BBFC Ratings info

Maturity Rating Reason

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
There is a scene where Lane and Beth are in a car and they are under a blanket and moaning can be barely heard. In this scene, we hear Beth complaining "It broke??" suggesting a condom. Lane accidentally pulls off a womans dress and her underwear is shown. Lane walks in to his brothers room and there are a couple of woman in their underwear.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
Comedic, slapstick violence. Lane keeps trying to commit suicide and failing, to comedic effect, using various methods (hanging, carbon monoxide poisoning, etc.)

Profanity Reason
3 uses of sh*t, 1 use of a**, and there is some mild vulgar talk.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
A few people smoke. It is implied that one older character is a regular drinker. One character is constantly trying to get high by snorting things. But since there are no drugs around, he snorts snow, gelatin, anything except drugs.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
The so-called "frightening" scenes are done in a comedic fashion.
