SEX/NUDITY 6 - A woman stands nude in her apartment and invites a man to join her in bed (we see her upper chest and her full bare back is shown diffused so that we see no detail, just flesh tones); the man takes off his shoes and pants (we see him wearing his shirt) as he climbs into bed and the two kiss and they have sex while she thrusts on top of him and looks at her reflection in a mirror.
 A man and a woman kiss in a park. A woman kisses a man on the cheek. A man flirts with a woman in her hotel room, he sits on her bed and leans over to kiss her (they are interrupted).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A woman peddles fast on an exercise bike and she is spun off the cycle, crashes onto the floor and her hair becomes caught in the neighboring bike's wheel (she picks up her head and we see a clump of her hair pulled out); we see her unconscious later but revives and seems OK. A woman walks into a shower door and hits her head; she falls unconscious and wakes with a bloody gash on her head. A woman sits on an exercise bike and it collapses under her injuring her crotch (she holds her hand between her legs as she limps out of the fitness center and we see her torn leggings). A woman crashes into an opaque wall on a stage three times as an audience watches and flinches (she is not visibly injured).

 A woman breaks up with a man over the phone. A woman yells and cries as she looks at herself in a mirror. A man tells a woman at a drycleaner's that he couldn't get out "The red vomit stains. It had chunks in it." A woman tells another woman, "I want to punch you in the face."

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.
