The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

On a late night date, Mickey and Johnny go swimming they don't go fully nude. Johnny strips down to boxers, and Mickey to a shirt and panties. They kiss and caress while in the water, but sex isn't implied. They also kiss passionately at another time.

A man makes a pass at Mickey at a bar, touching her arm and drawing her forward. Her dad and Johnny intervene. She wears a low cut top that reveals more cleavage when she bends down to take a shot on a pool table.

A young high school baseball player says all he cares about is "banging chicks." He and other players make crude jokes. One includes making fun of a fat boy, if he had enough grease on his lunch, and the boy retorts, "I used up all my grease on your mother."

Violence & Gore

In flashback, we watch Gus beat the molester to a pulp . He reacts similarly to the man who meets Mickey at the bar, forcing him against a wall, hitting him, and threatening him with a broken beer bottle.

There is a brief car accident, but no fatal injuries. We see Gus with a bruised face and bandaged eye. Gus, nearly tripping over a coffee table, sends the piece of furniture flying with a kick.

Mickey was nearly molested as a 6 year old, discovered by Gus. We see a man lightly caressing Mickey's back before Gus appears and begins beating the guy.

Profanity

One fuck and a half-dozen shits. A dozen uses each of "hell" and "ass." We also hear "bitch" and "bastard." Mickey calls her bosses at the law firm "jerk-offs." God's and Jesus' names are misused about 15 times, with God's getting combined with "damn" on five or six occasions.

All of the characters in the movie drink. Mickey and Johnny drink straight from a bottle of whiskey, and take shots of tequila at a bar. Gus drinks beer in many scenes, including visiting his wife's grave, pouring her a glass. He also has beer with breakfast. He also smokes a cigar. One spectator at a game is obviously drunk.

The scene we hear of a man almost molesting Mickey is intense
