SEX/NUDITY 5 - We hear a woman moaning and also hear rhythmic sounds coming from a bedroom; a woman hears the sounds and decides that it's her husband having sex with another woman (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).
► A husband and his wife argue while lying in bed (he's bare-chested in boxers and she wears a short negligee that reveals cleavage and bare legs): the husband pins the wife to the bed, holding her hands down, and begins to kiss her, which stops the argument (sex is implied). A wife pinches her husband's bare nipple.
► A husband climbs into bed with his wife and they cuddle, she utters another man's name, then changes the subject and invites her husband to join her for a bath (he agrees but we do not see anything else). A husband (he's bare-chested) climbs into bed with his wife, they argue, they talk, and she holds him.
► Throughout the movie, women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage and bare shoulders. A woman wears a bikini in a few beach scenes. Several men are shown bare-chested in beach scenes. A man is shown wearing boxer shorts and is bare-chested. A man is shown wearing pajama pants and is bare-chested. We see a bare-chested man with a towel wrapped around his waist in a locker room scene.
► A man, wearing a chest revealing jump suit and glitter, jumps out of a cake while the song "It's Raining Men" plays (a man's wife arranged the event as an insult during their divorce dispute).
► Husbands and their wives kiss in several scenes.
► A woman tells another woman that she hears sexual noises coming from her bedroom when the woman is at work. A wife accuses her husband of having sexual affairs with women, in their own bed. A man accuses another man of not "taking care of his business" (meaning impregnating his wife). A husband talks about having "make up sex" with his wife and a remark is made about "pinching nipples" and that the sex can be rough. A husband asks his wife if she is sleeping with another man and she admits to a non-sexual relationship, but states that she thinks of the other man when they are having sex. A woman asks another woman if her husband has been satisfying her sexually. A man asks another man about his sex life with is wife and recommends spanking to liven things up. A man talks to a woman about the first time they had sex.
► A husband tells his wife that her undergarments are "sexy." A woman flirts with an older man, and his wife becomes enraged and yells insults at both of them in a crowded airport. A wife talks about waiting for her current husband to come back from the war, and when he returned he married someone else.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - We hear a woman moaning and also hear rhythmic sounds coming from a bedroom, a woman arms herself with a handgun, enters the room, fires many rounds into the wall above the bed and we see a man and a woman hiding under the covers (no one is harmed).
► A husband and his wife argue bitterly, he tries to force her to drink alcohol, he grabs her, throws her into a chair, he forces her onto a couch, holds her down, she tries to bite him, he tries to kiss her and she is able to free herself. A man punches another man in the face and he falls to the floor.
► A car speeds into a street and is t-boned by a truck (we understand that the car's driver was killed and we see people mourning his passing).
► A wife screams at her husband and swings a golf club, shattering many glass top tables, shelves and fragile items. A man throws a flowerpot through a glass door shattering it. A man sets a photo album on fire (we see the photos burning).
► A dead woman's ashes are scattered on a beach, the wind catches them and they land on another woman (she yells and runs into the ocean to wash them off).
► Throughout the movie, a husband and his wife argue bitterly with insults and degrading language. A wife threatens to shoot her husband in the buttocks. A woman flirts with an older man, and his wife becomes enraged and yells insults at both of them in a crowded airport. A woman threatens a man with violence. A wife barges on a live TV show and accuses her husband of having sexual affairs with other women; he puts her over his shoulder and carries her off the set and they continue to argue. A husband and his wife argue about his not having a job.
► A man talks about someone having committed suicide. A woman remembers her husband having slammed her into a wall, leaving a hole, and bloodying her nose. A young girl tells her younger brother what divorce is and details how two people break up because they hate each other, how they split up everything and the person with the best lawyer wins.
