Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that kids will hear much swearing and see fistfighting and gun battles, although there's no blood. There's also a good deal of stereotyping, as the story relies on swarthy foreigners as bad guys (this time it's Arabs who come out looking bad.) The breasts of "primitive" black woman are shown, and there are plenty of juvenile sexual allusions, including a joke about being stuck in a prison with inmates who want to be "proctologists." The leads also have sex, although there's no nudity involved.

Sexual Content

Joke about being stuck in a prison with inmates who want to be "proctologists." The breasts of "primitive" black woman are shown--like a National Geographic thrill for little boys. The leads have sex, but without showing nudity.


Fisticuffs and gun battles. No blood.


Plentiful, including "bastard," "g.d." "s--t," and "bloody bitch."

Social Behavior

Like Romancing the Stone and the Indiana Jones movies, the story relies on swarthy foreigners as bad guys. This time it's Arabs who come out looking bad.
