Being Human | 1994 | PG-13 | - 4.5.5

Robin Williams stars in five stories, each one taking place during a different historical period. He's either losing or looking for his family.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Several kissing scenes. Two sex scenes, but both parties are clothed. A man is shown urinating twice (we hear trickling). Men are shown in a large bath, exposing bare torsos.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A woman and two children are abducted, but not violently. There is a graphic description of how someone should stab another person to kill them. A man stabs himself and dies; we see the knife sticking out of his abdomen, and a spot of blood on his clothing. Another man pulls the knife out and the blade is covered with blood. There is a battle with swords and several men are shown bloody. A dead boy is found with his eyes open. People are shown with nasty looking soars from exposure to sun and wind. There is talk of cannibalism. The skeleton of a mule is shown on a barbecue spit. Two men are shown being hung; the scene is shot from a distance, but it is a long process, showing them struggling to get free, and kicking their legs about wildly.

LANGUAGE 5 - The F-word is used twice, along with two anatomical references and one mild profanity.

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.
