MPAA Rated PG-13 for thematic elements involving substance abuse, some sexual content, partial nudity and language

Sex & Nudity

  • A man tells a woman that she is "top-heavy", which is probably a reference to her breasts.
  • The same woman "plays" with her breasts in another scene. She looks at her breasts in a mirror and tries to make them look bigger (she keeps her shirt on, though).
  • A woman undresses in a bathroom - her left breast is partially visible.
  • Some of the female characters show their bare midriffs.
  • There is adultery shown and mentioned.
  • A woman's bare buttocks is visible for a few seconds.
  • We see a poster of a topless woman on the front door of a theater, but her arms cover her breasts, so that they are not visible.
  • A young woman tells another woman: "All I know how to do is take off my clothes".
  • Nurses force a female patient to undress. The patient is shown topless, but we don't see her breasts because they have been blurred out.
  • A man and a woman have sex as part of a French porn film. We see the two have sex for a few minutes, but the sex is relatively mild and we don't see anything too erotic or graphic.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a brief and mild bar fight between a man and a woman (the bartender quickly breaks up the fight)
  • A man pushes a young woman and she falls to the floor
  • A brief and mild cat fight - no one gets hurt.
  • A woman grabs another woman by her neck and tries to choke her, but a third woman breaks up the altercation right away and no one gets hurt.


  • Two uses of "ass" and one use of "son of a bitch".
  • The homosexual slurs "fag" and "faggot" are also used in the movie, but infrequently.
  • No F- or S-words. The profanity in the film is much tamer than the profanity in the novel the film is based on.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Many of the main characters are shown smoking cigarettes and/or drinking.
  • Some of the main characters use drugs (mostly pills). One of the main characters ends up in a psychiatric hospital because of drug abuse problems.
  • Towards the end of the film, a young woman commits suicide by overdosing on pills.
  • The drug use in the film is probably the main reason for the film's PG-13 rating.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film can be tragic to some viewers, but is not really frightening or intense at all.
  • although the film obviously contains adult themes and topics (hence the PG-13 rating), the depictions of these themes is pretty mild by today's standards.
