Lithium Springs | 2004 | NR | - 3.2.1

An easy-going, down-on-his-luck adventurer finds a map in a library that shows where in a Florida swamp the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon (of the Fountain of Youth fame) hid a chest of gold and jewels 450 years earlier. With his loyal dachshund he sets off to find the treasure and become rich, but he's instead seduced by the beauty of Central Florida's rivers, springs and swamps. With Carter Lord, Esther Luttrell, Rebecca Renfroe, Henry Lawrence, Lee Perkins, Teza Lord and Fred the Dachshund. Directed by Carter Lord. [1:33]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - We see a man in a tiny Speedo rubbing a chemical on his body, and we also see him swimming. Women wear skintight spandex outfits, swimsuits, tight miniskirts and other outfits that reveal midriffs and cleavage.
 A woman wiggles her bottom, preparing for a golf swing. A woman tries to act seductively and grabs and kisses a man.
 A man says about a woman, "She was all over me like a new suit of clothes." Someone asks a man, "Do you have a woman?"

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A small Dachshund attacks a police officer and bites him in the neck (no gore is evident and the officer seems fine afterward).
 A man is struck with a golf ball a couple of times and he's rendered unconscious (he seems fine otherwise).
 People shoot some sort of spring loading weapon (nobody's injured). A police officer threatens a man with his gun, by putting his gun to his face. People grab and shove other people.
 A woman threatens to hit a man.
 A woman is scared by a snake and falls into water. We see mysterious figures in the woods.

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.
