cat suddenly jumps on a man's shoulder. It is startling but played for laughs.

33/50 - Recommended for 16+ due to throughout and crude sexual content, some nudity, pervasive language and drug content.
