SEX/NUDITY 4 - Lots of sexual innuendo. Some passionate kissing and brief
shots of a clothed man and woman caressing each other in bed. We see a man and woman
moving rhythmically underneath covers and it's implied that another man joins them. Twice,
we see the faces of two people as they make love (with lots of movement and heavy
breathing); in one of the scenes we briefly see their torsos moving rhythmically, and in
the other we see the man's bare posterior as he gets out of bed. A man tells his friends a
story about a woman performing oral sex in a car while her young child was in the
backseat. A man begs a woman to give him oral sex; he unzips his pants and appears to be
touching and briefly stroking his penis. We see a few scantily clad women.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man head-butts a woman, repeatedly slaps a man and
pushes a woman out of a moving car (in a later scene, she's limping and has an abrasion on
her arm). A guy tells others that he hit his wife, and in a different scene he says he hit
a man so hard he knocked him down. We see a man spit up, a scuffle, and some type of
surgery on TV (we briefly see some pink tissue or flesh). We learn a man committed
PROFANITY 10 - About 90 F-words, many anatomical references, lots of
