Diggers | 2007 | R | - 7.3.9

Drama set in the mid-1970s on the south shore of New York's Long Island, about a group of clam diggers who try to survive while their livelihood is being threatened by encroaching corporate fisheries. With Paul Rudd, Ken Marino, Josh Hamilton, Ron Eldard and Maura Tierney. Directed by Katherine Dieckmann. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - A man and a woman have sex, we see her thrusting on top of him and they both moan (he is bare-chested and we see her bare back).
 A woman performs oral sex on a man sitting in a car: he honks his horn when he climaxes and we see her sit up in the front seat.
 A nude man climbs onto a boat (we see his bare buttocks, chest and back and a very brief glimpse between his legs from the back). A man exposes his bare buttocks to a woman (we also see them). A woman finds a pornographic magazine in her deceased father's possessions (we see a very quick glimpse of bare breasts, buttocks, abdomens and legs). A woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage. A man is shown seated on a toilet with his pants around his ankles (bare legs are visible) and a boy walks into the room. We see a man in his jockey shorts and tank top.
 A man tries to distract another man who is playing pool by resting his clothed crotch on the table pocket. Two women talk in a restroom, one uses the toilet and we see her standing up and pulling up her pants (no physical detail is seen). A woman dresses (nothing is visible) while a man lies in bed (he is bare-chested) and it is implied that they had sex.
 A man and a woman kiss. A man kisses a woman on the cheek. A woman kisses a man on the cheek.
 A man and a woman flirt silently from a distance (he is in a boat and she is onshore) in several scenes. A woman talks about finding her husband having sex with another woman. Two women talk about sex with their husbands (one makes a references to oral sex).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Four men fight with three other men: many punches and kicks land (we see a few with bloody lips and bruises on their faces), one man's head is slammed into the hood of a car, and another man fires a gun into the air to break up the fight.
 A man confronts another man in an alley, and they scuffle and fight (a couple of punches land). A woman slaps a man in the face twice.
 A man has died while on his fishing boat and another man finds him (we do not see the body in the boat, but we see it in the coffin at the funeral).
 A man becomes angry, and he throws a typewriter and overturns a garbage can. A man is angry all the time, he yells at his wife and at his children and is verbally abusive.
 A woman threatens to put a cigarette out on a man's tongue if he smokes in her house. A woman talks about having an abortion (she does not).
 A man carries his deceased father's ashes in an urn, which he places in a cooler.

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.
