Fargo | 1996 | R | - 5.7.8

A man hires thugs to kidnap his wife in order to get ransom money from his wealthy father-in-law; but things go horribly wrong.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man has sex with prostitutes in two scenes. As one prostitute flees down a hallway we glimpse naked buttocks.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A handful of deaths by bullets. We see blood a couple of times (once a gush of blood from a pointblank head shot). We see a corpse's bloody face a couple of times, a woman tries to flee her kidnappers and falls down steps, a man is shot in the jaw (the result is a great deal of blood), a man is hit with an ax and then fed into a wood chipper (we see sprays of blood and his foot sticking out).

LANGUAGE 8 - 25+ F-words, some scatological references and a handful of mild obscenities.

MESSAGE - Greed can lead to horrible consequences.

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.
