Truth Be Told, The Invention of Lying Is Woefully Misguided
- Friday, October 02, 2009
- Drugs/Alcohol: Social drinking, including the frequent abuse of alcohol by Mark's suicidal neighbor, Frank (Jonah Hill). Another character drives while he's drunk, plus Frank suggests he might try killing himself by overdosing on drugs.
- Language/Profanity: A few uses of profanity, including an instance where a character, who is angry when it's suggested that God causes all the bad things that happen in the world, says "F*** the man upstairs!" There are also derogatory words used repeatedly for homosexuals.
- Sex/Nudity: When Mark first meets Anna, she tells him that his early arrival interrupted her while she was masturbating. One of Mark's friends says his biggest wish is to touch a woman's breasts. To get an attractive woman to sleep with him, Mark informs her that the world is ending, and they must have sex to prevent that from happening. But once they actually arrive at a hotel (where the sign says it's typically used for intercourse with someone you just met), Mark feels bad and eventually calls the whole thing off.
- Violence: Only of a comedic variety.
