TOWER HEIST is a comedy in which a concierge and a street criminal team up to recover money stolen from them by their disgraced boss.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k') as well milder terms such as 'bitch' and 'wanker'. A character uses the discriminatory term 'bumbaclot'. A black character uses the term 'nigger' without racist intent.

Sex

Sex references include a character stating 'I seek lesbians out - they got the nicest titties', and in another scene the same character complains 'You brought me out here for some freak shit - you wanna stimulate my nutsack!'. There are also glimpses of a Playboy magazine in the film, but without sight any clear nudity.

The film also contains a brief threat of suicide as a depressed man walks in front of a subway train, but he is stopped just in time and recovers without harm.

There is some shoplifting seen in one sequence, but the focus is on the incompetence of the characters rather than the criminal activity.
