Kingpin | 1996 | PG-13 | - 4.4.4

Woody Harrelson and Randy Quaid are bowlers trying to win money on the bowling tournament circuit.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Lots of sexual innuendo including references to oral sex, bestiality, homosexual acts, transvestism, and masturbation (a couple of gross sexual jokes and graphic sexual references). Kissing, clothed breasts and buttocks of women often fondled by men and scantily clad women. A necking couple with the man fondling the woman's clothed breasts, erect nipples showing through clothing, a naked woman lying in bed with sheets up to her neck, smoking -- obviously post-sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Sometimes played for laughs: a man is pushed and shoved by an angry crowd and his hand is shoved into a ball return machine as he screams and begs. Some hitting and shoving, men are hit/kicked in the crotch, a woman puts a cigarette out in her hand. A fistfight which results in some blood. Animal abuse: a man hits and bites a snake after the snake bites him, a horse's hooves are accidentally cut off with the horse screeching. Hot coffee is thrown in a person's face and on a baby. Reckless driving.

LANGUAGE 4 - Many scatological references, some mild obscenities and anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Conning and hustling, disability.

MESSAGE - Don't give up on your dreams.

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.
