The Big Kahuna | 2000 | R | - 2.1.6

Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito and Peter Facinelli are three lubricant salesmen who meet at their company's hospitality suite at a Wichita sales convention to await the arrival of an important potential client. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Several instances of sexual innuendo (including references to sodomy and masturbation). A man asks another if he's a homosexual, a man describes (in non-graphic terms) his appreciation of a beautiful woman, and a man reads a Penthouse magazine (we don't see the cover, and the pages he's reading are text only).

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - A man pushes another onto a table and then they briefly scuffle on the floor. During a temper tantrum a man beats his arms and legs against couch cushions. In a dream, a man sitting on a presumably high balcony leans forward and falls off (we don't see the results of the fall).

LANGUAGE 6 - About 10 F-words, many anatomical references, several scatological references, lots of mild obscenities, a few insults, and some name-calling.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Sales conventions, salesmen, friendship, religious faith, honesty, character, sincerity, divorce, failure.

MESSAGE - We're all trying to sell something, and those who are truly honest acknowledge instead of hide their agenda.

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.
