Language

There is strong language throughout, including a single use each of 'c**ksucker' and 'motherf**ker'. There is also moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'ass', 'asshole', 'balls', 'bastards', 'bitch', 'bullshit', 'dick', 'dipshit', 'screwed' and 'son of a bitch'.

Sex

In one brief scene a man thrusts vigorously into a woman as they both stand fully clothed in a small computer server room. Referring to a tube of 'erectile cream' that the man has recently acquired, the women comments, "This stuff really works".

Other issues include infrequent drug misuse, moderate threat, moderate violence and moderate injury detail.
