Sex & Nudity


Many characters appear wearing revealing outfits (notably the "Ballet 2000" dancers depicted on the DVD cover) but there is no real nudity. During one song, a woman seduces a man while singing in poetic detail about it - essentially about the climax. She removes her clothes and his, but only her upper back and his bare torso are actually shown. This scene is intercut with a dance scene in which several couples paired up on mats around a room mimic sex through choreography. Again, no nudity.

Violence & Gore


A man is viciously beaten by industrial thugs. Later he is bruised, and there is blood visible on his face.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking


A woman takes a pill from a virtual stranger. Two big party scenes feature alcohol being consumed in great quantities.

Frightening & Intense Scenes


A fantasy musical number in "Hell" could potentially be intense - it shows hanging victims dangling from the ceiling while dancing, two-headed characters, vampires, etc. - but it is done for camp. At times, the villain is made to look like Satan, but again, it is done for camp.
