There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as use of milder terms ('bastard', 'ass', 'dickhead', 'crap', 'piss', 'balls', 'damn', 'God', 'screw').
A woman translates a Spanish phrase as 'my mother sleeps with your dog'. There are passing references to violence being a sign of sexual frustration, to a book entitled ‘Everything you Always Wanted to Know about Sex’, and to a woman making a man's 'jeans steam'. A bikini-clad woman dances in a bar.
There are moments of mild slapstick violence where people punch, kick and push each other over. There are also scenes where people hit a robot using an axe and a crowbar.

Cuts required to remove two uses of strong language for PG in accordance with the BBFC policy of not classifying two video versions of the same work in different categories. The work was previously classified PG in 1995.
