An extended scene with comedic use of an unknown drug presents the greatest concern for family viewing. Some audiences may be sensitive to stereotypical portrayals of Pakistanis who smoke drugs, an Iranian who mentions attending explosives school, and various Indian characters. Profanities number under a dozen, and include terms of Deity, mild expletives, and one possible hushed use of a sexual expletive.
