Very few positive messages here. Willie learns that taking care of others can be just as rewarding as taking care of himself ... sort of.
Violence includes murder, characters being shot, attempted suicide. A man is killed when other characters conspire to murder him and then pin him between two vehicles. Police officers and a store robber engage in a gun battle. His partner, who flees the scene, is shot eight times by police, but survives. A lot of fighting, such as punching, kicking, shoving, and kicking in the groin. A man appears to be attempting suicide in his car in a garage, but he doesn't go through with it.
Very explicit sexual situations and references. A man and a woman -- both shown clothed from the waist up -- have sex in a car. They later have sex in a hot tub. A man and a woman have what's implied as anal sex in a department store's fitting room; their legs are shown under the door. A man hits on a girl during a pinball game; she's later revealed to be underage.
Extreme profanity and strong language throughout. Swearing includes many uses of "f--k," "motherf-----r," and "s--t," as well as "pr--k," "d--k," "p---y," "t-ts," "a--hole," "hell," "bitch," "goddamn," "for Christ's sakes," "oh my God," and "sweet Jews for Jesus."
