Sex & Nudity

  • Yes, nudity. A woman slightly darkens the room and in full camera view, removes her clothes. Her body is a darkened silhouette, but she is very visible. She climbs on the bed and the man and woman have sex under a sheet (sounds drowned out by recording played from a previous conversation). Very obvious it was pre-PG-13 rating.
  • A man goes into a woman's apartment to sleep with her, but he changes his mind and leaves. (Nothing happens here)
  • We see a naked woman's shadow on a wall while she's changing. No nudity and nothing is shown.
  • Some kissing is shown throughout.

Violence & Gore

  • A bloody aftermath of a fight is seen in a hotel room.
  • A bloody hand hits a pane of glass.
  • A dead body covered in blood is seen.
  • A man flushes a toilet and blood comes pouring out.


  • 3 total abuses of "Christ," and 1 of "Jesus" over the course of 2 conversations; each time the one swearing is rebuked for the blasphemy. "Goddamn" and other curse words are also present in the movie's dialogs.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some drinking is seen at a party.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A couple of jump moments near the end of the film, when the main character searches a hotel room.
