Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this tense "trouble in paradise" thriller has lots of bloody violence, from fistfights and beatings to shootings, stabbings, and even mutilation of a murder victim (shown on screen). There's also some drinking and drug use, a good bit of strong language (including "f--k"), and scenes with naked male and female buttocks (plus some implied toplessness). Parents also need to know that this review is for the theatrical rated version of the film.

Sexual Content

Nude male and female buttocks shown during a skinny dipping scene. Shielded female toplessness. Discussions of sex, including the offer of "a B.J."


Some grisly thriller violence, including graphic stabbings and shootings, plus fistfights, bloody wounds, and extreme moments like the mutilation of murder victims (shown on-screen), where teeth are removed and fingertips cut off to obscure a victim's identity. A character is shot point-blank but survives; viewers see the wound after the fact. An animal is hunted, eviscerated, skinned, and cooked. A victim is stabbed in the leg and pulls the knife out. A man, struck with a knife, has his hand split badly between his fingers (the wound is shown in detail).


Fairly strong language throughout, including "f--k," "motherf--ker," "s--t," "hell," "ass," "Jesus," "Christ," "crap," "craptastic," "oh my God," "goddamn," and more.

Social Behavior

Although the movie's overall message -- that you should always be careful (not "even on vacation" but "especially on vacation") -- could be seen as positive, it's couched in gore and sadistic violence.


Brands visible or mentioned by name include Trojan, Hummer, and Marvel Comics.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Chracters drink hard liquor and smoke marijuana. A psychotic killer is clearly fueled by crystal meth use.
