crazy/beautiful | 2001 | PG-13 | - 5.3.5

Kirsten Dunst stars as a bored and rebellious rich girl attending an L.A. high school who falls in love with a hardworking, poor boy from the other side of the tracks (Jay Hernandez). Also with Lucinda Jenney, Taryn Manning and Bruce Davison. [2:15]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A young man and woman undress down to their underwear and kiss while on a bed, and a young man and woman bare to the waist (we only see her back) kiss and touch each other in bed in a couple of scenes. We see a young man and woman in a fogged up shower stall kissing (from the waist up and in profile). Also a young man and woman in their underwear wrestle around on a bed. A young woman climbs on the lap of a young man and kisses him (he tries to resist). A young man and woman kiss in several other scenes. A group of young people with bare shoulders are shown in a hot tub; one couple kiss. Two young women dance suggestively with each other, with some men in a crowd and then with a young man. A young woman urinates in an alley. A young woman wears a barely opaque, tiny white T-shirt and her nipples are visible. There is some sexual innuendo: a young woman talks to her friend about rumors that are going around about her activities the night before, a young man and woman talk about using condoms, and there's a reference to the "mile high club." A young man gets out of bed in his underwear. We see a photo of a man's bare legs to the hip (it's a profile and his legs are crossed and nothing is exposed). Two young women kiss; it doesn't appear to be sexual but rather a gesture of best friends. A young woman licks a young man's face (like a dog). Young women wear midriff- and cleavage-revealing outfits throughout the film. A voice-over describes the feeling of a man's touch. A group of young men cat-call at young women a few times.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A young man is punched in the face, a young man is shoved into a hot tub and a man yells at a group of young men. A young woman kicks and screams when police hold her by the arms, and a young man is shoved down into the hood of a car. Two girls quarrel with name-calling and angry gestures. A young woman yells at her father and a young man yells at his mother and brother. Two young women drive their cars recklessly in several scenes. A young man is dropped from a boardwalk onto a beach (it's a playful act).

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.
