Danny DeVito's character, in Spanish, talking on the phone, uses a Spanish word that I believe is a slur.

Not much. A busted lip, some minor cuts. Right near the end of the film (about 1.5hrs in) Joan's hand is cut by a knife. The only true gorey bit of the movie happens shortly afterwards when the cop's hand is eaten by a crocodile.
