Sex & Nudity

  • This movie centers around a strip club, its employees, and its visitors. Throughout the movie, women are shown topless 3 times. Many other employees wear bikinis. This is exceptionally tame for a film centered around a strip club.
  • In the first brief exotic dancing scene, a woman is seen dancing with her top hanging fully open, exposing her nipples. Other women dancing on stage at the same time are shown topless, wearing only skimpy thong bottoms.
  • Demi Moore has several exotic dancing scenes in the movie: three in the club, two at a private venue, and one at home. There is brief, topless nudity in two of them.
  • A woman dances for about three minutes in a skimpy, transparent outfit, then she then removes the bra, dancing topless for a further half minute or so.
  • There is no overt sexuality in the movie. There is not even any kissing.

Profanity

  • Not Too bad

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Much of the movie is shot in a strip club, where many of the patrons are shown drinking alcohol and smoking.
  • In other scenes, characters pour single social drinks for themselves.
  • Two of the main characters are shown heavily intoxicated, multiple times each. In one of the two cases, the character is stoned on a combination of alcohol and "wolf morphine" misappropriated from a veterinary prescription; this character is shown weaving dangerously in a stolen car on a busy highway.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A woman is in the driver's seat of a car when a man rises up from the backseat, grabs her, and holds a knife to her throat. He backs up his physical threat with verbal threats.
  • Several characters threaten others with guns. Shots are fired in one scene, but no one is hit.
