54 | 1998 | R | - 6.1.7

A look back at the glory days of the New York disco Studio 54. Starring Mike Myers, Ryan Phillippe, Salma Hayek, Neve Campbell, Sela Ward, Breckin Meyer, Sherry Stringfield, Heather Matarazzo and Ellen Albertini Dow.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to homosexuality and oral sex) and passionate kissing. We see a topless woman straddling a clothed man, moving her hips against him. A nude couple has intercourse (we see his bare chest, her back and shoulders, and the tops of her breasts). A man offers to perform oral sex on another man, and implies that he'll be given a promotion if he accepts (he doesn't go through with it). A few brief shots of a man lying in bed with different women; it's implied he's had sex with them. We see a naked man's posterior and a woman's bare breasts. Lots of scantily clad women and men.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - A woman falls down and gets a cut on her forehead and a bloody nose; she dies a few seconds later, apparently from a drug overdose. A man shoves another man. A man spits up.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 20 F-words, many anatomical and scatological references, and some insults and mild obscenities.

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.
