  • Dr. Feinstone encounters the current dentist, Dr. Burns in Paradise and violently confronts him for doing poor dental work on him. Dr. Burns is backed into a corner and then falls down the stairs. When Dr. Feinstone goes to check his vitals he was dead on impact as he has no pulse and blood is shown coming from his forehead.
  • Dr. Feinstone is shown cutting into his arm in detail in a few scenes to try to battle his violent impulses. Blood is shown everytime this happens.

He then proceeds to play a game called truth or tooth, where if the lady lies to him she gets a tooth pulled. It is implied that he later kills the woman as well but the act is not shown. Overall that is most violent and disturbing scene in the movie.

  • A few swear words but nothing major or excessive.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Casual wine drinking between adults is shown.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The whole movie is rather intense but the dental torture scene in a particular would be considered the hardest part to view. Definately not a movie for children or anybody afraid of the going to the dentist to watch.
