Love, Wedding, Repeat SEX/NUDITY 5

 – A man and a woman on a couch kiss passionately for several seconds twice, she wraps a leg around him and we see her full bare legs up to the buttocks, with a glimpse of underwear. A man begins to kiss a woman on a sidewalk and another man interrupts them. A man interrupts another man and a woman kissing on a sidewalk and the first man shouts at the second man to go way, which he does, and the kiss lasts several seconds. A man aggressively kisses two younger men on one cheek and one of the younger men exclaims that he was kissed on the mouth and that he felt some tongue. A man sticks his tongue into a woman’s mouth and quickly licks it several times.
 A woman enters a bathroom to see what looks like two men engaged in oral sex (please see the Substance Use category for more details) and she is stunned and leaves. A man sits in another man’s lap briefly. A bride and a groom dance closely, smiling at each other. A man points to another man and says the second man brags about his big genitals; in the end credits, the first man pulls down the second man’s trousers at a wedding to reveal boxer shorts and after a struggle, the second man pulls up his trousers. A man wearing a kilt at a wedding reaches under the garment and rubs his groin several times, once telling a woman that his testicles are wrapped around his other parts (we do not see anything but his bare knees); she looks stunned and walks away.
 A man serves as the maid of honor at a wedding but says that he wants to be called “man of honor,” and everyone keeps calling him maid of honor. A couple argues about sex with the woman asking the man if he slept with another man; he says no, then yes, and claims the other man rated him “37 out of 10” and ask her, “…think what you’ll be getting from me,” before they break up. A bride cries that she had sex with a male casual acquaintance two weeks before her wedding and that he was an ex-prostitute; when her husband finds out he leaves her. A woman tells friends at a banquet table that another woman and a man had too much sex in their relationship, but no one comments; she makes a sexual gesture with her hand and makes rude mouth noises. A man wearing a kilt asks a woman what she was wearing when she was kidnapped and she looks annoyed. A man stares at a woman from afar and she looks uncomfortable and walks away; but she finally leaves with the man and we see nothing further happen with them. A man at a microphone doing a toast announces that he loves a woman and she smiles. A man says that he is not sexy; another man tells him to stop talking about himself so much and he will be more attractive to women.
 A bride’s gown is sleeveless and shows some cleavage. A woman wears a tight-fitting dress off the shoulder and clinging to her curves. A woman facing away from the camera wears a mini dress that bares legs to about five inches above the knees and bares her shoulders. Several women wear V-necked dresses that reveal some cleavage.

Love, Wedding, Repeat VIOLENCE/GORE 4

 – A bride and groom argue (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details) on a stone balcony and as she comes near to him, he falls backward over the railing, but the frame freezes; the event rewinds back to the beginning of their wedding reception and the fall does not occur. In a dozen scenes, different couples argue briefly: in one scene, a woman head-butts a man in the face and he shouts in pain, grasping his nose (when he releases it, the bottom half of his face and his hands are dripping blood). Two different women slap a man hard in the face. In a montage of wedding happenings, two women slap at each other fast several times and the scene ends.
 A man accidentally ingests a sedative (please see the Substance Use category for more details) rushes to a washroom, sticks his fingers down his throat, and gags, but does not vomit; a man with longer fingers enters and the first man begs him to put his fingers down his throat until the first man kneels and sucks on the other man’s fingers, and a woman enters to see what looks like oral sex, and she looks stunned and leaves (no vomiting occurs). An inebriated man annoys a woman and declares that he will save her from her husband. After staggering around a wedding under the influence of drugs a man is grabbed by another man, who slams him against a wall, shouts and the man grabs him by the neck, takes him to an empty room and locks him into a closet, where he shouts and pounds his fists; a woman hears him and releases him. A drugged man is startled awake, staggers around a reception, grunts and nods off again while talking to a man, staggers back to his own seat, falls asleep and gags when a child drops mints into his mouth (he does not vomit). A man spits coffee onto the back of a woman’s head and she snarls, “Animal!” A man rubs his hands in lichen on a stone wall and then tastes it, wincing. A man and a woman pour a plate of food and goblet of an unknown drink in a man’s lap and he looks stunned. A woman twists a man’s nipple through his suit to get his attention and he shouts in pain.
 An accidentally inebriated man (please see the Substance Use category for more details) is introduced to another man, sits at his banquet table, grunts, crosses his eyes, nods off to sleep, staggers away, and finally staggers to a microphone to make a toast where he grunts, mumbles incoherently, stumbles around, walks away and grabs two handfuls of wedding cake, smashing it into his own face as the quests applaud; two other men haul him away and he finally slides down a wall in a hallway and falls asleep. A man in another scene falls asleep in a hallway. A man in another scene falls asleep on a woman’s shoulder at a banquet table.
 An inebriated man gags at a microphone and says, “It’s coming up,” causing guests to wince (no vomiting occurs). A woman says about a man, “I’ll kick the living stuff out of him.” We hear that a bride’s parents are dead. At a table, a tearful woman tells a man that she was kidnapped in Afghanistan, her mother died of cancer, and her boyfriend loved to have sex with anything that had an orifice; the man she is talking to falls asleep.

Love, Wedding, Repeat SUBSTANCE USE

 – A man swallows white powder from a small vial with a tiny spoon and stumbles from a taxi into a wedding slurring his words, a man enters a washroom and accidentally drops a drug-filled vial down a toilet, a woman tells a man that she takes a few drops of sedative and it is strong enough to knock out a horse, a woman asks a man to drug a wedding guest and the man complains about using a “roofie” before agreeing and dumping the small vial into a champagne glass but when children change all the place cards the wrong man gets the drug and he nods off to sleep (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details), and in several iterations of the wedding we see different men and women ingest the drug and fall asleep. In many wedding reception scenes several men and women sip champagne at tables, a man and a woman each chug a full glass of champagne, several wedding toasts take place with clinking glasses, waiters pour champagne into glasses at tables and carry full glasses on trays, two men and a woman sip wine, we see a few bottles of clear liquors at a bar as a woman drinks two martinis and chugs two shots of clear liquor, and three men hold highballs.

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.
