Double Jeopardy | 1999 | R | - 5.6.6

Framed for the murder of her husband, a woman (Ashley Judd) survives prison with two burning desires sustaining her: finding her son and solving the mystery that destroyed her once-happy life. Standing between her and her quest is her parole officer (Tommy Lee Jones). Also with Bruce Greenwood, Annabeth Gish, Roma Maffia and Davenia McFadden.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A couple has sex with the woman on top; we see thrusting, her bare buttocks and breasts. Some kissing and sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man is shot twice in the chest with blood seen on his chest and blood smeared on glass behind him. A man shoots many times at a couple hitting the man in the shoulder and we see some blood. A woman threatens a man with a gun and then shoots at him. There is blood on a woman's hands, clothes, a door and the deck of a boat. There is a lot of blood on a table and a bloody knife (seen twice). A woman hits a man in the head with a gun leaving a bloody wound and a man slams a woman's head into a concrete pillar. A couple fights over a gun rolling around on the floor, hitting and kicking. A man punches another man in his bullet wound a few times. A woman wakes up in a coffin with a corpse and she shoots the lid off the coffin. Many scenes of reckless driving including a car being hit and destroyed, a phone booth (with someone inside) being hit and destroyed, a car crashing and flipping with people inside (they are not injured), a car being bumped into water (with no one inside), a car going underwater with a couple inside and a car bumping other cars back and forth. A couple grapples in water. There are a few chases, falls and jumps and a man nearly slips from a roof. People shatter glass in a couple of scenes, and a man shatters a car windshield with his arm. A man rips a phone out of a wall.

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.
