The world presented in the film depicts that everybody stops aging when turning 25. Most characters looks that age, despise having even centuries alive. This leads to several situations in which a character's age is misleading, even for casual conversations or flirting.

A man and a woman are playing strip poker on a bed. The woman removes her jacket revealing her bra. The two then kiss and thrust upon the bed, though they are both fully clothed. The woman stands up and is shown wearing a thong.

Several women wear skimpy outfits, even in casual situations.

A man undresses on a beach. We see his bare chest and back.

Two women try to convince one single man to take both of them with him of of a tavern.

A man and a woman kiss in a car .

A man and a woman kiss in many scenes. .

A man attempts to touch a woman's hip, speaking of "taking her". She hits his hand and he takes it from her. A woman's breasts are very briefly seen when they go skinny dipping, you have to look very closely to see.


Lifespan time is used as currency. People die when their countdown clocks hit 0. When someone's clock hit 0, victims look as if they were stricken by a sudden heart attack - a gasp, a grimace, and they're gone. Extremely sudden. No possible way to prolong life after that is shown. Some main characters die in this fashion...

Deceased people are shown in the streets and alleys getting little to no notice. No blood or violence shown on them. Just dead out of lack of "time" in their clocks, and nobody cares.

A man is suddenly hit by a bathroom door, knocking him down.

A man and a woman get into a serious car accident, they survive with just a couple minor bruises.

Various characters are threatened with guns and/or shot. One man is shot in the back of the head -no blood is visible. A character is shot in the shoulder -a bit of blood is shown.

A handful of folks "fight" for one another's time, in what looks as a willpower (arm wrestling) contest. The loser ends up dead. This is shown and mentioned in several scenes.


One use of the 'f' word, 3 instances of the 's' word, and other cursing too.

Justin Timberlake says to himself: (Un-F******-Believable!).

Will's rich friend shares a flask of something with him. It's a very strong, unidentified drink that improves its flavour after several shots.

When Will comes into some unexpected time, he gives his best friend a decade. Some short instances of wine and champagne drinking in party-like enviroments.

The overall film is intense due the constant peril in even the most common situation just because of lack of lifespan.

Rated PG-13 for violence, some sexualty and partial nudity, and strong language
