Forever My Girl | 2018 | PG | - 3.2.2

A man (Alex Roe) leaves his fiancée (Jessica Rothe) at the altar to find fame with a country music career. After he finds success, he returns to their hometown years later and he discovers that he's the father of a precocious seven-year-old daughter. Also with John Benjamin Hicke, Abby Ryder Fortson, Travis Tritt, Judith Hoag and Tyler Tiggs. Directed by Bethany Ashton Wolf. [1:44]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A male singer sees a woman at his concert and orders his manager to send her up to his hotel room; we see her in the morning wearing a long T-shirt (bare legs and thighs are seen) while the man is bare-chested and sex is implied. A man and a woman kiss passionately for several seconds in three scenes, and one of the scenes involves dancing closely to slow music and another of the scenes is their wedding. A man and a woman kiss briefly. A man and a woman hug.
 A woman tells a man to take pictures of himself topless or bottomless, but he does not do so. A woman flirts with a man, saying, "You smell good."
 A few scenes feature two or three women wearing dresses that reveal cleavage. A woman and a little girl wear short shorts that reveal bare legs to upper thigh. A woman wears a long gown that reveals some cleavage to the waist in a deep V-neckline, along with a bare back. A woman wears an off the shoulder dress and a strapless dress, neither revealing cleavage. A man is shown bare-chested in a few scenes.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A seven-year-old chokes on a hot dog, her father freezes in shock, a man and a woman scream and the man does the Heimlich maneuver (we hear her cough; do not see the food come out of her mouth).
 A woman punches a man in the stomach, causing him to bend over and grunt. A man falls out of bed, but is unharmed. A man grabs a magazine from another man's hands and slams it to the floor. A man in the rain at night pounds on a house door, shouts, and no one answers.
 Two men argue loudly in two scenes, a man shouts at another man over a phone, and an older man argues with a younger man. A woman argues with a man twice. A woman shouts orders over a phone and on a plane. A young girl says to a man, "You're not gonna kill me or anything are you?"
 A TV broadcast states that a man was killed in a motor accident and we later see men and women dressed in black at a church funeral with a closed casket, and we then see a cemetery with a casket on a stand next to a pile of dirt and part of an open grave.
 A man wraps gauze around another man's hand in close-up and we see a spot of blood on the wrap; we hear that the injured man punched through a bar door. A man spits coffee into a sink.

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.
