  • There's a large final battle in which characters shoot at each other, and fight with fists and other weapons. A man is shot and blood spurts, and he falls off of a boat. Another man is kicked, hits his head on something hard, and falls off of the boat.

  • A corpse is shown with two knife wounds and a shark bite.

  • There are also uses of "hell," "damn," "ass," "shit," "bitch," "dick," "balls," "bullshit," and "asshole." "Dick" is used both sexually and as an insult.

  • The main plot involves the bad guys dealing drugs. The drugs are shown washing up on the beach in small packets and being smuggled, and a few background characters are mentioned to have been high on it, but the drugs are never shown being used.
  • Matt (Zac Efron) is a bit of an alcoholic. A video of him at the Olympics shows him vomiting in the swimming pool after a night of drinking, and he later gets drunk while undercover at a party, where he also vomits in a pool.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The boat rescue scene has some intensity as the lifeguards try to save people from a yacht that has been set ablaze. Matt almost drowns when he swims underneath an area covered in fire and doesn't see an immediate way out. There is also a jump scare when a window suddenly explodes while Mitch hangs on next to it.

Sex & Nudity

  • A clothed Ronnie gets an erection when CJ performs the Heimleich on him while he was choking. He then jumps and lands belly-first onto a wooden deck chair to hide his erection from her, but by doing so, he gets his penis stuck in between the slats. There are a few close-ups on it as he and others try to get it unstuck.
  • Full frontal male genital nudity: - "The scene shows Mitch playing a terrible prank on poor Matt when he tells him to check a dead man's naked body for evidence of a crime. The runnning joke has Efron graphically handling the corpse's penis and scrotum in full view and even lifting the organs up and out of the way so he can examine the skin area underneath"

Violence & Gore

  • A man is killed offscreen, has his swimsuit filled with bloody fish guys, and is eaten by sharks, the bloody wounds are graphic and are shown onscreen

Frightening & Intense Scenes
