  • Truman's bare buttocks are shown (as a toddler on the beach).
  • There's a passionate kiss between two characters.
  • Man is scene in a bathtub few times. Bare chest is visible.
  • A married couple kiss and intend to have sex. The camera cuts away, and two viewers complain about them never showing the sex scenes.

Violence & Gore

  • Some guards forcibly remove Truman from a building when he accidentally sees part of "the set". Truman then whacks a man on a ladder with his briefcase just to see if it elicits any sort of reaction.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Truman and his friend occasionally drink beer while contemplating life, and the friend always shows up at Truman's house with a six-pack of beer.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A plot is about a life of a man 24/7 filmed. This may cause paranoia to some people.
  • Although it's staged, we see a flashback to when Truman tried to help his father, but then had to watch him drown off their boat during a violent storm.
  • Some suspenseful moments as Truman attempts to challenge the limits of his world: trying to drive over a bridge, driving through a wall of fire, stepping in front of moving traffic, battling a conjured weather storm in a sailboat, etc.
  • A scene near the end might be upsetting to some.
