Sex & Nudity

  • Rippner insinuates that the fight in the bathroom was a "quickie"
  • A woman changes in the bathroom. We see her in her bra.

  • Moderate references to sex and sexual violence.
  • A woman tells a story about how a man attacked her.
  • The flight attendants mistakenly believe a man and woman had sex, just because they were seen in the airplane's bathroom, together.

Violence & Gore

  • Moderate violence throughout. Injuries are not as accurately depicted, hence less gore. There are scenes of bloodshed, but are brief. A character is stabbed by a pen; this is the most jarring moment in the movie.
  • A man knocks out a woman by head-butting her, we hear a crunch and a trickle of blood is seen on the mans forhead.-Fairly brutal
  • A violent scene in a airplane bathroom when a man threatens a woman violently, suggesting sexual content, although it never happens,
  • A woman brutally stabs a man in the neck with a pen, we hear a grizly crunch and see the impaled pen weeping a trickle of blood.-Brutal
  • A man pulls a pen out of his neck, could be difficult for those who are squeamish.
  • A man chasing a woman grabs her and pulls her to the ground
  • A floor on a tall hotel building explodes-Intense
  • A man shoots at a car from a driveway, the driver turns and hits him, smashing him thorugh a glass door and smashing him into the floor. We see a pool of blood forming aound his head, implyign heavy damage to the head/neck-Slightly bloody.
  • The movie altogether does not contain much visible blood but in places can be very intense.
  • Both of the characters are hurt by each other. A man is hit with a fire extinguisher, then a glass plate. A man is stabbed in the leg by a woman's high heel shoes, then pulls it out immeditally without pain. A old man is knocked out for a short time, the cause is unknown.

  • One use of strong language and infrequent moderate/mild language.
