Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Tower Heist...

Violence: A man vandalizes a car. Vigilantes plot and carry out a robbery. Characters use and threaten others with a gun (one shot is accidentally fired). A man is knocked unconscious when a maintenance cart is rammed into him. Characters are in peril of falling from heights. A man attempts suicide. A truck careens through the crowds during a parade. A sleep-inducing drug is put into some food. A police officer knocks down a man. Characters shoplift. An investment broker is accused of fraud.

Sexual Content: Frequent sexual references and innuendo are heard. Sexual slangs and anatomical terms for body parts are used. Sexual relationships (heterosexual and lesbian) are mentioned and crude discussions take place. Men look at a pornographic magazine (no overt nudity shown). An abstract painting of a naked woman is seen in the background.

Language: Pervasive use of scatological slang, mild and moderate profanities, vulgar expressions and terms of Deity. Infrequent racial slurs are heard.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Wine is sipped in a quiet home setting. Two main characters (one of whom is an FBI agent) drink until intoxicated at a bar.

Other: This movie glamorizes crime and defends law breaking by individuals who have been wronged.
