Blast from the Past | 1999 | PG-13 | - 2.2.5

After living in a fallout shelter his entire life, Brendan Fraser finally meets the real world -- and real girl Alicia Silverstone -- when his parents ask him to buy supplies for the next decade. Co-starring Christopher Walken, Sissy Spacek, Dave Foley and Joey Slotnick.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo. A few kisses. A transvestite propositions a man. We see several women in cleavage-revealing tops and several women in bathing suits; one brief scene takes place in an adult book store and we see -- from a distance -- many scantily clad woman on video and magazine covers (no nudity is visible).

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A jet crash-lands on a vacant house and we see it explode (no one is injured). We see a person vomit. A man clutches his chest and passes out; we see him recovering in bed in later scenes. In self defense, a man punches another three times. A man backs a truck into a car (no one is injured).

LANGUAGE 5 - 1 F-word, a few anatomical references, several scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and several insults.

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.
