Sex & Nudity

  • A major character runs a nearby brothel. Several of the women are shown in provocative, revealing attire, but there is no nudity, and no visible or implied sexual encounters within this setting.
  • A young man schemes to purchase a young lady with whom he has fallen in love from the brothel.
  • There is a brief exchange which mentions a character's collection of "erotic pottery", though it is never shown.
  • A man tries to obtain a "love potion", which is strongly implied to increase sexual function.
  • Two men disguise themselves as women, and other men make aggressive advances on them.
  • A young woman's virginity is the topic of repeated discussion.
  • An "orgy" scene involves scantily clad women (including one who has her top removed while her back is to the camera) and closeups of women's cleavage.
  • A man repeatedly attempts to commit adultery.
  • A man takes a bath.
  • An older man and a young woman engage in passionate kissing.

Violence & Gore

  • In a scene at the arena, a gladiator is seen practicing with his flail by nonchalantly striking a row of slaves in the head, one by one. There is no depiction of gore apart from the slaves simply slumping over, presumably dead. Dialog in this scene remains darkly humorous.


  • No outright profanity, but much of the conversation his highly sexual in nature.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Soldiers revel at a feast that clearly involves wine-drinking.
  • Two potions are consumed: A passion potion that makes the drinker become very sexually aroused and a sleeping potion that takes effect deeply and immediately.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The character Miles Gloriosus is very intimidating, and makes a number of threats of violence.
  • There is a scene in which several major characters are pursued by armed gladiators whose intent is to cause harm.
  • A funeral is staged as part of an elaborate ruse, and the scene is generally somber and mournful, with subtle comic relief from the main characters.
