  • Uses of stupidity and hell.
  • Approximately 20 swear words including 6 shit words and the bitch word.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Some of the large competitors could be seen as frightening and intense, their behaviour is a little aggressive, but would not be likely to disturb children.
  • One character dies and this could possibly upset some but it is a peaceful death with no gore or unnecessary attention.
