RULES DON'T APPLY is a US drama about the relationships between a young actress, a young chauffeur and the billionaire Howard Hughes.

Sex

A man and a woman roll around on the floor, fully clothed, as they kiss and embrace. In another scene, a woman removes some of her clothing as she sits on top of a man but the scene ends after this.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language and some milder bad language.

Other issues included a brief reference to abortion during a conversation between a woman and her doctor. There are also some references to a man's addiction to prescription medication.
