MPAA Rated R for language and brief sexuality/nudity

Sex & Nudity

  • We see a line of shapely women (strippers or prostitutes) in skimpy bikinis (showing cleavage and part of their bare butts) about whom Zmuda tells Andy he can pick two of them. When Andy walks off with his chosen two, Zmuda tells an older woman that it's Andy's first time with a prostitute which makes the woman laugh as she tells him that Andy's there every week.
  • We then see Andy wrestling around with the women on a bed with both of them being topless.
  • As Tony Clifton, Andy feels a woman's clothed breast.
  • Kaufman does a lounge act as Tony Clifton who's accompanied by many "Vegas" type dancers whose nipples are just covered with small star-shaped patches (otherwise the rest of their bare breasts are seen).
  • About his wrestling with women, Lynne tells Kaufman, "You had a huge boner on national television."
  • A comment is made about a center for sexual research as Kaufman is on the phone.
  • As Tony, Kaufman says, "Skip the meal...go right to the ménage a trios." He also asks a woman if she's ever been with another woman (she replies, "Yeah, in the kitchen").

Violence & Gore

  • In a scene from "Taxi," a character makes Andy's character slap himself.
  • Kaufman throws some furniture around on a set.
  • We see a montage of Kaufman wrestling with many women (in the ring) where he and some of them occasionally bite each other (while another does some kickboxing on him).
  • On a TV sketch show, Kaufman slaps another man and they get into a fight, but it turns out the whole thing was just staged.
  • In a wrestling match, Jerry Lawler grabs Kaufman and pile drives him into the mat. Zmuda then rushes up and pushes Lawler who pushes him back.
  • On a TV show, Lawler slaps Kaufman hard enough to send him out of his chair.


  • At least 6 "f" words, 8 "s" words, 1 slang term for male genitals ("schlong"), a few uses each of piss and bastard, 6 asses (2 used with "hole"), 5 hells, 1 damn, 1 crap and 2 uses each of "Goddamn" and "For Christ's sakes" and 1 use each of "Oh my God," "God" and "Jesus Christ" as exclamations.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People in bars or other venues drink in more than five such settings. Zmuda has a beer. While on "Taxi," Kaufman holds a bottle of booze, as does a woman next to him. Kaufman appears on a TV sketch show where one particular skit is about people being high on drugs (where the narrator states that everyone's secretly brought along a joint). This doesn't go on very long, however, as Kaufman states that he doesn't want to do a skit using drugs as a joke. Like others in a restaurant, Shapiro has wine with his meal. Lynn has a drink. As Tony Clifton, Kaufman smokes a few times, while Lynne smokes once and various background characters smoke in bars or other venues.
