Bodies Bodies Bodies | 2022 | R | – 4.7.10

content-ratingsWhy is “Bodies Bodies Bodies” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “violence, bloody images, drug use, sexual references and pervasive language.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes several passionate kissing scenes between men and women and two women, several scenes of violent acts that lead to people dying with bloody wounds shown, a couple of scenes of seemingly accidental deaths with blood shown, people using cocaine and Xanax, many arguments, and over 140 F-words and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.


When a group of friends (Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Rachel Sennott, Chase Sui Wonders, Pete Davidson, Myha’la Herrold and Lee Pace) gather at one of their parents’ homes, they decide to play a game that includes assigning someone to be murdered and the other people to figure out who did it. When the game starts, they don’t realize how actually bloody the evening will become. Also with Conner O’Malley. Directed by Halina Reijn. [Running Time: 1:34]

Bodies Bodies Bodies SEX/NUDITY 4

 – Two women kiss passionately and one touches the other’s clothed crotch; she pulls away and we next see them lying on the ground talking. Two women kiss and hug. A man and a woman kiss and the man bites the woman’s tongue twice (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details). Two couples hug and kiss in a few scenes. Two women dance together and move closer to each other and another woman watches, and seems jealous.
 A man and a woman argue about the woman sharing information about their relationship (particularly about intimacy) with other people and the man becomes upset (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).
 A man sits on the bottom of a swimming pool and a woman holds onto him (seemingly competing with another couple to see who could hold their breath longest). A woman professes her love to another woman and the other woman does not return the sentiment. A woman tells another woman to be careful with her girlfriend. People describe a man as being “hot.” A man describes himself as looking like he is sexually active (using crude terms). Three women and a man dance while recording themselves and one woman asks if they are going to twerk.
 Women wear low-cut tops that reveal cleavage in several scenes throughout the movie. Men and women wear swimsuits around a swimming pool and we see the men’s bare chests, abdomens and backs and the women’s cleavage, abdomens, backs, legs to the hips and the buttocks of one woman wearing a thong bikini. While searching for a man, a woman picks up another woman’s bra and the owner of the bra says, “I don’t think he’s hiding in my bra.”

Bodies Bodies Bodies VIOLENCE/GORE 7

 – A man roars and pounds on his chest scaring women in the room with him; a woman lunges toward him with a knife and he knocks it out of her hand, two women jump on the man and he elbows one woman and throws another against a wall, and when he moves toward one of the women he is struck in the back of the head with a kettlebell (we see blood and he gurgles, and when he is struck again he falls to the floor dead). A woman holds a gun on another woman and backs out of a room and up a flight of stairs with the other woman following her; they argue and struggle over the gun, it fires a few times (no one is struck) and another woman throws one woman over a balcony and she crashes to the floor below (we see her limbs twisted and blood on her head and face) and she fires the gun toward the two women standing on the balcony (no one is shot). Several women wrestle over a gun and scream until it fires and a woman lies dead with a bullet hole in her throat and a lot of blood pooling on and around her.
 A blood-soaked man slams against a patio window and falls back on the ground; several people gather around him trying to decide what to do, when they realize that he has a very bloody wound on his throat and he is likely dying. A woman walking through a dark house trips over a body and we see it is a blood-soaked woman (we see blood splatters and smears on the wall and staircase nearby). A man lies on the floor motionless and when people in the room think he’s actually dead they panic until another man taps his crotch with a beer bottle and the man on the floor flinches.
 A woman points a gun at several people in a room as they argue; the woman shoots a woman in the leg and she screams in pain (we see some blood). A video shows a man using a sword to open a bottle of champagne and he accidentally hits himself in the throat with the sharp blade; he falls to his knees holding his neck and we see some blood.
 As a game starts the people participating sit in a circle and slap each other in the faces (some harder than others) and one man punches another man hard in the face; the lights are turned off through the house, people walk through alone searching for a pretend murder victim and a woman is startled when a man pops out from the shadows, and then runs up a flight of stairs. A woman holds a meat cleaver and argues with others in the room. A man lying on the floor wearing a light therapy mask sits up startled when several women surround him; the women scream and scatter and they argue about what the man is doing. A woman yells at another woman and pushes her out a patio door into a heavy rainstorm. A woman arms herself with a hammer. A woman holds a gun on another woman and asks for her phone; the threatened woman throws the phone and they wrestle over it, falling into a swimming pool.
 A woman finds a long sword with blood on the blade and places it on a table to show others. A man punches a fragile item on a mantle and it shatters, and he storms out of the room and punches a wall as he goes. A man uses a long sword to open a champagne bottle. Several women go to a car trudging through a heavy storm hoping to go for help after finding a body but the battery is dead. Several women search for a man in a dark house and find his backpack filled with weapons and a map. A man and a woman kiss, and the man bites the woman’s tongue twice causing her to complain and she eventually walks away. A man has a black eye and we hear that another man had punched him.
 A woman tries to touch another woman’s face and she pulls away saying, “You frighten me.” People argue incessantly throughout the movie and when voting on who they think the murderer is in their game, and one woman says, “He who casts the first stone.” A man and a woman argue about the woman sharing information about their relationship, and the man becomes upset, calls the woman names and insults her, causing her to cry. People argue and make assumptions about people that they don’t know and accuse them of murder. A woman tells another woman to be quiet and she says, “You’re silencing me.” People talk about a woman being devastated and having a panic attack. We hear that a woman’s father cut off her financial support when she became addicted to drugs. Two women argue about one woman’s relationship with a man and she leaves the room upset. A woman tells another woman, “You look weird.” A woman tells another woman, “[F-word deleted] off and die.” A woman tells other women, “You trigger me,” and, “You enable me.” A woman tells another woman, “Nobody likes you.”
 Thunder rumbles, lightning flashes and rain pours down in heavy winds as we hear reports of a large storm passing through; several people stand out in the rain for a few minutes before going inside.
 A woman vomits and we see a trickle of goo leave her mouth.

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.
