Fear | 1996 | R | - 6.8.8

Reese Witherspoon endangers herself and her family when she begins a relationship with psycho Mark Wahlberg.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A brief glimpse of naked women in a magazine, sexual innuendo, brief fondling through clothes, a man caresses a woman under her skirt as she sighs and moans, lots of passionate kissing. A woman is sitting on her boyfriend's lap gyrating, her nearly bare buttocks (she's wearing a thong) are seen. A man and woman have sex: he pulls her underwear off, we see his bare chest and we see them kissing and thrusting.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A nightclub brawl. A man viciously hits a woman resulting in a black eye, a man chases a boy and breaks his neck, a man is thrown out a window amidst breaking glass and lands with a thud (some blood in his mouth). A couple of other people are beaten up. A drill through someone's hand (a little blood), the bloody head of a dog is thrown into a house, a man is shot point-blank in the head, a man is run over by a car. Some yelling scenes, lots of property damage and threats.

LANGUAGE 8 - About 20 F-words, many scatological references, some mild obscenities and anatomical references.

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.
