Note: The following text may contain spoilers

ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING is a comedy in which aliens, whilst deciding whether or not to destroy the Earth, temporarily grant an ordinary man the power to do absolutely anything.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k') and a single use of the discriminatory term 'wogs'. There is also moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'arsehole', 'bastard', 'bitch', 'bloody', 'dick', 'feck', 'pissed', 'shag', 'shit' and 'son of a bitch'.

Sex

Moderate sex references include the dialogue lines,"The bitch you were shagging last night", “Please can I shag your leg?” and "You mean f**k him right now?". In one scene it is implied that a man has been given an enormous penis.

Other issues include brief female breast nudity, during a scene in which a man is temporarily given the body of a woman, and some mild comic violence.
