  • Language/Profanity:  None, but some racial-pride language about being Mexican might strike some as offensive; a reference to the “sweet smell of success” is followed by the quip, “smells like something else.”
  • Drugs/Alcohol:  None.
  • Sex/Nudity:  Young women at poolside wear bikinis; reference to a dog who isn’t “fixed”; romantic longings expressed by dogs include comments about “licking inside your ears,” and “chewing those hard to reach places”; some dog kisses.
  • Violence:  Dog fights, but no real violence is shown; Rachel tosses Chloe off her bed; an iguana puts a rat in its mouth and pretends to eat it; mountain lions threaten Chloe and Delgado; dog bites a man’s nose; Chloe falls into a deep opening in the ground and later appears to be dead.
