Sex & Nudity

  • A very brief shot of a woman covering her breasts with her hands, this is easily missed
  • Overall, this film has some references
  • A quick shot focused on the mirror with the reflection of a man standing with a woman performing oral
  • Except for a painting in a few shots, most of the nudity in this film is easily missed upon first viewing. Some references
  • Though it seems this is an incredibly sexual film, all the nudity is incredibly brief and is blink-and-you'll-miss-it. There are sexual references, but nothing explicit is mentioned and it can go over a child's head. The only thing close to nudity is an abstract painting of a nude woman, said painting is used comedically and is completely inaccurate to the female body. From 15.15-15.22.
  • In a short, 15 second montage towards the beginning of the film, there are several 1 second shots with sexual activities being shown. The two most graphic being one with a man and an older woman in bed, her bare breasts are seen. And one with a woman performing oral on the same man. Very easy to skip over however
  • A shot that lasts for at least 10 seconds of a painting. a man and a woman, the man pleasuring the woman.
  • A scene includes a paint which has two girls kissing and touching with shown breasts.
  • This montage happens when F. Murray Abraham and Jude Law are talking at a table together. It ends when Jude Law says "why blondes?"
  • A man calls another man a "Faggot"
  • There are non graphic black-and-white paintings of naked women in the background of some shots. There are naked statues.
  • An elderly man is seen bathing. His genitals are not visible, just shoulders and up.
  • A man says a woman is like dynamite in the sack
  • Some remarks about a man being a predator
  • Brief shot of man and a woman kissing in bed.

Violence & Gore

  • Someone has four fingers sliced off, followed by a close-up of them lying on the ground.
  • A prisoner fatally stabs four prison guards and is himself killed in the struggle. The fight is kept offscreen, but the aftermath is shown, with various bloodstains on the bodies.
  • Many people get punched, often leading to bloody noses and bruises.
  • A cat is thrown out of a window. The cat is seen spread-eagle on the pavement in a bright red splat of blood. We see a bloody bag with the dead cat in it later on. The effect is cartoon-like rather than gory.
  • A shootout between many characters ensues; no one is hurt and the scene is meant to be humorous.
  • Most violence and gore is comical rather than horrific.
  • A woman's severed head is pulled out of a basket.


  • Wes Anderson's most profane film by far.
  • As with any Wes Anderson movie all the characters talk very fast so the profanity is very easy to miss
  • 20 uses of "fuck" A few uses of "shit", "ass", "damn", and "hell". 2 uses of "faggot"
  • Name-calling and several stereotypical references to ethnic groups.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People socially consume alcohol. A man is seen smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • All violence is portrayed in a comedic tone (the movie is not dark)
