Gil, for his part, reports, "I like really cheap sex." Ernest Hemingway talks to him of how making "really good love" to a woman can cause him to lose his fear of death for a short while. Cole Porter's "Let's Fall in Love" does a little more than hint at sex with its famous "do it" lines.

Several women, including Inez, wear low-cut tops. Inez shows up one time wrapped in only a towel. (Gil pulls her down on his lap.) She and Gil kiss while lying together on their hotel bed. Gil kisses Adriana. While out walking, Gil and Adriana pass a number of prostitutes. (We see leg and garters.)

Inez says she slept with another man while Gil was on his nightly strolls, but it is unclear whether or not she means it, or is just trying to make him jealous. Adriana talks about how she once had a prostitute teach her and a roommate in high school some "tricks."

We hear of a soldier losing his hand to a grenade.

We see a character attempting suicide by standing near the edge of a river. She is stopped straight away. It can be seen as comical because of the irony of the reason she is doing it. It is known that this character does not commit suicide.

Minor swearing and obscenities (ex. crap or damn). Three mild blasphemies.

Alcohol is linked to elevated levels of sexual desire and decreased levels of sexual performance. Zelda Fitzgerald tells Gil, "I'll never be a great lyric writer; my talent lies in drinking." Gil, Inez, her parents and their friends drink at nearly every gathering. Gil is a bit upset at a wine tasting and starts slugging back the stuff two glasses at a time. In the 1920s, everybody tends to gravitate toward mixed drinks, shots and champagne.

People in both time periods smoke cigarettes. And when Gil tells Inez that he was mysteriously transported to the 1920s, she asks him, "What have you been smoking?" Gil encounters a stressed out Zelda and gives her a valium.


MPAA:
Rated PG-13 for some sexual references and smoking
