The Hudsucker Proxy | 1994 | PG | - 3.3.3

A comic fantasy with Tim Robbins as an innocent who becomes the president of a big company. His unprincipled nemesis is played by Paul Newman.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Paul Newman is shown bare-chested. A woman dances seductively in a revealing costume. Some abundant cleavage is shown, and there are a few romantic kisses.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man jumps out of a window and falls 45 floors to his death (we are with him every minute, and hear a splat when he reaches the street). However, nothing gory is shown and the scene is more reminiscent of a cartoon than a live action feature. Another man falls from the same building, but never hits bottom. And yet another man tries to jump out of the same window, but the glass doesn't break. Several faces are slapped, and there are a couple of punches thrown. A man gets his foot stuck in a burning trash trash can. All the violence is cartoonish.

LANGUAGE 3 - Some harsh name-calling, yelling and a smattering of mild profanities -- mostly of the anatomical variety.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Suicide, the corporate rat-race vs. true happiness, supernatural entities and angels.

MESSAGE - Take pleasure in what you have. Money and success are not the same as happiness (but they sure do help).

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.
