Sex & Nudity

  • The lingerie is very revealing.
  • A thug smacks around Slater's teenage daughter (and attempted rape may be implied). A car crashes through a building, and a large group of attractive women in lingerie flee the room. A couple of references to "premature ejaculation."

Violence & Gore

  • There is lots of violence in this movie, but a lot of it is played for comedic effect, as it pokes fun at the action genre. Many shootouts, car chases, and explosions take place, with some hand-to-hand fighting. Most of it is bloodless, but some of it may be a little much for younger viewers.
  • A house explodes and kills two police officers.
  • A large-scale car chase happens towards the beginning of the film, with several vehicles blowing up and several people getting shot. One car crashes into an ice cream truck, and an ice cream cone stabs a bad guy in the back of the head and kills him, but there is no blood, and it's meant to be funny.
  • A large shootout takes place in Slater's home, and he shoots and kills 3-4 men, electrocutes one, and beats up another. Gunfire destroys the place, but no blood or gore is shown. The main character is shot in the chest, but he recovers, and no blood is shown.
  • Slater shoots a villain in the chest.
  • Slater electrocutes a villain by zapping rain water on a rooftop that the villain is on. This is not very graphic at all.
  • Slater shoots a villain and he explodes, but no blood, body parts, or gore is seen.
  • A shootout takes place at a funeral, but no one is hit. It's meant to be funny.
  • A bomb is put into a corpse's body, and the corpse explodes, but the explosion happens in a tar pit, and no blood or gore is seen.
  • One character is hot in the back.
  • The main villain shoots a bad guy and he dies.
  • The violence is tongue-in-cheek and pastiches the action genre. An escaped mental patient is thrown off of a roof by a gunshot blast. In retaliation, he grabs Slater's son by the shirt collar and drags him along, killing them both. Slater's friend is found beaten half to death. An explosion kills two police officers and wounds Slater. A car chase ends with Slater killing of dozens of criminals. One scene in particular has a stick of dynamite exploding an ice cream truck, killing one of the bad guys when a cone his in the back of the head and impales him. Thugs invade Slater's estate while he's gone, holding the two people hostage. Slater's daughter beats a man to death with her bare hands. Slater them initiates a large shootout that results in the death of most of the thugs. When in the real world, the main bad guy kills several innocent pedestrians. Slater kills a bad guy on a theater roof by electrocuting him. After killing of the lead villian, Slater escapes seriously wounded, but manages to survive.

Profanity

  • At the end of the film, Slater's boss yells "doing a fucking tango up and down my Hershey highway" while hilarious and spoken quickly it's tough to catch but it's there
  • Lots of mild profanity scattered throughout the film.
  • "Cocksuckin'" is used once, which is surprising from a PG-13 movie, but it's said so quickly you most likely won't pick up on it at first.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Slater is seen smoking cigars continually throughout the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A young boy is threatened with a switchblade and then handcuffed while a robber ransacks his home.
