Here on Earth | 2000 | PG-13 | - 3.2.3

Small-town girl Leelee Sobieski falls for rich prep-school student Chris Klein when he spends the summer rebuilding her family's restaurant, which he and her boyfriend (Josh Hartnett) destroyed while drag-racing. Also with Michael Rooker, Annie Corley, Bruce Greenwood, Annette O'Toole, Elaine Hendrix, Stuart Wilson, Ronni Saxon, Tac Fitzgerald, Jessica Stier and Isabell Monk. [1:36]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo (including a reference to bestiality) and several kisses (in one scene a boy kisses a girl's foot, shin, knee, stomach and mouth as they're sitting on the ground, then they lean back, hidden by tall grass, and presumably kiss more). We see the faces and bare shoulders of a boy and girl as they kiss passionately, then we see them presumably nude but mostly covered with sheets while lying in bed the next morning. We see a boy wearing a towel around his waist, a girl wearing only a long dress shirt, a few women in cleavage- and midriff-revealing tops and some shirtless men.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A boy punches another, some boys shove each other a little, a boy is thrown head-first into a drum set on a stage (he's not injured) and a boy tackles another and then they punch each other and wrestle on the ground, eventually falling through the side of a partially built building (each has a small abrasion on his face). A man forcefully puts a boy's arm behind his back when handcuffing him. A person falls while running; we later see the person in a hospital and wearing a leg cast. In an extended scene two cars chase each other, weave in front of each other and nearly hit some pedestrians; eventually one of the cars runs into a gas station, causing an explosion that destroys it and another building (no one is injured). Someone talks about finding their mother in a bathtub filled with blood. We see a scene from a funeral ceremony (a closed casket is visible).

LANGUAGE 3 - A couple of anatomical references, several scatological references, a couple of mild obscenities and a couple of profane 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.
