The Banger Sisters | 2002 | R | - 7.2.6

Susan Sarandon and Goldie Hawn star as two best friends and former rock groupies who reunite after twenty years and realize that while one of them is still rocking out, the other has matured into middle age. Also with Geoffrey Rush, Erika Christensen and Robin Thomas. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - We clearly see a photograph of an aroused penis, as well as a glimpse of another. A young man and a young woman are having sex in a pool (we see a bit of thrusting and hear moaning) when they are interrupted by a young woman's mother; we see the couple nude through the water (we see flesh-toned forms) and we see the young man nude from the side, with his hand over his private parts. A woman (wearing a camisole and panties) reaches under a sheet toward a man, climbs on top of him, opens his shirt and kisses his chest. A young woman sits up in a truck (her head was in a young man's lap, and she was apparently performing oral sex). We see part of a woman's buttocks as she pulls on her pants. A woman is in a bath and is covered with bubbles; she rolls over and we see part of her bare leg and side. Throughout the movie women wear skin-tight outfits that reveal cleavage, bare backs and shoulders, and bare abdomens. Two women kiss a man's cheeks, and two women admire men and make comments about their physical appearance. People dance together in a nightclub. There are many discussions of sex (both human and insect procreation). A woman talks about the size of her breasts, and a young woman talks about body parts having been pierced. A dog sniffs insistently at a woman's crotch. A man and a woman lie in bed together separated by a row of pillows, and a woman propositions a man.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A woman knocks down a man with her car (she's driving very slowly). A man and two women struggle over a gun and a woman fires it into the air. A man talks about his plan to kill his father. A young woman is nearly unconscious after having taken drugs (specifically, acid) and she vomits on a woman and on a bed a few times (we see the goo and hear her retching). A woman flings food at her husband. A woman and her teenage daughter argue a few times and a young woman yells at her dog.

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.
