Home Fries | 1998 | PG-13 | - 2.6.4

Romantic black comedy with Drew Barrymore as a single, pregnant woman who's the object of affection of a man who was an accomplice in her former lover's death. Catherine O'Hara, Jake Busey and Luke Wilson co-star.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo. A woman finds a box of condoms. A woman is pregnant after having an affair with a married man -- we see nothing on-screen, though.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man apparently dies of fright after two men chase him in a helicopter and shoot blanks at him. A man in a helicopter fires its guns at three people. A drunken man with a gun threatens customers in a restaurant; another man kicks him, takes the gun, and then points it at him. A bullet, which had been put into a hamburger on a grill, explodes and flies around a room. A man attempts to kill a woman by gassing her; she and another person pass out. A scuffle.

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.
