A young man flirts with a woman, he moves close to her and kisses her, and the lights in the house are turned off (sex is implied).

 A man is shown lying on a bed cover with a sheet (we see his bare chest and abdomen) as a woman enters the room and they talk about the previous night. Women and younger men dance in a club; one couple dances close and caress each other, and then kiss.

 Several women are shown from the back as they do a yoga pose that shows their buttocks and hips stretching upward and three young men approach them with interest. A photo of a man and a woman in a hot tub shows the woman's bare upper back and the man's upper chest and shoulders. Several women are shown wearing low-cut dresses that reveal cleavage. Two young men strip to their boxer briefs (we see bare backs and abdomens) and run into the ocean to swim. A woman wears a low-cut T-shirt that reveals cleavage.

A woman describes her husband's work in the music business and that they did a lot of partying and that he would "come home smelling like Don Julio."

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.
