Casual attitudes toward sexual relationships between men and women create the greatest content concerns in this film, although we are left with the impression the protagonist reforms to a more traditional lifestyle in the end. A couple of sequences depict sexual activity with sounds (including a shot of various pairs of feet extending over the edge of a bed implying multiple sexual partners) but no overt nudity is seen. Profanities are few, but do include one use of a crude term for sexual intercourse, and sexual innuendo is frequent. Violence is limited to a swordfight and some mild slapstick encounters.
