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


A man is shown in bed with a topless elderly woman. Then, from a distance, we see a man's abdomen in a mirror and a kneeling woman is making jerking motions at his groin, strongly implying oral sex. Very brief.

A painting of two mostly naked women (wearing only long black stockings) touching each other's genitals and kissing. Legs are spread toward the viewer; pubic hair is visible but genitalia is obscured. This work, while usually seen from a distance, recurs multiple times throughout.

There are black-and-white pictures of fully naked women on the walls of a jail cell (whilst the pictures are small, breasts are visible, but genitalia is obscured by shadows and pubic hair).

A man is interrupted in the middle of implied intercourse.

Sexual dialogue is present, primarily through the use of euphemisms. A man uses a crude phrase to describe his lover's sexual prowess ("she was dynamite in the sack").

Violence & Gore


A man's fingers are sliced off with a slamming door; the fingers are seen in a close-up, with blood on the concrete. The man is eventually revealed to have died, his body briefly seen in a photograph.

A prisoner fatally stabs four prison guards and is himself killed in the struggle (mostly off-screen, although a bloody shot is shown).

There is a brief shot of a severed head.

Many people get punched, often leading to bloody noses and bruises.

A cat is thrown out of a window. The cat is seen spread-eagle on the pavement in a bright red splat of blood. We see the bag with the dead cat in it later on, and there is a visible patch of red blood staining the bag. The effect is cartoon-like rather than gory.

A shootout between many characters ensues; no one is visibly wounded.

Most violence and gore is comical rather than horrific.



Around 15 F-words, some used sexually, six anatomical terms, 13 mild obscenities, six scatological terms, three homophobic terms, eight religious profanities, four religious exclamations.

Name-calling and several stereotypical references to ethnic groups.


People socially consume alcohol.


All violence is portrayed in a comedic tone (the movie is not dark). However, the third act can be emotional.

A woman's severed head is seen.

A man's fingers are chopped off by a door (this is very sudden).

A character is suddenly pushed off the edge of a cliff. No gore.
