SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to fellatio)
and many kisses, some passionate. It's implied that a woman performs fellatio in a
car (we see her head duck below the window before the scene ends). We see a woman in a
slip lying in bed with a shirtless man, obviously post-coitus and discussing her past as a
prostitute. A girl gives a pair of panties to a man. A man playfully slaps a woman's
buttocks while they're dancing closely. We see a pregnant woman's bare breasts
twice (once while she's showering and once while she's in labor) and her bare
belly a few times; also, we see a woman in her bra and panties, a woman in a bra and the
upper part of her thong-covered buttocks and lots of women in cleavage-revealing tops.
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - We see a man die, presumably from a drug overdose, after
taking several labored breaths (a woman sees him in pain but ignores him; the scene is
more comical than dramatic). A woman slaps a man's chest, a man slaps another several
times and a man pushes another against a fence. A woman talks of being raped, but we later
learn she was lying.
PROFANITY 10 - About 60 F-words, a profane finger gesture, lots of
anatomical and scatological references, several mild obscenities and an insult. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Hollywood, musicians, actors, fame, deception, lying,
infidelity, uncertain paternity, drug use and abuse, rehabilitation, self-help.
