THAT SINKING FEELING is a comedy about a group of unemployed young men in Glasgow who hatch a criminal plan to make some money.

LANGUAGE
There are two clear uses of strong language ('f**k'). A third use of strong language is mouthed, but not audible.

NUDITY
There is a scene in which a security guard is shown reading a pornographic magazine in his office. The buttocks of a woman are visible but the images are not seen in detail. There is also a photo of a topless woman on the wall.

SUICIDE
Three young male characters discuss committing suicide by various methods. However, the focus of the scene is on the comic situation the characters are in, rather than any potential suicidal thoughts.

There is occasional sight of young characters smoking cigarettes. There is also a scene in which a security guard and a man dressed as a woman are walked in on by a friend, and the guard buttons the top of his shirt while his friend stands with his hands on his skirt, looking embarrassed. No further detail is shown.
