Sex & Nudity

  • It's said that Rob stole Theresa from Tommy, "...f*cked her, and knocked her up." Uncle Al, seen on an old videotape, is called "Pinocchio" by some teens at a birthday party. He then grabs one of them, sets her on his lap, and says that there's "something else growing (other than his nose)." Tommy, also on videotape, threatens to "whip it out" while faking that he's going to pull down his zipper. There's a good amount of sexual tension between Tommy and Debbie (17 years old and his former girlfriend's niece). After getting "high" together, they end up on the floor passionately kissing. Nothing more is seen, but the next morning he drives her home and they both look uncomfortable. Thus, it's implied that they had sex, although he later states that they "only made out." The bartender hopes that she didn't say the wrong thing to Jerry when he came looking for Debbie. Tommy then says, "What, like he's bopping (slang for sex) your daughter?"
  • For a short moment Debbie's pants can be seen.

Violence & Gore

  • * Rob grabs Tommy's finger and bends it backwards after he tires of Tommy hanging out in front of his garage.
  • * Mike and Matthew (Uncle Al's son) get into a fight in the bar and have to be separated (all we see is struggling with no punches thrown). A truck hits the back of Tommy's car. No one is hurt, but the car is damaged a little.
  • * Some older kids, playing stick ball, whack Tommy's ice cream truck when he drives by them.
  • * Tommy mentions that Jerry (Debbie's father) once saved him in a fight by bashing a large and heavy ashtray onto the other guy's head. Debbie tells Tommy that her father "wailed" on her (hit) after he found out she didn't spend the night at her friend's house. Many bruises are seen on her arms.
  • * Jerry chases Tommy (after learning that he slept with his daughter) and yells, "You're f*cking dead" and "I'll f*cking kill you." They end up on a baseball field where Tommy climbs a fence to avoid being hit by the baseball bat that Jerry's wielding. Jerry then goes to the ice cream truck and begins smashing the windows and a headlight. When Tommy tries to stop him, Jerry hits him on the head with the bat. Jerry then proceeds to throw all of the ice cream, candy, and money out onto the street.

Profanity

  • 57 "f" words (1 used sexually, 1 used by a little girl, 1 used as slang: "bopped"), 16 "s" words, 12 "ass" words, 2 hells, 1 slang term for female genitals (the "p" word), 1 damn, and 3 uses each of "God" and "Christ," 2 uses each of "Jesus Christ," "For Christ's sake," "Swear to God," and "Oh God," and 1 use each of "Oh my God" and "Jesus" as exclamations.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • * There are several scenes where cocaine is snorted. Tommy's cousin, Matthew, uses it after his father's death. Tommy tries to snort some (supplied by Mike), but is interrupted. Later, Mike is interrupted from snorting coke when the phone rings and he chases everyone out of his house, including Tommy who tries to snort some when he comes back in.
  • * Tommy and Mike roll their own joints and smoke pot. They then give a joint to Debbie (17 years old) and another woman. Later Debbie says that she's "stoned."
  • * Since most of the story takes place in a bar, there's an extreme amount of drinking of beer, whiskey and other liquor consumed in the bar and in other locations. Many characters are occasionally seen drunk and/or passed out. There is a drinking contest between Tommy and a woman where, after drinking shots of "wild turkey," he'll try to drink two glasses of beer before she can drink a shot glass of beer.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • * An ice cream truck slowly swerves down a street (after its driver has had a heart attack) and nearly hits a boy who waits until the very last moment to get out of the way.
  • * Jerry chases Tommy with a baseball bat until he climbs up a fence to get away. Jerry lunges at him with the bat a few times, then goes to smash Tommy's truck--as well as throwing out all the money, ice cream and candy to the local neighborhood kids. He then hits Tommy in the head with a bat--we see him bleeding.
