- Language/Profanity: God’s name is used several times, usually with reverence, but a few times the use of His name sounds too casual; a couple of profanities; a woman is accused of cussing in Spanish; a mispronunciation leads to a joke about gonorrhea; also, a joke about an accident that led to an “instant vasectomy” and lead poisoning on a man’s “privates”; discussion of prostitution, including multiple references to “whores”; a woman being arrested charges the officers with “giving her a mammogram.”
- Sex/Nudity: None; a woman says her three children have three different fathers; kissing.
- Drinking/Smoking/Drugs: A woman makes a joke about her “joints” and is shown smoking one; drug dealing is shown as a lucrative temptation.
- Violence: Woman throws a brick at a man; an angry woman is advised not to “go Gospel gangsta”; drug dealers brawl; a man is shot; woman slaps a hysterical man; a woman attacks police officers.
- Gambling: A man says he no longer gambles because he’s been “saved”; a man lives with past regrets over the destruction caused by a gambling addiction.
- Religion: Multiple references to God and His helpfulness, although a few mentions are played for laughs.
