The most prevalent content concern in this movie is the inclusion of many mild-to-moderate profanities and terms of deity used as expletives. Bare chests and implied nudity are depicted when men change in a locker room (one of them wears women’s panties). There are also some sexual jokes and a minor character that makes home pornography (he is briefly shown filming a leather-clad woman, gagged and bound on a park bench). It is eluded that a machining accident causes a worker to lose his hand. Two men engage in a brief physical altercation. Seasickness causes some characters to vomit. On several occasions, men drink beer in a pub.
