A man begins to have sex with his wife before being interrupted by an alarm, then by their baby. One of her breasts is briefly seen.

A strip club is visited with several nearly-nude dancers. One man slaps a stripper's bottom after being dared to.

Nude art is seen on walls (nothing graphic, and the camera doesn't focus on them).

Two men begin to defecate inside of a house. Their buttocks can be seen.

A man pays another man (who is also married) to have sex with his wife while he and another man watch. The woman thrusts on top of him and moans, saying that she is going to cum while her husband says that he is also going to cum as he masturbates. Both eventually climax. No nudity is seen.


The violence in this film is extremely graphic and very brutal. This is not for a weak of heart.

A woman slaps a man in the face.

A man punches a bouncer in the face. The bouncer punches him back, knocking him out. He wakes up with a very bloody nose.

A man holds another man at knife point.

A man twists another man's arm, knocking him over.

A man punches another man in the stomach.

A man grabs another man by the neck and knocks him to the ground.

A man kidnaps a dog and holds it at knife point, asking how much money he would receive if he killed it. He is told not to and is shamed for even suggesting it.

A man's pinkie finger is chopped off with a meat cleaver. It bleeds and dangles from his hand by a flap of skin. He pulls it off completely. The wound is cauterized with an iron. This scene is extremely graphic and very bloody.

A dog chokes to death on a severed finger. The dog is later cooked and eaten. All of this happens off-screen except for 1. the dog served up on a platter cooked, fur and a paw still attached and 2. two men graphically wolfing down their halves of the dog, with accompanying cranked-up sound effects (chewing, etc)

A man kicks another man on the ground repeatedly.

A man eats his own severed finger, then vomits.

A man lunges at another man and punches him repeatedly in the face, then spits on him. We don't see the punches hit directly, but later the man's face is revealed to have almost been beaten beyond recognition.

A man shoots another man. The man falls over and hits his head on a table. When he begins to get back up, he is shot in the head and dies. The shooting is not graphic or bloody but when the man begins to get up we see the wound where his face hit the corner/edge of the table


There is constant use of strong language. The word "fuck" is used over 100 times. Words such as "bitch", "pussy", "cock", "shit", and "asshole" are also used.


There is constant drinking of alcohol and usage of cocaine.

Prescription painkillers are used illicitly.


While it is darkly comical, the whole film is highly disturbing and brutal considering what people will do for money.

2 of the main characters are incredibly disturbed, violent, and sadistic. One character is clearly sexually aroused by the depraved acts committed throughout the film.

The film becames more and more intense, disturbing and very violent as the film proceeds including the last 20 minute. This is not for a weak of heart.

Sensitive viewers will very likely be highly disturbed by this film.

Suggested MPAA Rating: Rated R for strong graphic and brutal violence, drug use, sexual content, and strong pervasive language

Argentina:18 (with restriction) / Australia:R18+ / Canada:14A (British Columbia) / Germany:18 / Ireland:16 / Ireland:18 (DVD rating) / UK:15 / USA:Not Rated
