Corky Romano | 2001 | PG-13 | - 4.5.5

A crime boss (Peter Falk) is about to be indicted and needs the help of his estranged veterinarian son Corky (Chris Kattan). Corky, who neither looks nor behaves like a mafioso and has never fit in with his crime family, is convinced that he's the right person to infiltrate the FBI and abscond with whatever evidence the Feds have against his papa. Also with Vinessa Shaw, Richard Roundtree and Chris Penn. [1:22]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and woman kiss, and a man and woman come very close to kissing -- we see her lips puckered and trembling. A man falls on top of a woman and knocks her to the ground accidentally; when another man enters the room he thinks they are doing something sexual. Two men look at each other longingly. A man tears a woman's shirt off (unknowingly, because he can't open his eyes) and she is wearing a red lace bra. A woman wears a very short and tight nurse's costume which exposes some cleavage and thighs in lace stockings with garters. Two men are shown in a strip club and they watch a woman dance, but we see only her head and shoulders. We see a close-up photograph of a woman's cleavage and a woman wears a skin-tight workout suit. A woman answers the phone at a veterinary clinic by saying "…pussies" several times; she means "cats," but people who hear her take it to mean something else. A man tells another man to pull down his pants -- in order to have a wire attached. A man smacks another man's buttock. A man admires and photographs men's buttocks and remarks about a man's muscular thighs. A man remarks that his private parts are very tender. We see a couple of bare-chested men in a junkyard lifting car parts. A man tears a man's shirt open and we see him bare-chested. A man remarks about looking at girlie magazines and about having exposed himself in a ladies' room.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A group of men attack another group of men, hitting them on the head and face with bats and wrenches, and sending one through a window. FBI agents stand over a corpse and describe his injuries (shot, mutilated and dragged) while flies buzz around it, and a man remarks that there are maggots on it; a man also steps on the body and drops a parcel on it which makes a squishing sound. A man talks about a criminal severing the genitals of his victims. A man has jumper cables attached to his nipples and a charge is sent through causing one side to catch on fire. A man is shot in the chest and pulls the bullet out of his bulletproof vest. Two men draw guns and begin firing while two others shoot back; there's a lot of property damage and one man lays dead. A man fires an automatic weapon repeatedly, bullets fly everywhere and a gas tank is hit and it explodes sending a man and a dog flying through the air. We see a dog lying on its back (presumably dead) and a man gives it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. A man flies through the air and kicks a man in the face repeatedly. A woman grabs a man's crotch, throws him across the room and then jumps on top of him. A man's head is strapped into a paint-shaking machine; he is shaken and flails around. A man is thrown into a dumpster. A man jumps across a desk trying to get at two other men, and a man runs up over a car and jumps on top of another man knocking him to the ground. A man grabs another man by the arm and holds him by the throat. A man holds onto a car door handle while two men pull on his legs, he scrambles on top of the car, over the hood and hides underneath the car. A man pounds his head on a divider grate in a police car, kicks it, knocks it out and begins driving the car in reverse with his feet while a man hangs on to the hood. A car crashes into another car and a man flies through the air landing on the ground. A woman maces a man when she thinks he's sniffing her panties (he's really wiping his nose after being hurt). A woman practicing martial arts punches a man in the crotch, and a man and woman punch two men in the crotch. A man pinches a man's nipple, slaps him in the eye, and slaps him on the back of the head. A man falls on top of a woman and knocks her to the ground accidentally. Two men swing lawn lamps at each other and one is hit hard across the jaw and is knocked out. A man has a heart attack and falls back into a crowd of people. A dog grabs a kilo of cocaine and struggles with a man over it until it bursts open and both are sprayed with the powder which causes them to act very energetically. A really large old cat growls and hisses at a doctor and its owner demands that the cat be put to sleep. A doctor spills hot tea on a cat, which runs away; the man knocks over a cage with a snake, another cage with hamsters, whereupon the cat grabs a parrot and starts running while the doctor grabs and tugs on the bird trying to free it. A man tosses hamsters back into their cage and a snake crawls up a man's pant leg; the man unzips his pants and pulls the snake out of his fly. A man says to his father: "You should have smothered him [his brother] in his crib." A man talks to a dog about "sniffing butts," and talks to a cat about its bowel movements. A man grabs a man by the hair and pulls his head back while yelling threats at him. There are several instances of threatening with weapons: A man with a gun holds another man by the throat and threatens to shoot him; a long line of people hold guns on each other; two men hold a man, hit him and throw him into a bookcase; two men yell at and draw guns on each other; and a man threatens a man and woman with a gun and a knife. A man threatens a man several times and two men pass gas, one strenuously.

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.
