Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Queen...
One quick and somewhat difficult to understand use of a sexual expletive is the greatest content concern in this film. A few other mild expletives and one use of a scatological term are heard. Sexual impropriety is vaguely discussed. Violence is limited to a scene depicting a dead deer with its head removed. One person is shown with what appears to be an alcoholic drink.

The film Paparazzi takes a look at the darker side of being hunted by celebrity hounds.
