Wanting to prove himself a man, Rod engages in routine fights with his stepfather that involve weapons along with violent punches, kicks, beatings and property damage. Among other things, Rod’s stuntman activities include failed jumps, road racing, being blown up in an explosion, starting himself on fire and being held underwater until nearly drowned. Graphic descriptions of a stunt accident, a man being hit by a speeding van, his long, painful tumble down the side of a mountain and stunt-related injuries are also shown. Many of his stunts cause angry physical and verbal outbursts from innocent bystanders. Gun use, riot police and rampant looting are also depicted. Along with the graphic depiction of violent gags, the script includes erotic dance moves, numerous crude sexual jokes, bathroom humor and the brief depiction of animal copulation and bestiality. Following a confrontation with his father, Rod goes to the forest where he smokes and drinks. His team is shown with alcohol on several occasions and one team member experiences hallucinations after taking an illegal drug. Crude terms for anatomy, the description of sexual organs, profanities, vulgarities and a sexual expletive are also contained in the script.
