Mild references

A Mafiosi character shoots another man in the neck. Shots are fired and there is an impression of some blood. However, the scene is very dark, lacking in detail, and the action is brief.

A man hits his boss on the head with a telephone. Mostly comedic, although there is some blood on the man's face afterwards. The two point their guns at each other, but neither of them pull the trigger.

A woman smashes a picture frame on a man's face, with the glass shattering onto his forehead. A little bit of blood.

A character beats, kicks, and punches another man in his home. The man then appears to have a bleeding nose.

About 33 F-words and its derivatives, three sexual references, 29 scatological terms, six anatomical terms, eight mild obscenities.

A man snorts something from his hand, and a man takes a pill in a couple of scenes (presumably for his heart).

People are shown drinking wine, people in a nightclub are shown drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes, people are shown with drinks in their hands at a pool party, people drink wine and some cigarettes in a few scenes, people drink alcohol at a party and make a toast, men are shown smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol, a woman drinks alcohol at a bar and her husband tells her to stop, people are shown drinking champagne, and people drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes in an office celebration.

People are shown smoking cigarettes in several scenes in homes and offices and restaurants, a man smokes a cigar in several scenes, and we see an ashtray filled with cigarette butts.

Some fairly intense scenes, but most of the film is comical.

Rated R for pervasive language, some sexual content and brief violence
