Sex & Nudity
- Several characters wear thongs throughout the movie, both male and female.
- Some kissing and strong sex scenes
- Lots of topless women throughout the movie.
- A man is very briefly shown urinating and his penis can be seen for a second or two.
- A man gives a woman cunnilingus, and gropes her butt at the same time. She moans and climaxes.
- A lot of people wear revealing beach wear. Especially at parties.
Violence & Gore
- Primarily consisting of mishaps, some of which are bloody, one assault on a older individual, one serious car accident. The most graphic incident entails a man's foot amputated. The amputation is from a shark, with the severed foot shown after the incident, and obvious prosthetic, and in comedic context despite the graphic nature. The car accident results in the death of a main character.
- Frequent profanities of various types, used primarily in drunken/stoned/comedic context.
- 143 uses of "fuck"
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- Almost non-stop alcohol consumption, very frequent use of marijuana, and some use of hallucinogenic drugs. Substance use appears to be greater than 90% of the film's run time, with intoxication being a cornerstone of the central character's and many of his friends' lifestyle. This is essentially completely played for humor, except when associated with a motor vehicle accident.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- Drunken/stoned behavior and impaired judgement for other reasons leads to various accidents. Some of these are frightening, but most are not.
