A Dangerous Woman | 1993 | R | - 7.6.7

Debra Winger stars as a mentally retarded woman, who is suspected of swiping money from her employer's cash register. Barbara Hershey and Gabriel Byrne co-star.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - There are several sex scenes, with varying degrees of intensity and nudity: one scene leaves little to the imagination, and another takes place on a kitchen floor; yet another is interrupted. We also see a side shot of a woman's bosom, and another woman's naked behind (while she is sexually gratifying herself), and also a man's naked behind.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A woman tries to run her husband over with a car and then points a gun at him. Another woman takes a kitchen knife to a co-worker and slices into his stomach with about 30 slashes -- a very bloody, graphic and disturbing scene.

LANGUAGE 7 - A couple of dozen F-words are employed, as well as several assorted scatological and anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Rape, prison, murder, adultery, abortion, mental illness.

MESSAGE - Those who are mentally retarded are wackos, so stay away from them.

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.
