In Good Company | 2004 | PG-13 | - 5.3.4

Dennis Quaid stars as a 50-something business man whose life is about to turn upside down when a 20-something upstart is hired to replace him, his wife is pregnant, and his daughter is going off to college -- and is keeping a secret from him. Also with Topher Grace, Scarlett Johansson, Selma Blair and Clark Gregg. Directed by Paul Weitz. [1:50]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A young man and a young woman kiss, the young woman unbuttons the young man's shirt, they kiss, they lie back on a bed, and it is implied that they have sex. A husband and wife kiss, and a woman kisses her husband on the cheek. A married couple sleep in bed together, and the man gets out of bed and showers (we see his bare chest). A young man and a young woman hold hands briefly. A man in his boxer shorts moons a group of people, revealing his bare buttocks. We see a woman's bare abdomen during a test at an obstetrician's office. We see a man bare-chested. A young woman wears a tank top that outlines her breasts and nipples. A young woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage. Women wear short skirts that reveal bare thighs. A man finds a pregnancy test in the garbage and suspects that his college-aged daughter may be pregnant. A man spills a drink on another man's lap and tries to dry it off.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man punches a man in the face, and he falls back, onto the floor. A man drives into a street where he is hit hard by another car (we see the crumpled front fender of the car and the man's arm in a sling). A man tries to dunk a ball while playing basketball, he falls on the floor, twists his arm and we see him in a sling. A man yells at another man when he is fired. A man holds a hot dish in his bare hand, drops it and yells in pain. A man threatens to "neuter" a boy on the telephone. Two men knock into each other accidentally. A man falls on the tennis court (he is not seriously injured). A man throws a ball that hits a plate on a shelf breaking it. A man gives his daughter pepper spray to use to protect herself while living in a big city. A woman vomits (we hear her gagging). Many people are fired from their jobs.

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.
