Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

  • Holley Shiftwell shocks multiple cars with a hidden tazer gun.
  • In multiple scenes, cars are shot with ab electromagnetic pulse weapon, which causes their engines to smoke (they are implied to blow up) and they lose control, resulting in crashes.
  • Cars are outfitted with machine guns, rockets and other spy-weapon paraphernalia, resulting in numerous bullet-riddled and explosion-peppered chase scenes. Cars frequently crash and smash into the scenery and often crumble on impact. One spy, for instance, gets killed, and his body shows up as a cube of crushed metal.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One of the characters is a Volkswagon van with a funky paint job that speaks with a hippie affectation, has squinty eyes, and makes reference to his "organic" fuel. No overt drug references, but the characterization is recognizable as a "stoner" for adults
  • We see cars popping bottles of champagne.
  • We see cars at a bar drinking from martini glasses.
  • A truck drinks from a martini glass.
  • We see a car taking martini glasses and pitchers from a bar and trays.
  • We see filled pint glasses lined up on a bar in front of cars.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Two characters end up in a situation where they are to be crushed by the gears of a giant clock.
