Johnson Family Vacation | 2004 | PG-13 | - 4.4.5

A separated couple (Vanessa L. Williams and Cedric the Entertainer) plans a trip with their three children to a family reunion. The husband wants desperately to win the "Family of the Year" award, and also hopes to win back his wife in the process. Also with Solange Knowles, Bow Wow and Chris Hardwick. Directed by Christopher Erskin. [1:36]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and a woman kiss in several scenes. A man grabs a woman and tries to kiss her. A woman in a swimsuit climbs into a hot tub, her husband joins her, she removes his trunks underwater and leaves him, he is joined by several other women who caress his shoulders, touch and pinch him as he tries to leave the tub, he darts behind columns trying to hide his nudity, and a family comes face-to-face with him and appear shocked. A woman and her young daughter sit in a bubble bath together (we see bare shoulders under bubbles). A young woman admires a man wearing Native American garb that reveals his bare chest -- he gives her father directions with suggestive terms and hand gestures. A woman dances around a man, wiggling her hips in his direction and he makes agreeable utterances. A woman wears a top that is laced down the front revealing cleavage and bare abdomen. A young woman wears a low-cut, short top and a short skirt revealing cleavage, bare abdomen, shoulders and thighs. A man chases his wife who makes suggestive remarks to him, and a woman talks suggestively and seductively to her husband. A man makes many sexually suggestive remarks to a woman in a few scenes ("you look like hot butter" and "I'll take it any way I can get it"). A man talks to his son about the sexual lyrics in modern music and says "you need to wear a condom to listen." A woman flirts with a man and says "you must be a real man."

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A baby alligator climbs in a bed where a man and a woman sleep (we see the sheet rising up at the man's crotch), they wake up screaming, the alligator snaps and snarls at them, and the man grabs the alligator, slams it against a sink, and dumps it in a bath tub. A woman punches a man in the face, a man kicks a man, and another man kicks a man. A police officer tasers a man, and a man with a bat threatens another man. Two men swing at each other. A man slaps a boy's hand and a girl hits a boy on the head with a pillow. A car drives through a construction site, crashes into the back of a cement mixer that dumps cement on the car's hood. A truck rams the back of a moving car, the hatch opens and suitcases litter the roadway. A car and a truck nearly crash. A man throws CDs out of a speeding car and then a cup of urine that splatters on the face of a motorcycle police officer. We hear flatulating and splattering in a toilet in a bathroom and see a man leaving the bathroom without washing his hands (he is a restaurant employee). A boy urinates in a soda cup (we hear the trickle), a man takes a sip of it and reacts to the taste. A man yells at a man. A woman casts a satanic spell on a family.

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.
