MPAA Rated R for bloody violence, language throughout, some drug and sexual content

Sex & Nudity

  • Columbus and Madison are implied to be having rowdy sex, though nothing can be seen, some can be heard. Very short. Later in the movie, Madison makes a comment about Columbus not minding it when she bit him.
  • One character, Madison, wears midriff and cleavage-revealing outfits and often acts flirty around other characters.
  • Little Rock wears some low-cut tops that reveal a fair amount of cleavage.
  • Tallahassee and a woman are shown in bed together. Sex is implied. It is also implied she is naked, but in the outtakes, she is wearing a nightie
  • When they arrive at Babylon, a guy says one of the rules is "no group sex." The same guy later says it again, but wants to join if they are going to do it.
  • Albuquerque and Tallahassee go back and forth about "using the driveway" at the Hound Dog Hotel. Nevada makes a comment about neither one getting to use the driveway again. Columbus and Wichita then remark about "driveway" figuratively meaning sex, not the road.
  • Few kisses

Violence & Gore

  • A zombie gets stomped on the head; his head gets crushed and you can see the inside of it.
  • In the opening credit scene, Close shots of zombies being shot. Some also include getting executed with a shotgun and blades.
  • Surprisingly, in the Columbia Pictures logo at the beginning, there's blood. This time, it involves the Torch Lady beating two zombies to death, and blood splatters everywhere, covering the 'C' in the 'Columbia' text with blood, and there's some blood on the Torch Lady's clothing. This is more comedic than violent.
  • More violent than the first one. Woody Harrelson & Jesse Eisenberg are blasting zombie's heads off with shotguns at the start.
  • The gore and blood is mainly from the Zombies so it can be seen as not too graphic for some.
  • This movie is WAY more violent and gorier then the first included with a zombies head getting stomped on and people getting turned into zombies, however parents need to know that all the violence in this is done in a funny way.
  • Brutal zombie executions throughout. Zombies are killed using bats, various guns, and completely ridiculous means.
  • Exposed and raw bloody body parts shown throughout, includes shattered bones, realistic muscle, and large content of intestines.


  • 48 uses of "fuck", 20 uses of "shit", 2 uses of "bitch" and the middle finger, 5 uses of "god damn", 1 use of "cocksucking", 2 uses of "pussy"

  • Madison holds a giant bowl of mushrooms.
  • One reference to cocaine.
  • Madison is seen with a big glass bowl of marijuana.
  • Some smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
