Sex & Nudity


A woman is topless in one scene; in many others, she wears outfits that essentially stop at the waist, showing off the hem of her buttocks. A scantily-clad woman lies suggestively on a bed while trying to tempt a man; he eventually gives in and climbs onto the bed with her (sex is implied). A man sitting across from a woman slowly parts her legs and puts his hand between them. She climbs into his lap as he kisses her neck and they fall to the floor with her straddling him. She takes off her jacket, leaving her in just a slip and garters; he kisses her breasts and they start to lie back but are interrupted. He flails beneath her as she laughs before being pulled off. A woman straddles a man handcuffed to a bed (sex is implied). A woman drops her pants, leaving her in a sheer leotard (the camera focuses on her butt), and asks a man to dance with her. They dance for a moment; he lays her on a bed and begins to kiss her thighs before they are interrupted.

Violence & Gore


A woman tries to garrote a man inside a car, and both fall out of it onto the street. The man gets away, pulls a gun and shoots the woman in the arm (bloody and with screams of pain). He checks to see if she's dead and she continues struggling, grabbing him between the legs; he knocks her out by punching her in the face. Two men cut off another man's toe (offscreen). While a man is driving, a woman in the backseat suddenly wraps her legs around his neck, causing him to lose control of the car; it swerves wildly before crashing into a pole, knocking the man out. The woman kicks out the car's windshield and crawls onto the hood before escaping. Man shoots a woman several times. Fair amount of blood seen. A woman tells a man she intends to kill his wife; in response, he grabs a gun from another man and shoots her several times, with graphic and bloody results. He then turns the gun on himself but discovers he's out of bullets, causing him to scream in anguish. A woman forces a man at gunpoint to dig a hole in the ground, into which she shoves a second, bound and gagged man. After the hole is filled she fires several shots into it, just to make sure. A man shoots a woman several times (bloody but not graphic), only to discover he has killed a different woman than the one he intended to; after he flees, his intended target takes the body, uses a saw to cut one of its arms off (off-screen), then sets it on fire to cover her tracks.
