The Last Mimzy | 2007 | PG | - 1.3.2

A young boy and girl discover a strange box on a beach containing what they think are toys. By manipulating the alien-looking objects, they become smarter and capable of hearing everything, and communicating telepathically. They also become aware that humankind is dying because of our excesses and carelessness. With Chris O'Neil, Rhiannon Leigh Wryn, Joely Richardson, Timothy Hutton and Megan McKinnon. Directed by Robert Shaye. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A husband and wife kiss in several scenes.
 A man and woman take off their clothing and walk toward a bright light holding hands (we see the silhouettes of their bodies with no real detail). A man gets out of bed wearing a T-shirt and underwear, and a woman wears a low-cut top that reveals cleavage.
 A husband and wife sleep together in bed.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We see what looks like aliens shooting a man (it's presumed that he dies, but there's no gore).
 FBI agents force their way into a house and take a family away to a research facility.
 A boy holds what we are told is a generator, it shoots an energy beam, jolts around and creates a forcefield, a girl's hand gets stuck in the forcefield and she is lifted into the air, and several people try to get to her but are knocked back; the boy then pulls on her foot and frees her. A girl puts her head in a web of light, her face is atomized, she begins to twitch and thrash, and she is pulled back away from the light but continues to thrash (she's OK).
 A girl levitates off her bed and her family is frightened. A woman is frightened and runs out of a house screaming when a girl makes stones spin and levitate off the floor. A girl spins several stones that hover over the floor and they create a web of light; when she puts her hand in it her hand is atomized (she is not harmed).
 A crystal is sucked into a gelatinous object, it makes a loud noise, changes shape and causes a major power outage. A boy finds a box on a beach, and when he touches it, it whirrs, makes noises and opens up.
 A man puts his hand in a paper bag and pretends to be bitten, and then pulls out a jar with a two-headed snake in it. Many large bugs crawl onto a security camera and a large bug crawls across a table.
 A girl talks about aliens stealing our brains. A girl says "I love the world. I don't want it to end."

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.
