– A shirtless man is lying on a bed (we see his bare shoulders, chest and abdomen) and a woman wrapped in a sheet (we see her bare shoulders) climbs into bed next to him and they kiss (sex is implied). A shirtless man is shown sitting on the bed (his chest and abdomen are bare) while a woman is dressed in the bedroom (gender is implied) and she is seen in a bralette and skirt (her cleavage is visible and her abdomen is bare); she picks up her panties and tucks them under her skirt (no nudity shown). A man and a woman kiss and lie down on a bed, the woman lies on top of the man and takes off her blouse and we see her wearing a bralette (her bare back, cleavage and shoulders are visible).
A young man talks about having two girlfriends and having sex in several scenes. A young man plays guitar in a band and another young man says, "He gets all the girls." A man says that a certain basketball play excites him. A woman talks on a dating app and says, "A woman has needs." When discussing a previous sexual encounter, a woman says to a man, "You did the work." A man asks a woman where their relationship is going and she replies, "It's just sex." A young woman asks a man if he has girlfriend problems and he says he doesn't think he's ugly; the young woman tells him, "You're not McConaughey."
Several young men are shown with towels around their waists in a locker room and bathroom. A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage, and the sheer fabric of the skirt reveals the silhouette from her legs to her hips. A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage.
A dog strokes a man in the groin and the man backs away.


– A drunk man leaves a bar and drives away: speeds at a red light, crashes into a parked police car, we see him photographed, locked in a cell and then in court where he is sentenced to community service.
One man hits another man hard in the stomach and he falls to the ground. Two men argue while practicing a basketball game and when one tells the other to get off the court, he pushes him and the man falls to the ground (team members and crowd are shocked). A man is hit hard on the side of the head by a basketball and claims (jokingly) that he has suffered a concussion. A man punches another man in the arm trying to stop him talking to a judge in court. A young woman pushes a trainer and says, "If you come near me, I'll remove your [anatomical term] too."
A man yells at another man and accuses him of kicking a basketball player in the buttocks and injuring him in the tailbone. A woman yells at a man and tells him he doesn't participate in a conversation about his brother. A man and a woman criticize each other about careers and relationships. A young man refuses to play basketball for a man and we later find out that the young man was seriously injured in a car accident while driving while intoxicated and refuses to play for the man because he was driving drunk. A young man refuses to take a shower (people complain about the smell) and then we learn that he almost drowned and is afraid of the water. People on the bus interrupt other passengers and distract the driver; one person throws gum at the back of the driver's head and hits him, causing the driver to stop abruptly, another person vomits on a woman (we see goo splashing onto her shirt and face) and then it is shown to cyclists on the side of the road. . People insult and belittle people with Down syndrome in several scenes. A man pretends to have injured his leg so that a young man can play basketball. A man talks to a young woman in a loud voice and she confronts him and says, "I have Down syndrome, I'm not deaf." A young man asks a man if he still drinks and drives drunk. A young man is fired for confronting his boss for booking him so he can't play basketball with his team. A woman tells a man that she doesn't think he's being honest because "the court ordered him to care." A woman accuses a man of promoting a hostile work environment. Several young men drag a young woman through the hotel corridors on snow skis. Several people on a basketball team are alarmed by the height of members of the opposing team, and the coach says, "We're in trouble." A young man talks about working at an animal shelter and saving animals that are about to be put down. A young man hugs a man and introduces himself as his "Homie with an extra chromie".
A young man has a dislocated finger during a basketball game and we see the finger bend unnaturally; he pulls it out, we hear a squeak and it snaps back into place. Two young men run out of a bathroom screaming that there is a rat in the shower; a man investigates and sees it is a mouse and tells a young man how he can help him out of the drain before the mouse drowns (the mouse is fine). A dog strokes a man in the groin and the man backs away. A man farts while another stretches his leg in a locker room.
