Inventing the Abbotts | 1997 | R | - 6.2.6

Two brothers from the wrong side of the tracks fantasize about and date three rich sisters in a 1950's town.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A few sex scenes: in one a couple is having sex with the woman on top of the man, thrusting and moaning, and her bare breasts are evident. In another the man is on top and again we see thrusting and hear moaning and both his bare behind and her bare breasts are seen. In yet another scene we see thrusting and hear heavy breathing and moaning -- but no nudity. A few make-out scenes with kissing and fondling (the participants are clothed) and attempted disrobing -- a man's shirt is unbuttoned, a woman's skirt is raised. Sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Scuffles, fistfights with punches, knocking over objects and falling. After a punch a man has a bit of blood on his face.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 15 F-words, a few scatological references, some anatomical references, many mild obscenities.

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.
