Nudity

There is sight of breast and genital nudity when transsexual women perform in a strip club. There is also a scene in which a monkey and a man inadvertently lick another man's penis.

Drugs

There are scenes in which men snort cocaine.

There are scenes of comic violence, including a scene in which a man accidentally severs his finger. There are also uses of discriminatory language.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This film was originally shown to the BBFC in an unfinished version. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive an '18' classification but that the requested '15' certificate could be achieved by making two cuts to still images seen during the end credits. These cuts were to remove sight of a woman apparently penetrating her vagina with beads and sight of a woman, with her legs apart, ejecting a ping pong ball from her vagina. When the finished version of the film was submitted, these still images had been tightly reframed to avoid any explicit detail and the film was classified '15'.
