When a man and a woman get into their hotel room, they kiss and the woman removes her top. We see the man licking her bare breasts and they kiss passionately with the woman straddling the man on a bed. They are interrupted by a phone call; the woman doesn't put her top back on until about four minutes later, so her bare breasts are visible several times -- sometimes from a distance, sometimes closer.

A woman is disappointed in how every time she has sex with a man, it's the same way every time; she then tells him two slang terms for body parts that the man focuses on during sex.

A man stands behind a woman and grabs her clothed breasts, kissing her on the cheek.

Two people pantomime gestures of oral sex.

A man says he envisions a future where people "plug in" to get sexual pleasure from a computer. A woman remarks that she read a lab report where a rat, after being trained to press a button to climax, pressed the button until it died, neglecting all other functions.

Three lines of dialogue about whether or not a woman "blew" a past boyfriend.

A man teases a woman, saying that he was reading a letter from her future that references a night as having the best sex of her life.

A woman tells a man that when she was a child, her father would kill her pet cat's kittens so that the cat would only have two kittens.


About 38 F-words and its derivatives, 26 scatological terms, 26 anatomical terms, and 14 religious exclamations.

Lots of name-calling, some of it sexual (i.e. horny).

A woman playfully teases her husband and says that he is going to cause their nine-year-old daughters to be drug addicts because he did not want them to sleep.

Men and women toast with and drink wine at dinner.

Two scenes of people smoking.

Some arguments and fights.

Rated R for sexual content/nudity and language
