SEX/NUDITY 7 - We see photographs of fully nude men in several scenes (revealing their genitals). A man wears a towel wrapped around his waist and we see his bare chest and abdomen. A man is bare-chested while dressing and a woman wears a bra and panties while dressing. A woman's dress is low cut revealing cleavage.
► A man walks into a club where a bare-chested man watches a man and a woman kiss passionately; other people gather around a bar and watch a man and a woman in silhouette kissing passionately and caressing each other.
► A man and a woman argue, he shoves her against a wall, they kiss passionately, and they pull at each other's clothing, but they are interrupted by a telephone call.
► Two men kiss tenderly and they are seen by the fiancée of one of them. A man and a woman hug, and a man kisses a woman's hand.
► A woman walks in on her husband and another woman and they're sitting close together, talking in hushed tones and laughing (it is suggested that they are having an affair).
► A woman admires a younger man, and when she is told that he is gay she says that her husband is having an affair with another woman. A woman says of a man: "He was sleeping with my boyfriend." A woman says, "I think my mom slept with him." A man tells another man, "You have to sleep with her." A man says of a man, "I slept with him once, maybe twice." A woman asks her fiancé if he slept with a man. A man talks about a woman having kissed a man who was not her husband.
► A line from a play is performed as "...plucked my nipple from his boneless gums." A man is assigned to write a piece on "artists influenced by their lovers." An actress onstage says, "unsex me here." An actor auditioning for a role asks, "Is the character gay?" A man talks about a woman being attractive.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man grabs a woman's bag on a subway platform, and another man grabs the thief, who then stabs him in the stomach (we see the man with a bloody spot on his sweater).
► A man and a woman argue, and he shoves her against a wall (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details). A woman forces her way into an emergency room and a nurse threatens to call security. A man kicks a door down.
► A line from a play is performed as "...dashed the brains out," referring to murdering a child. We see photos of children with what look like large tattoos on their stomachs.
