Coneheads | 1993 | PG | - 4.5.3

Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin are the alien Conehead parental units, trying to raise their young one (Michelle Burke) while realizing the American Dream. Based on characters created by NBC's Saturday Night Live.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - One full shot of naked male bottoms in the shower, including a conehead's (theirs looks different), and some cleavage. There are a couple of necking scenes -- between humans, conehead and conehead and conehead and human -- and a suggested sex scene between conehead and human teen (nothing is shown). A seduction scene, leading to sex, which is only heard through surveillance equipment. A conehead gives birth. Condoms are used as chewing gum. Discussion of birds and the bees.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - There's a battle between a monster and two men: both end up dead, and we see a severed leg and head. Some shoving, pushing and some gross-out scenes: the coneheads eat toilet paper, fiberglass insulation, drink window cleaner, and even bite on an umbilical cord (off-screen).

LANGUAGE 3 - Some scatological and anatomical references. Some profanities in incomprehensible Remulakian (the conehead's native tongue).

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Fraud, illegal immigrants, alien life, teen sex.

MESSAGE - A happy family is everything.

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.
