Violence involves the theme of dishonesty and some mild verbal threats. Sexual content is limited to a woman who pulls a tissue from her blouse (presumably in her bra) to blow her nose, a couple of very brief moments of innuendo and characters seen in a revealing skirt and swimwear. A comment about drugs is heard. A few portrayals of social drinking are included.
