SEX/NUDITY 3 - Numerous instances of sexual innuendo (in one scene, men
admire male movie stars' bodies) and a few kisses (one is between men). Many breast
jokes and references to Hooters restaurants. We see several cleavage-revealing tops, some
scantily clad food servers and a woman in a bra while getting dressed. We see a "Live
Nudes" neon sign several times.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Mostly played for laughs. Twice, a man and boy place a
stick in front of inline skaters, who then trip and fall (one hits a rock and tumbles into
a lake). A man intentionally runs in front of a car and rolls on top of the hood and a man
rolls down a hill in a shopping cart, hits a pole and falls onto the ground (neither are
injured). We see lots of dead pigeons on the ground, and it's implied that a boy has
killed them with a slingshot. While men are wrestling, a man becomes unconscious after
being put in a "sleeper" hold; the other man pats his crotch to wake him up. A
man hits his head on a bench, a boy hits a man's leg with a stick and a woman hits a
man's head with some lanterns. A few verbal threats; in one scene, a man forces
another to give non-candy items to a young trick-or-treater. A boy urinates in public
several times (sometimes we see the stream) and we see large wet spots when he urinates on
his bed and on a man's shirt while he's carrying him; we also see several men
standing in front of urinals. After eating lots of candy, a boy vomits (we see chunks of
food in the puddle of vomit); twice, a boy lets a glob of saliva hang out of his mouth and
then sucks it back in.
PROFANITY 5 - Lots of anatomical references, scatological references and
mild obscenities, some name-calling and a few profane finger gestures. [profanity glossary]
