Sex & Nudity

  • On various occasions, we see the family's male dog humping a large, stuffed duck toy (at one point, the kids see this and call it "wrestling"). That includes it doing so in fast forward motion, and while "seated" back in a chair with the toy on top of him. In every scene the dog is panting with enjoyment and in some scenes his genitals are visible.
  • Twice, Michael and his wife have sex in fast forward, but all you see in the shadow on the wall. Which is him humping her (a shadow of a dog is also briefly shown humping Michael) This only lasts a few seconds.
  • At another point, the remote takes Michael and Morty to the "making of" his life, and they end up in a room with Michael's parents having sex, but once again, you don't see anything except the sheets moving. When Michael tries to get himself out of that room, he fast forwards to his birth.
  • Michael states that he and Morty are inside his mother's vagina, though there is nothing anatomical about the scene. He and Morty are standing in a dark room and there is light coming through a slit in the "wall."
  • You see a doctor's hands open the slit wider and then his face is revealed. Again, this is mostly innuendo and does not actually show a woman's vagina.
  • In one scene Michael is driving to work In fast forward but changes it to slow motion to see a busty woman jogging, thus seeing her breasts bounce in slow motion for a few seconds
  • No cleavage + short skirts (above knee) do not fall under Sex/Nudity
  • Donna wears a Pocahontas costume while playing with her son, and then offers to "play with" her husband at night while wearing the costume, implying sex.
  • At one point in the future, when Samantha is 14, Michael is shocked to see her grown up and makes a remark about when she got her boobs, prompting her to respond that she received hers around the same time that he received his (as he is overweight now and has breasts). Later when she is 27 he sees a picture of her and, believing her to be his son's girlfriend, calls her hot and chesty, only to be informed that it is his daughter.

Violence & Gore

  • The neighbor kid makes fun of Ben while playing catch with him (for not being able to catch the ball). Michael then freezes time, adjusts the boy's hand and glove, and then restarts time, causing the ball to hit the boy in the face and knock him to the ground.
  • When Ammer won't give Michael his promotion, he freezes time and hits Ammer repeatedly across the face.
  • Micheal pauses time and kicks Bill several times in the crotch, then unfreezes time, whereupon Bill promptly falls to the ground and screams.

Profanity

  • 1 "f" word, 10 "s" words, 3 for male genitals ("schmeckel" and "di**" with another possible one of the latter), 5 for breasts ("ti****" and variations of "boob"), 10 a****, 7 he**, 3 variations of crap, 3 da**, 1 S.O.B.
  • At one point, the main character uses "Motherf***" as an exclamation, though the scene is deliberately cut off mid-sentence and the only audio heard is "holy mother***" (this happens off-screen, so the word is also not revealed by the character's lips.)
  • 7 uses of "Oh my God," 3 of "God," 2 each of "G**d***," "My God" and "Oh God" and 1 use of "Jesus." Pretty heavy profanity for a PG-13 rated movie.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Thinking he's hallucinating while observing the remote's powers, Michael surmises that mass quantities of cough syrup and snack food means "You get acid."
  • When Michael is talking to the neighbor boy, he is smoking a cigar. When the boy's mother comes out, she says how she didn't know Michael smoked cigars and Michael tells her that he snatched it away from Kevin and that he thinks he smells marijuana inside it.
  • Michael's daughter asks him if he has smoked crack

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • In one scene, Michael calls Morty and he appears suddenly as a figure in his kitchen arch. This could be frightening. also, in the graveyard scene, Michael tries to attack Morty and Morty disappears and reappears, very suddenly and unexpected.

  • In the future, as an ailing Michael tries to get to his adult children, he faints in the hospital parking lot. After telling his ex-wife and his children he loves them, he dies (although it turns out to be a dream). This scene can be emotionally intense for some.
