Violence: Violent confrontations are depicted during a robbery of a restaurant where the female perpetrators smash a cash register and other fixtures with a sledgehammer and threaten patrons with a toy gun. In other scenes, including a musical montage, characters are shown robbing people and threatening them with weapons. Gunshots are fired from one car into another during an altercation on the street. A woman is shot and we see her wound in detail during a later scene. Characters plan to murder another and in the process many bystanders are killed (blood and detail are seen). Characters steal a car and destroy it. A character is threatened and forced to suck (in a sexual manner) on the end of two loaded pistols.

Sexual Content: Many women are seen topless on a beach and at parties; in some circumstances men and women are touching other women in a sexual manner. Drugs are dispensed and snorted from near-naked bodies. Explicit sexual remarks and language are heard throughout. After bailing the girls out of jail, a man implies that he and two other males are interested in explicit sexual favors. A man and two women are seen naked in a swimming pool: they are engaged in sexual activity but no explicit nudity is seen. In a few scenes pairs of women are seen naked and engaged in sexual activity.

Language: Pervasive use of sexual and scatological expletives throughout, along with crude anatomical terms, drug terms and other profanities.

Drugs/Alcohol: Pervasive use of drug and alcohol use throughout. This is often linked with sexual activity. Gambling is depicted in one scene.
