Celebrity | 1998 | R | - 7.2.9

Woody Allen comedy with Kenneth Branagh as a newly-divorced writer searching for fame, fortune and perfect love. Also with Judy Davis, Leonardo DiCaprio and Winona Ryder.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Lots of sexual innuendo. Kissing, often passionately; in one scene we see two women kiss briefly. A woman unbuckles a man's belt and oral sex is implied, but nothing is seen. We see a man underneath covers and a scantily clad woman getting dressed -- they've obviously just had intercourse. A man and woman dance very suggestively. A man touches a woman's elbow and she begins to moan pleasurably. Two women practice performing fellatio on bananas. A man and woman are clothed but appear to be having intercourse on a desk. During one scene, we see a clothed couple in the background rolling around on a bed and another naked couple kissing in a hot tub (we see their bare shoulders only). Two men discuss having group sex while two women sit next to each other on a bed; later, we see one couple moving and moaning underneath the covers and the other couple lying next to them, just talking. Lots of scantily-clad women.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A man accidentally drives his car through a showroom window (no one is injured). Fake blood runs from the palms of a statue of Jesus Christ. A man breaks lamps and throws things around a room; he also pins a woman down on a bed, shaking and threatening her. We briefly see a professional boxing match.

LANGUAGE 9 - About 50 F-words, many anatomical references, a couple scatological references, and many mild obscenities.

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.
