This PG-13 film features many scenes of boxing violence, with blood in some instances. Mild and moderate profanities are heard throughout. No sexual expletives are used, however sexual remarks are made on a few occasions, like when a man mistakenly assumes (thanks to his friends) that a woman is a prostitute. A couple of scenes show alcohol use in bars, including an instance when a man is drinking because he is depressed. One character attempts suicide due to stress. Depictions of betting on boxing matches are included. Many scenes have superior officers verbally intimidating “plebes” (freshmen).
