Anaconda | 1997 | PG-13 | - 4.8.5

A huge snake attacks and kills a group of filmmakers. With Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight and Eric Stoltz.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A couple make-out and the man pulls the woman's shirt down exposing the top of her breast, which he then caresses. Native people sport loincloths and the women's bare breasts are shown. Several times we can vaguely see women's nipples through nightshirts and tank tops. Kissing and sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Many scenes of the snake chasing people. The snake kills a panther and leaves the panther's eyeball lying on the ground. A tracheotomy is done on a man using a knife; there's some blood and later a man twists his finger in the tracheotomy hole (some blood gushes out). As the snake eats a victim we see the inside of the snake from the victim's perspective. The snake chews on a corpse's neck (some blood). A man puts a pick through the snake's head (some blood).The snake spits up a dead monkey and a slightly chewed-up man. The snake kills some people by breaking necks and crunching bones; there's some blood (neck, eyes, mouth). The snake drags a victim through the water and there is blood on his face. A monkey paw drips blood into a bucket. A couple of people are strangled. The outline of a man's face is seen through the snake's belly after he's been eaten. A snake bites a man's finger. Animals are shot and injured or killed, and one catches on fire. A man is stabbed in the leg with a knife. A few fistfights and a couple of slaps. A few corpses are seen. A couple of explosions.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
