SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo and a few passionate kisses -- in one
scene, a man kisses a woman's cleavage. A man and woman talk and kiss passionately in bed
(we see his bare chest and their bare shoulders and backs). We see a woman's bare legs and
the bottom part of her bare buttocks as she puts on a short nightshirt. Several women wear
VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Four people are shot; we see a little blood either on
clothing, hands or next to the bodies. An unconscious woman with bloody cuts all over her
face and shoulders is wheeled into an ambulance. We see some blood stains on a carpet and
some puddles of blood. Lots of threatening with guns, some threatening with knives (in one
scene, a man holds a butcher knife to another's throat). A man puts a gun in his mouth
then we see a full-screen white flash and hear a gunshot. A man slams another's face into
a table repeatedly then punches him in the face a few times (the man's face is bloody). A
man is hit in the head with a garbage can lid several times. A few more people are punched
and slapped and one man is choked. A couple of tackles, shoves and scuffles. A man breaks
some television sets and throws them out a window. We see a body lying on the ground
(presumably the person was shot).

references, some mild obscenities and several insults. [profanity glossary]
