Bride and Prejudice | 2005 | PG-13 | - 4.2.2

Indian romantic comedy inspired by Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice," about a wealthy American hotel owner who travels to India with his best friend for a traditional Indian wedding. Being swept into the culture and the joy of the celebration, he meets a young woman who mistrusts his intentions and finds him rude and arrogant -- but they're attracted to each other nevertheless. Although neither will admit their interest in each other, love triumphs when his mother and his girlfriend get in the way. With Aishwarya Rai, Martin Henderson, Daniel Gillies, Naveen Andrews and Namrate Shirodkar. Directed by Gurinder Chadha. [2:00]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Several women sing about a man being "good in bed" and we see a flash of a man in a thong (revealing bare buttocks) pouncing on a bed like a lion. A man wears thong underwear that reveals bare buttocks in another scene, and a man applies suntan lotion to a woman's back.
 Men and women wear swimsuits while lounging poolside, women wear low-cut dresses and tops that reveal cleavage, and a woman's top is low-cut and short and her skirt is low-slung revealing cleavage, bare abdomen and bare back. A man's shirt hangs open revealing his bare chest, and a woman's top rides up revealing a bit of bare back.
 A man and a woman hug and kiss and a man and a woman nearly kiss. A man and a woman dance in a fountain, hold and caress each other. A man and woman swim in a pool together and hug. A man and a younger woman spend a great deal of time together and although only hugging and tender kissing is shown on screen it is implied that there may have been more of a physical relationship. A man kisses a woman on the forehead and they hug. A man and two women hug and kiss goodbye.
 Men dance and sing about women, romance and attraction while women watch, then the women dance and sing in similar manner while the men watch. Men and women flirt in several scenes, and men and women dance together in several scenes. Men dressed as women dance in a street while a crowd watches and sings.
 A man says that another man got his "sister pregnant when she was 16." A woman talks about a young woman spending all of her time text messaging boys and chatting with them. Women (mothers of marriage-aged daughters) talk about hoping that a man is unmarried and wealthy and talk about marrying off their daughters. A man talks about women becoming lesbians.

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.
