In a somewhat prolonged scene, the protagonist is depicted swimming with a topless female and engaging in strong sexual intimacy, with the scene later transitioning to the two of them in a house where they proceed to have sex. As the scene focuses mainly on the couples' upper bodies with the sexual activity depicted in an aerial shot, it is excessive, hence the R rating.
||The film contains occasional utterances of the expletive 'f**k' used by various characters out of frustration and/or in anger.
||There is a scene where drug snorting is depicted by two party-goers in a corner as the protagonist walks through the house party.
||'A Hologram for the King' is about an American salesman who travels to the Middle East to pitch a new holographic meeting tool to the King of Saudi Arabia, and also chronicles his romantic encounter with a female doctor.
