Calendar Girls | 2003 | PG-13 | - 5.1.4

A group of middle-aged women in a small English country town decide to use their women's group charity drive to raise money for new furniture in a hospital waiting room after one of them loses her husband to leukemia. They decide that the only way to raise real money is to sell a calendar of themselves posing in the nude. Based on a true story. With Julie Walters, Helen Mirren, Penelope Wilton, Annette Crosbie and John Alderton. Directed by Nigel Cole [1:48]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman hug and kiss. A woman removes her blouse and bra and we see her bare breasts -- very briefly; two teenage boys see her and they panic. Many women remove their bras (from under their shirts and dresses). We see photographs of a woman with bare breasts. A woman removes her robe and we see a bit of her bare breast. We see a topless woman on a calendar, but her hands cover her breasts. We see a nude woman on a calendar: her arms cover her breasts and we see bare buttocks (she wears a thong). We see photographs of many nude women, with props covering their private parts: we see a bit of bare hips, bare buttocks, sides of breasts, bare legs, and bare abdomens. A woman finds a porn magazine in her teenage son's room (we see cleavage and words cover the nipples). Comments are made about a husband not "getting" sex from his wife. Women talk about a George Clooney calendar with a "lift the flap." A boy describes breasts using fruit terminology. Two boys talk about someone being a lesbian. We see a poster of a woman wearing a tank top that exposes cleavage. A young woman wears a bikini.

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.
