Hideous Kinky | 1999 | R | - 6.3.5

After a soured marriage, a young mother takes her two daughters to Morocco in search of spiritual knowledge and inner peace. With Kate Winslet, Said Taghmaoui, Bella Riza, Carrie Mullan, Pierre Clementi, Abigail Cruttenden, Ahmed Boulane, Sira Stampe, Amidou, Michelle Fairley, Kevin McKidd, Peter Youngblood Hills, Mohcine Barmouni, Annouar Zrika and Mohamed Cherkaoui. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A woman hugs a man from behind and kisses his neck. A shirtless man sits on a topless woman (her bare breasts are visible a couple of times) and feeds her fruit; they then kiss passionately. A nude man covering his genitals with a hat runs into a lake (we see some pubic hair and his entire backside). Several times throughout the movie we see little girls in their underwear, with and without their shirts; twice, we see a little girl in her underwear lying on a woman's bare back.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Several women yell, push and fight and one throws tomatoes at another. A woman gets a bloody cut on her hand. A woman grabs a girl's face, a man is hit with a rope briefly (presumably as part of a street act) and in a dream a hand grabs a girl's neck and chokes her. During another dream sequence we see blood, presumably from animal carcasses being sold in a market, splashing onto the ground. Men riding horses fire shots into the air. A car runs off the road after nearly hitting a camel. A sheet-covered corpse is carried on a stretcher in a procession. We see some girls vomiting, a girl faints, and a man has many large blisters on his back and shoulders. Some small explosions in a rock quarry.

LANGUAGE 5 - Three F-words, an anatomical reference seen in a subtitle, some scatological references, a few mild obscenities, an insult, and a few British slang terms.

MESSAGE - Sometimes happiness comes from putting other's needs first; sometimes you must sacrifice your dreams and desires for the sake of your loved ones.
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.
