The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A man seduces another woman by getting her drunk, secretly tapes the encounter with his phone, and it becomes a political ad.
  • A man confesses to his girlfriend that he had an affair with a waiter at a certain restaurant. The girl slowly replies "So did I.".

Violence & Gore

  • A man gets bitten by a snake. The venom causes him to shout a flurry of obscenities, hallucinate and then jump through a window. He is seen in the hospital with an extremely swollen arm.
  • A man shoots another man in the leg with a rifle, and there is a small blood spot on his pant leg.
  • A man punches a baby, a dog, and hits a cow on the road - all by mistake
  • A man has a scar from a playground accident. Later in the film, we see that another man is covered in scars from that same playground.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Nothing really frightening. A man is bitten by a snake, which may happen quite unexpectedly and may scare a few. After the snake bite (in the extended cut of the film), there is a scene where a man is running through the woods and later eats a raccoon.
