There is a scene in a hotel room where a woman has sex with a man. There is no nudity shown. The scene is a few minutes long and involves her giving the man instructions. The sex scene is mostly crude and comedic in nature with a lot of awkward expressions. The naked rear is shown of Diana's partner after the covers are removed.

There is a scene where a woman is shown in a bathtub in a hotel. She takes the shower sprayer and holds it under the water, implying she is using it on herself.

There are a few sexual references and insults. References are made to a man's genitals being removed by accident.

Several scenes allude to sexual behaviour in a comedic manner.


Diana is hit by a car. We see her body fly over the vehicle and land horribly on the asphalt. But once she comes to her senses, she seems fine. Sandy causes a van to crash. It flips several times, leaving Diana's face bloodied. In a separate scene, Sandy's rental car is crushed by a semi. Diana rams Sandy's car.

Sandy is bitten on the neck by a snake. Diana tries to beat the snake off with a flaming stick. A bounty hunter is shot in the neck, leaving a window stained with blood. Two criminal lowlifes get shot in the leg and foot, and then are forced into a car trunk. Several people are punched, grabbed and threatened. Diana hits folks in the neck. A bad guy threatens to burn down a salon. Diana falls on the ground after trying to swing on a chandelier. Several characters engage in humorous slap-fights/wrestling matches. Someone gets Tasered.


About 45 F-words and derivatives, 3 sexual references, 36 scatological terms, 19 anatomical terms, 22 mild obscenities, 6 religious profanities and 7 religious exclamations.

Name-calling (stupid, idiot, crazy, vagina, sissy boy, liar, thief, fraud, baby, sociopath, sick, Hobbit, Bilbo, Batman, dykes, chump, Mega Mind, whores and tranny.)


Diana buys more than $2,000 worth of drinks on Sandy's credit card, downing tequila shots, guzzling liquor straight from the bottle and giving booze to all her "friends" at the bar.

"Those aren't your friends," the bartender eventually tells her, explaining why she needs to go home. "They like you because you're buying them drinks." The very drunk Diana won't listen, though, and punches the guy in the throat.

Elsewhere she drinks champagne straight from the bottle while taking a bath. She talks about how driving drunk is OK but driving sleepy is dangerous.

Sandy takes Trish's sedatives with him on his trip, thinking he might have to sedate Diana to get her to Denver. Diana discovers the drugs and pockets them. Later she mixes a cocktail for Big Chuckplopping a couple of pills in the concoction so she can rob him blind. (She thinks better of giving him the drink when he tells her how he's not been with a woman since his wife died.) Sandy's old boss accuses Sandy (unfairly) of being a drug dealer.


This movie is full of comic mayhem, with cars crunching into each other (sometimes on purpose.)

Characters shooting at each other.

Total: 24/50

Rated R for sexual content and language
