Jefferson in Paris | 1995 | PG-13 | - 4.2.0

Nick Nolte stars as Thomas Jefferson, during the time period when he was the U.S. ambassador to France.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Women in low-cut, cleavage-promoting dresses abound. Passionate declarations of affection, hand-holding and kisses between a man and woman, a man stares at a woman's cleavage as she sings a lusty song, a hypnotist places his hand on a few clothed breasts while women become excitable and moan and swoon. A puppet show acts out a sex scene: the male puppet has a large and anatomically correct sexual organ. A man and woman tangle in bed (nothing is shown).

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A man breaks his wrist and writhes on the ground in pain; we watch as a surgeon violently sets the break. Scenes of the French Revolution: effigies are burned, mobs are yelling and running through the streets, a man is hanged, dogs are shown ripping at the bloody carcass of an unidentifiable animal. The guillotine is demonstrated on asparagus spears.

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.
