A major theme is prostitution.

There is one scene which pushes NC-17 territory in which old men are seen having sex with much younger women. Brief graphic images of nudity and sex in a motel room where multiple prostitutes are having sex; we see male full frontal and rear nudity, a brief shot of a couple having "doggie-style" as they are interrupted, another couple having sex standing in a shower and then being interrupted, and we also see female topless and rear nudity. The scene is shaky, energetic, and quickly edited - played for shock.

A blow-job is shown in a carwash from behind in a car with no nudity nor audio.

A man masturbates in a car while a trans prostitute holds his scrotum (no nudity), he stops when he realizes it isn't working.

A man pulls down a prostitutes shirt to briefly reveal her breasts, and then pulls open her pants, revealing partial frontal nudity, he stops when he realizes she doesn't have a penis.

Frank, graphic, and sometimes comedic descriptions of sexual references, transactions, and propositions.

A trans woman drags another woman in one bare foot around the city, throws her against fences and onto the ground, slaps her, and pushes her around for a majority of the film. Mostly played for laughs.

A trans woman has urine thrown on her from a car and is called derogatory slurs. Shocking and upsetting.

A drunk man babbling over his unconscious friend suddenly vomits in the backseat of a taxi multiple times. He and is friend are thrown out of the taxi and he then continues to throw up in the grass. Gross and unexpected.

Many aggressive arguments take place towards the end of the film in a small donut shop. Again, mostly played for laughs.

Constant, unending uses of colorful profanity throughout. Language ranges from "f**k" and its multiple variations, "s**t", "b*tch, some derogatory and racial epithets like "n***a", "f*g" and "f****t"", multiple anatomical terms like "p***y", "d**k, and "t*ts", and other uses of more mild words like "ass", "damn, "hell", and "balls".

3 scenes of characters smoking crystal meth. The first 2 include many prolonged shots of the smoking and inhalation of the drug.

Characters sometimes smoke cigarettes.

Some references to drugs and drug dealing.

Rated R for strong and disturbing sexual content, graphic nudity, language throughout, and drug use
