Language

Moderate bad language includes uses of 'bitch' and 'whore'. There is also milder bad language, including uses of 'dick', 'freakin', 'frickin', 'crap', 'piss', 'shit', 'ass' and 'butt'.

Drugs

There are some passing references to drugs, including crack and LSD.

Sex

There is a implied group sex scene, which lacks any strong detail and contains many comic elements. There are also some comic references back to the scene, such as to a person having been sandwiched between two Finnish dwarfs and a tribesman.

There is a scene in which it is reported that a woman has been crushed during an orgy, which is illustrated by brief sight of a mass of bodies, with no clear sight of any nudity or sexual activity.

There is a comic scene in which a bulge can be seen under a sheet as a man receives a massage.

There is also brief sight of 'bondage' gear being worn during a fashion shoot, including a ball gag in a man's mouth, as another model rides on his back.

There are some moderate verbal sex references, including to 'servicing yourself ten times a day'. There is also sight of people's clothed backsides and crotches being grabbed at and pinched.

There is some undetailed comic violence, including a kick to the head and a head being slammed into a table. There is no clear sight of impacts. There is also an undetailed shooting.

In one comic scene, some models hose themselves in petrol rather than water, and are then consumed in an explosion, without any injury detail.
