Sex & Nudity

  • A man leers at some girls in bikinis while they play volleyball.
  • Some mild sexual humor
  • A man and woman have aggressive sex in a car. No nudity.

Violence & Gore

  • A child kicks a midget man between the legs. The man retaliates by punching the child between the legs. He also punches another man between the legs.
  • Something is driven into a man, and blood drips from his mouth (The unrated version is a bit longer and the man is electrocuted with jumper cables at the end of the scene). This is the only really bloody scene.
  • A child cuts his hand by "mistake" and we see blood and he's screaming and the main character tries to help the child by pouring alcohol on the wound which causes the child to scream louder and he runs back upstairs. We later learn that the child made a "present" for the main character and explained what actually happened.
  • A man is shot several times by police in the back while attempting to run from them.
  • A man is approached by another man who attacks him.
  • A man is approached by another man who attacks him, and bends his hand. He then pulls his pants down in a apparent rape attempt (the incident is interrupted and nothing happens).
  • A bully beats up kids.
  • A man beats up the bullies.

Profanity

  • The strong language is probably main reason why the film is rated R. The unrated version has more strong language.
  • 159 uses of "fuck", 73 uses of "shit", 31 uses of "ass", 10 uses of "bitch", and 1 use of "bastard". Also several uses of "goddamn", 1 use of "dick", 1 use of "pussy", 1 use of "prick", 1 use of "tits", 1 use of "faggot".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Lots of smoking too.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
