Twice-married and -divorced, Burton and Taylor still clearly care for each other, which sends a clear message about longterm, realistic adult friendship. This message is counteracted by their destructive habits and behavior.
At one point, Burton and Taylor have an emotional slap fight -- she hits him twice, he threatens her but does not hit her back.
Many double entendres and discussions of sex -- at one point Burton and Taylor have illicit sex while Burton is engaged to someone else. Some sexual talk: references to Taylor's "t-ts."
Some language throughout including "f--k" and one "c--t." Many British curses: "bloody" and "bugger."
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Many characters drink onscreen and act drunk. Taylor makes references to using pills for a medical condition, but slurs her words and acts high. Burton smokes nearly constantly onscreen.
