MPAA Rated R for pervasive strong language, violence, some sexual content and brief drug use.

Sex & Nudity

  • A woman unzips her skirt to reveal a tattoo on her butt cheek.
  • Sexual references, implied sex, kissing and sexy texts.
  • A woman is laying on a couch wearing lingerie and begins to masturbate, suddenly a fully clothed man walks in and she stops.

Violence & Gore

  • A man gets punched in the throat, and is later hit in the nose and thrown into a fountain. Some bloody tissues are shown in the next scene as his girlfriend cleans him up.
  • A young man is carried out of a mine with a heavily bleeding leg injury. His bones are briefly exposed. Someone pours alcohol on the injury to cleanse it.
  • A man starts two fights in a nightclub, and several people are punched and manhandled.
  • Two men gang up on a another man, ripping his shirt and knocking him to the ground.
  • A man starts a fight at his daughter's school, biting one of his opponents and leaving a mark before being forcefully stripped naked and thrown into the trunk of a car.
  • A man is clubbed in the back as he runs away. We see a large mark later.
  • A man is held out of a window and threatened to be dropped.


  • 560 uses of "fuck", and dozens of other milder profanities. Reportedly the third most profane film of all time.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Cocaine is mentioned and used very briefly in a club scene.
  • Some drinking, mostly in social settings along with brief smoking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Howard is constantly harassed by a gang of vicious loan sharks who beat him up and steal from him.
  • This is a VERY stressful, intense, and uncomfortable film, with overwhelming elements such as people constantly shouting over each other, constant loud music, claustrophobic scenarios, and sudden violence.
  • The scene that takes place in the night club is very claustrophobic. Howard and The Weeknd get into a fight, this part is very tense to watch with all of the loud music in the background and indistinct shouting.
  • One of the most claustrophobic scenes in the movie is when Howard is clubbed and thrown into an SUV where he is constantly manhandled and has his clothes taken off by a gang of loan sharks and thrown into the trunk of a car.
  • The scene where Howard tries to get the door open while KG and his friends are stuck in a tight space is extremely tense. The constant yelling and buzzing is incredibly anxious.
