In the Mix | 2005 | PG-13 | - 5.5.5

Usher Raymond stars as an African-American man who's a member of the Italian mob. When he's hired to serve as a bodyguard to the don's daughter, who's also his childhood friend, he realizes that he's always loved her. Now he has to choose between respecting her father's wishes or following his heart. Also with Emmanuelle Chriqui, Chazz Palminteri, Anthony Fazio and Matt Gerald. Directed by Ron Underwood. [1:35]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman kiss passionately, she slides down to his waist (presumably looking for his keys) and we see her pulling at his waistband; they move inside his apartment kissing and undressing each other (he is bare-chested and she has a button or two undone on her top), they lie back on a couch and are interrupted when a little girl comes into the apartment and turns on the light. A man and a woman kiss, he takes off her jacket, she takes off his shirt, he lays her down on a sofa and it is implied that they have sex (we see them wake up together in the morning, and he is bare-chested and in boxers and she is wearing his shirt).
 A woman kisses a man and flirts with him very aggressively he rebuffs her and she makes a suggestive remark ("I guess I'll have to go home, take a shower and get into bed naked."). Three women flirt with, and ask relationship advice from a man.
 A woman wearing a very short skirt flips her hips revealing bare buttocks when her skirt also flips. A woman showers and we see her bare shoulders. A woman in a bathing suit invites a man into a pool, and he takes off his shirt and jumps in (we see him bare-chested). Women wear low-cut and short dresses that reveal bare backs, bare abdomens, bare legs and cleavage in many scenes.
 Men and women dance suggestively and seductively in many club scenes including caressing each other and rubbing hips and buttocks together. A man and a woman dance together, they hold each other and kiss, a man and a woman dance together and kiss, a man and a woman kiss tenderly and stop when a cat startles them, and a man and a woman kiss in a few scenes. A man kisses a woman on the cheek and a woman kisses a man on the head.
 A woman pats a man on the buttock when he takes a yoga pose. A man admires the buttocks of several women holding yoga poses.
 Women admire a man on a stage and another man on the stage makes remarks about the women wanting him. A man makes many references to going to a strip club; he also describes the talents of one particular dancer there (she can rest a glass of water on her buttocks and drink from it at the same time). A young man tells another man that the "ladies are calling," and that he would be happy to "comfort them for him." A man jumps when a tailor measures his inseam and tells him not to "mess with my junk."

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - People in a car drive by and shoot into a restaurant where people are gathered, and a man trying to push people to safety is shot in the shoulder (we see blood on his shirt and we see him bandaged later).
 Two men hold guns on another man, one of them starts shooting, one man is hit in the abdomen (we see a hole in his jacket), another man continues to shoot hitting a man in the shoulder and a mirrored ball falls from the ceiling and hits him on the head (we see a bloody wound on his head).
 A man is grabbed by three other men, one man shoves him into a swimming pool and holds his head under the water several times, he is then dragged out of the building, put into a car and we see him being shoved out of the car and onto the ground later.
 A man shoves a man, threatens him and holds a gun on him, while other men surround the man with the gun and restrain him. Two men threaten a man and a woman (whose hands are bound) with guns. A woman slaps a man in the face.
 We see a dead man in the trunk of a car and his skin is tinged blue. A man removes a glass eye from a dead man (we hear a slurp but do not see him remove it) and then puts the eye in the dead man's pocket at his funeral.
 A man calls an African-American man an eggplant in Italian several times and does so in a demeaning manner. A man yells at his daughter and threatens to hurt someone she cares for.
 A man picks his fingernails with a knife. People react to a dog having flatulence.

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.
