THE NIGHT BEFORE is a comedy about three friends who embark on a wild night of partying on Christmas Eve.

Sex

There are strong and crude references to sexual activities, including oral sex and ejaculation, and descriptions of sexual organs. There is also a scene in which a couple have frantic sex in various positions in a toilet cubicle, but the scene contains no graphic detail.

Drugs

There are scenes featuring drug use, including cannabis being smoked, cocaine being snorted, pills being taken and a character who is a professional sportsman injecting himself with a performance-enhancing drug. There are also verbal references to drug use and drug dealing. The drug use is presented in a comic manner, but is also shown as being irresponsible and leading to behaviour that creates problems for characters and gets them into trouble.

Nudity

Brief still images of a man posing with an erect penis are seen on a mobile phone; the images become the source of a comic misunderstanding. There is also brief female nudity in a scene set in a strip club where a woman dances topless.

Language

There are three uses of very strong language ('c**t') and frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').
