At First Sight | 1999 | PG-13 | - 5.1.3

Val Kilmer plays a blind man who's convinced by his new girlfriend, Mira Sorvino, to undergo experimental sight-restoration surgery. Based on a true story by Oliver Sachs, M.D. Also with Kelly McGillis, Nathan Lane and Steven Weber. [2:08]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Some sexual innuendo. Kissing, sometimes passionately. A couple has intercourse, and we see their bare backs, shoulders, arms and legs; we also see them embracing and kissing in the shower, but a glass shower door prevents us from seeing anything more than the shapes of their nude bodies. As a woman undresses, we see the bottom of her breast from a back/side angle; we also see her bare back and legs as a man massages them. One scene takes place in a topless bar; we see a few bare breasts, but mostly from a distance. A woman is seen in just her bra and underwear, then without her bra (we see her from the back).

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - A man walks into -- and shatters -- a plate-glass window and gets a small, bloody cut on his forehead. We see doctors performing surgery on a man's eyes, but we don't see any blood.

LANGUAGE 3 - Several scatological references (one is written) and several mild obscenities.

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.
