language
There is infrequent strong language (‘f**k’), as well as milder terms such as ‘dick’, ‘shit’, ‘ass’, ‘asshole’, ‘freaking’, ‘hell’, ‘damn’ and ‘God’.
sex
There are mild sex references in banter between a woman and a man about whether one is “checking out” the other and “looking at your ass”.
discrimination
The film presents a satirical take on modern-day Black people adapting their behaviour to make white people feel at ease with them in the interests of self-preservation in the face of racist animosity and violence. The comedy comes from the upending of racial tropes, highlighted in a scene where a Black man is briefly threatened in the mistaken belief that he has mugged a white woman, and the exposing of hypocritical denials of discrimination, which is clearly challenged by the film as a whole. There are uses of the historical racial term 'negroes'.
rude humour
A man touches the crotches of other men over their clothing in what are magical gestures intended to help with “male problems”.
suicide and self-harm
Model figures placed on the roof of a toy building block structure are referred to comically as “jumpers”.
