There is fleeting, undetailed sight of drug misuse as a couple snort cocaine. There is brief sexual harassment as a man gropes a woman's buttock over her dress, as well as other demonstrations of sexist attitudes directed at women. There is full frontal nudity outside directly sexual contexts. There are references to miscarriage. There is moderate rude humour. There are references to mental illness. There is moderate violence which is infrequent and undetailed. A man's altered speech after throat surgery becomes the subject of humour, but without malice.
