Made long before movie ratings, this film shows characters smoking in nearly every scene (amazing they still had the lung capacity to blow those horns!). Male chauvinistic attitudes are also prominent, with men referring to women in derogatory terms and hunting analogies. During a tussle a few women begin slapping each other, and very mild sexual references are inferred when an unmarried man and woman discuss what they did during their last date. Finally, one character uses an expletive that could be interpreted as a term of Christian deity.
