Just Married | 2003 | PG-13 | - 5.4.4

Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy star as newlyweds whose perfect European honeymoon turns out to be a disaster. Hence they begin to wonder whether the marriage itself was really a bad idea, as many of their friends and family have insisted: not only are they very young, but she comes from a wealthy family and he's a part-time, fill-in, radio traffic reporter. Also with Christian Kane, Taran Killam and Monet Mazur. [1:35]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - We hear rhythmic moaning coming from a hotel room, as well as the springs of the bed creaking. A man and a woman kiss passionately, begin removing each other's clothing, role over onto a sofa and fall onto the floor still kissing; we see them the next morning when the man gets off the sofa and wraps a throw around his waist (he's bare chested). A man is also bare-chested and in his boxer shorts in an extended scene, and a man's shirt hangs open exposing his bare chest. A woman shoves a man into a room, jumps on him, pushing him onto a bed, gets on top of him while removing her top and bra (we see her bare back) and begins kissing him. A man and a woman go into an airplane bathroom planning to have sex; we see them kissing and trying to get positioned. A man and a woman kiss passionately and moan, a man and a woman kiss romantically in many scenes, and a man and a woman hug and kiss and nuzzle in many scenes. A man in his boxer shorts and tank T-shirt sneaks into a woman's bedroom, climbs into her bed and they kiss briefly. A man and a woman kiss and crash through a wall landing on a bed where a man and a woman are lying, and the man looks at the woman who just landed on his bed suggestively. A woman trips over an easel and men grope her as they help her up. A woman wearing a low-cut top leans over a man in the front seat of a car to access a keypad outside the window and more of her cleavage is exposed. Men and women flirt with each other in several scenes. Women wear low-cut, tight-fitting tops that reveal cleavage throughout the movie: one such woman has coffee spilled on her chest and we see part of her bra, and another woman's top is open to expose bra. We see a portrait of a man who is loosely draped across the hips, exposing his bare chest and bare legs. References to sex and sexual innuendo include: A man opens a package that contains a sexual device; a man says to a woman, "...having sex with a stranger"; there are several discussions about a woman having "had a man"; two men discuss a woman's "roster" of sexual partners, and a woman talks about having had too much to drink and then having sex with a man; a woman's nickname is also a slang for an anatomical/sexual reference and it is spoken repeatedly; people talk about "feeling like it"; a man remarks about the size of another man's endowment, and a woman remarks about the size of a man's endowment; a woman says she slept with a man, a man and a woman talk about using protection during sex, and a woman talks about sexually suggestive gestures; a woman asks a man to have sex with her, a man accuses another man of trying to have sex with his wife, a man suggests that he has had forced sex with another man, and a man talks about another man having had sex with a woman other than his wife. Four men ogle a woman.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A dog chases a ball out a window, we hear car tires screeching, hear a thud and then see the grave of the dog with two people standing over it discussing what caused his death. A man waves a fireplace poker around breaking things and threatening another man, he then chases the man through a hotel with the poker until the police hold him. A man races his car into a gate, the car smokes and the bumper is crumpled. A man gets a big shock and is tossed backwards over a chair after trying to force a plug into a socket. A man and a woman begin kissing when a huge cockroach crawls across his face and neck and they both scream. A man is thrown down hard, onto the ground, during a flag football game (he stays down for a few minutes). A man is hit in the head with a heavy ashtray, and a man is kicked in the face. A man jumps out of a bathroom window and hurts his ankle. A man gets his foot caught in the toilet of an airplane bathroom; when a woman tries to help him out, they end up crashing through the door and hitting a woman waiting outside in the face (we see her with a bruised and bandaged face later). A car crashes into a snow bank and the occupants are unable to get out (the snow covers the doors). A woman is hit hard in the face by a football that knocks her to the ground. A woman slaps a man in the face, and a woman hits a man with a bra. A man carries a woman over the threshold and accidentally bangs her head into the door. A man and a woman bonk each other in the nose and we see them both with gauze in their nostrils. A man drives his car recklessly, knocking over several cement planters around a driveway, a car crashes into the back of another car pushing it over a cliff (no one was in it and we see the car on a tow truck later). A woman trips over a luggage cart and ends up on the floor. A man shoves a woman, and she is knocked into a man who spills coffee all over her chest. A woman throws gum in a man's hair and he has to cut it out with scissors. A man and a woman inadvertently break up a hotel room: a piece of the ceiling falls on the floor, a wall light falls, and they crash through a wall and land on the bed in the room next door. People yell at and insult each other in several scenes. A man pounds on an answering machine breaking it, and a man pulls on a car's steering wheel until it breaks off. A dog bites a man's pant leg, snarls and barks at him in a few scenes and a man is swarmed by pigeons in a square. A woman's nose bleeds. A woman accuses a man of having drugs in his rectum and he is searched by airport security off-screen, but we see him walking strangely and limping afterwards. A man comes out of a bathroom and two people outside are overcome by the odor, and a woman flatulates repeatedly as she goes up stairs, with two people behind her.

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.
