Sex & Nudity
- There is strong sexual dialogue throughout the film, very explicit at times.
- There is a very brief scene of a woman wearing something revealing a lot of cleavage.
- In another scene a man and a woman kiss. Very soon after that the camera focus instantly on the buttocks of the woman. Although she is wearing pyjama pants that are not tight, her T string underwear has been lifted and reveals some of her naked tattooed buttocks.
Violence & Gore
- In a flashback from Afghanistan we see a lot of people being shot and killed (only a little blood)
- Out of frustration concerning a job application to the LAPD Jim starts hammering his fists against the steering wheel, when he discovers that another man is watching him, he gets out of the car and smashes a beer bottle on that mans windshield
- When Mike and Jim exit a liqour-store they see a man with a gun, chasing another man and he fires the gun a couple of times (but we don't see him hit anything)
