Sex & Nudity

  • Several people are shown fully nude in a non-sexual context during a post-credits scene. This includes full frontal male and female nudity.
  • A quick flash of two people having sex. Too quick to see any movement, no sound. Bare breasts are visible. There's passionate kissing. Their lower halves are covered with a blanket/out of frame. If you blink you will miss the scene.
  • A large group of people are having sex on a roof top and can be seen from above. Nothing can clearly be made out, but if you focus in, it's obvious it's a massive orgy happening where all sorts of sexual activity is occurring.
  • A woman seductively rubs a man's thigh. Later they are seen together in bed. Sex is implied.

Violence & Gore

  • A man gets a bottle thrown at him from a crowd and is seen with a brief bloody wound on his face.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Though the majority of the film is a comedy, the final third of the film becomes significantly darker in tone, with the final 10-15 minutes depicting a large comet hitting the planet, eliminating all life.
