Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Wish I Was Here...

Violence: A man confronts another and threatens legal action, which results in a punch to the face. Various verbal confrontations are depicted. A man, who is dying from cancer, is seen hooked to medical equipment.

Sexual Content:

A man is seen from behind with his pants down (we see his naked posterior) looking at a computer: Sounds of pornography are heard, but his self-pleasuring is interrupted. A man and woman are seen on a bed having sex (they are both fully clothed). A married couple begin to kiss and embrace—in the next scene we see them in bed with bare shoulders. In a workplace a man begins talking to a female co-worker about his anatomy using crude terms, she asks him to stop but he continues. Later she confronts her boss about the situation and he tells her to “lighten up.” The harasser is eventually fired and legally compelled to attend a treatment clinic. A woman is seen in a slightly revealing tank top.

Language: Over two-dozen sexual expletives are heard, along with other scatological and anatomical slang terms.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Just prior to driving a man takes a brief drag from a marijuana cigarette. Social drinking is depicted. Medical professionals are seen smoking tobacco cigarettes and a female character remarks on the irony of them saving lives at one moment and then smoking the next.
