BAYWATCH is a US action comedy in which a lifeguard teams up with a new recruit in order to foil a criminal plot. This is an extended version of the film released in UK cinemas.

Language

There is frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'). Milder terms include 'dick', 'bitch', 'balls', 'shit', 'bullshit' and 'asshole'. There is also use of the rude 'middle finger' gesture.

Sex

Frequent crude comic sex references include multiple images of a clothed erection when a man's genitals are caught between the slats of a wooden deck chair. Verbal references include discussions of 'dicks' and 'balls' and mentions of masturbation.

Nudity

There is prolonged visual focus on a corpse's naked penis.

Violence

A man is shot, causing a spurt of blood. Another character is killed in an explosion, resulting in aftermath sight of a bloody severed arm. There are occasional fistfights, and several people are knocked out by blows to their heads.

Other issues include moderate gory detail, including sight of a dead body that has been bitten by a shark. There are multiple visual and verbal references to drug dealing and drug misuse, but the film as a whole does not endorse such behaviour.
