Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • Allan and his monkey trainer Melanie eventually become lovers and their first sexual encounter is shown. Because Allan is a quadriplegic and is paralyzed from the neck down, he must give Melanie oral sex. He lies flat on his back. She is seen bending over him in bed and supporting herself by holding on to an overhead hoist; she lifts herself with it so that he can kiss her genital area, and as her excitement builds, she grips it more tightly. Allan is shown kissing one of her breasts, which are shown, as well as her genitals, which are not shown, although she is nude from the waist down. Neither he or she are shown when the actual orgasm occurs; only the frantic reactions of the jealous service monkey. However, we hear all the moaning and heavy breathing.

Violence & Gore

  • A man attempts suicide by suffocating himself with a plastic bag over his head.
  • There is a lot of violence in this film. Allan's service monkey has telepathic abilities and can read his thoughts. The monkey violently murders everyone that Allan has a grudge against or hates. Allan begins to suspect this and eventually kills the monkey by biting her neck with his teeth and thrashing his head back and forth in a violent manner, repeatedly slamming her against the handles of his wheelchair and snapping her neck before finally relinquishing his bite.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Allan has a dream in which his two-timing girlfriend and his doctor burn to death in a house fire; he later discovers that this really has happened.
