Forces of Nature | 1999 | PG-13 | - 5.4.5

Strangers Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck encounter numerous mishaps while traveling to Georgia for her business meeting and his wedding to Maura Tierney. Also with Steve Zahn, Blythe Danner, Ronny Cox, Joe Don Baker, Jack Kehler, Meredith Scott Lynn and David Strickland.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo. Kissing, often passionately. We see a clothed couple kissing and cuddling in bed and a clothed man lying on top of a clothed woman, kissing her. A woman wearing a bra and thong underwear (we see her bare backside) dances suggestively in front of a group of men; she also stands on her head, spreads her legs in front of a man, wraps her legs around his neck and then pulls herself up from the floor onto his shoulders, putting her crotch in his face. For a strip-tease act, a woman undresses a man down to his boxers in front of many other men (we see a bit of his bare chest as he opens and closes his unbuttoned shirt). We briefly see a woman's bare calves, back, stomach and shoulders as she undresses and bathes, and we see a woman in her bra and panties and a woman wearing some cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Two men have heart attacks; one clutches his chest and falls to the ground and the other simply passes out. We briefly see a film clip of a man being gored during a bullfight (no blood is visible). While a plane is taxiing down a runway, a bird is sucked into its engine; the plane loses control and eventually crashes into a sign (the passengers aren't seriously injured, though we later see a few people with bandages on their heads). A woman is accidentally hit with a laptop computer and gets a slightly bloody bump on her forehead. During a scuffle, a man punches a man in the stomach, a man slaps another, and a man pushes a woman. A tree limb is struck by lightning and nearly hits some people. We see a building engulfed in flames.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word, a few anatomical references, several scatological references, several mild obscenities and many insults. Two obscene finger gestures.

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.
