This story of a man who is unable to finish anything he starts provides a positive message about determination and endurance. Unfortunately only a minimal amount of time is spent on this element while the bulk of the film wanders through scenes of sexual innuendo and discussions of male genitals. An out-of-wedlock pregnancy is discussed and the child becomes a main character in the story. One male character is seen naked from the rear twice and strategically placed objects in a change room obscure the view of another nude man. A man appears to be masturbating when he uses a mannequin’s hand to scratch his clothed genital area. Language includes two uses of a sexual expletive, (including one in a sexual context), along with two depictions of raised middle fingers (one by a child). Other profanities, crude anatomical terms, names of Deity, and a derogatory statement toward an American are heard. Violence includes two men fighting with fists and objects, a shoplifter who taunts a security guard, car theft and a scene where a man pops a huge blister on his foot. Characters smoke and drink in this film, although it is suggested that trying to run a marathon while continuing these habits is a bad idea. A man drinks raw eggs.
