MPAA Rated R for a scene of bloody violence, some strong sexual content/nudity, and language

Sex & Nudity

  • A couple has a conversation in the shower so that nobody can hear them. Their butts are shown as well as the woman's side breast and the man's penis briefly. Not too graphic.
  • A man and a woman kiss passionately in a hallway. They go to a couch and she removes her shirt, revealing her breasts for about five seconds. The scene ends before anything else happens.
  • Nick performs oral sex on Amy under a blanket
  • Nick is seen thrusting into Amy from behind they make sounds like sexual moaning while Amy is in her underwear and nick is fully clothed but he unbuttons his shirt partially
  • There are several sex scenes throughout the movie. There is an implied sex scene that has some breast nudity. The rest include various positions like missionary and cunnilingus, and contain thrusting and panting. All of them, except for the final sex scene, are brief and ingraphic.

Violence & Gore

  • A man shoves a woman and she hits a stairwell banister.
  • A man throws a glass out of anger, shattering it.
  • A woman shoves her husband and he violently throws her into a stairwell banister. This is very violent and shocking.
  • There are some graphic references to rape and abuse.
  • Most of the film does not include violence. When it does occur, however, it is either very shocking and disturbing, or in one particular scene, very bloody and graphic.


  • 'F*ck' is said 49 times.
  • 'B*tch' is said several times.
  • '*ss' is said several times, including some paired with 'hole'.
  • 'D*mn' is said several times.
  • 'H*ll' is said several times.
  • 'C*nt' is said four times.
  • Lots of language
  • 'Sh*t' is said.
  • There are over 50 uses of "fuck" and the word "cunt" is said four times quickly in a very graphic way during a scene of graphic violence.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Amy, Greta, and Jeff smoke cigarettes.
  • A scene takes place in a bar where the main character drinks in the morning.
  • People drink at a house party.
  • Characters are seen drinking alcohol, including wine and champagne, at a dinner party
  • Nick and his sister are seen drinking frequently.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Disturbing thematic material and overtone, and the sudden bursts of violence can be frightening.
  • Some emotionally intense moments, including crying and yelling. The mature themes of murder, infidelity, and manipulation might upset some viewers. This is definitely too intense for younger audiences.
  • This film constantly leaves you in suspense and is also a diaturbing film.
  • The mindset of some of the characters in the film could be seen as disturbed and aberrant.
