SEX/NUDITY 3 - A man and a woman kiss passionately until the woman pulls away and hugs the man after he says he would like to marry her. A man kisses a woman and the woman pulls away. A woman reclined on a bed allows a man to kiss her and they kiss passionately until the woman pulls away. A man hugs a woman's torso and kisses her stomach.
 A man listens to a voicemail message from a young man joking that he needs the man to come pick him up and "bring a condom" and then adds that he was joking.
 Throughout the movie, we see a shirtless man (we see his bare chest) sleeping in bed next to his young son; the man wakes up and we see that he is wearing boxer-style underwear.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man pours out a goldfish's bowl into a sink and we see the goldfish flapping around in the empty bowl, gasping; the man fills the bowl up again and the fish floats to the top of the bowl, dead. A boy asks his father what happened to his fish (we see the fish floating in a bowl of water) and the man explains that the fish had died; we then see the man and boy burying the fish next to the gravestone of the boy's mother.
 A man explains to a woman that his former girlfriend had died in a car accident when a motorcycle wrecked into her car, causing her car to flip; the man continues that the woman's neck snapped upon impact and she died.
 A man offers several people $2,000 to hold a gun to their chin and pull the trigger, and we then see a man holding the gun to his temple as other people laugh, drunkenly; the man then puts the gun in his waistband and another man jokes that that is a good way to "blow off" the man's genitals. A man angrily shouts at two other men and storms away.
 We hear a man urinating; we hear the sound and see the man's back as his son watches. We see a man urinating off a porch (no nudity is visible) and we hear the sound of urination. A man tells a woman that he has to defecate.

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.
