SEX/NUDITY 4 - Several kisses, some passionate and some between two men. From a distance, we see a clothed woman moving on top of a clothed man while they both moan. A masseuse rubs a woman's clothed buttocks; she asks him to rub her shoulders instead, which he does. We see several women wearing cleavage- and/or midriff-revealing tops and a couple of shirtless men.

VIOLENCE/GORE 0 - None.

LANGUAGE 8 - About 22 F-words, several anatomical references, many scatological references, a mild obscenity, and a couple of insults.


the review continues below...

SUBSTANCE USE - We see a few people buying the drug Ecstasy, we see a few people swallowing the pills, it's implied that nearly everyone at the rave has taken the drug (there are also several references to drug use), a couple of people appear to be sniffing fumes from a can (one stumbles around and is later seen lying on the floor, nearly unconscious and at one point he pretends to actually be unconscious, which causes another person to briefly panic and try to revive him).

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Raves, drug use, bonding with others, friendship, self-discovery, sexuality.

MESSAGE - Raves are safe, friendly and energizing events. Taking Ecstasy at a rave can be liberating and enlightening.

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.
