Sex & Nudity

  • We see a women sunbathing completely naked. We see her breasts and pubic area and the camera stays on her for a good 30 seconds so we can all have a long look at her naked. Completely gratuitous.
  • Larry dreams of having sex with the woman (the women is wearing a bra), The scene includes sexual movements and sounds (no nudity)
  • Mild sexual references

Violence & Gore

  • In the opening segment set in the 1800s, a woman stabs a man in the chest with an ice pick. As blood begins to soak his shirt, the elderly man hobbles out into the snow.
  • Larry triggers a three-car pile-up in town. We don't see it, but Sy is also involved in a wreck. Larry's angry gun-toting neighbor returns from a hunting trip with a bloody deer carcass strapped to his station wagon's roof. Later, in one of Larry's dreams, the neighbor shoots Arthur with his rifle and then points at Larry and says to his son, "There's another Jew, son!" Blood splatters from Arthur's head graphically. A painting depicts the biblical Abraham holding a knife to Isaac's chest. A lawyer keels over in a meeting with a heart attack.
