Mafia! | 1998 | PG-13 | - 4.4.5

"The Godfather" gets the "Airplane!" treatment from comedy director Jim Abrahams. With Lloyd Bridges, Jay Mohr and Christina Applegate.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Sexual innuendo, including references to masturbation, forced sex, pornography, oral sex and impotence. A girl's clothed breasts grow and her nipples become pronounced. Women wear cleavage revealing clothing, and skimpy costumes during a strip club scene, revealing bare buttocks. Sex noises are audible and a man and woman are seen having sex: the man is topless and she is in her bra. A man's erection is used as a bird perch.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man is thrown after a car explosion; a building also explodes. A boy is shot at, a man is shot and wounded, and several men are shot and killed. After some killings we see bloody bullet holes. A man's thumb is shot through a rifle and a boy picks it up. A woman punches a man, a boy's head is knocked into a door frame and a man's head is kicked off. Some people are zapped with a cattle prod, a man is sprayed with poison and dies and a man is stabbed with flower stems (blood trickles from his mouth). A dead man's face (it doesn't appear to be real) is stepped on and a tiger is shown eating a woman's leg (it doesn't appear to be real either). We see a man's burned face. Some threatening with knives and guns. Some scatological humor.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word, a couple of scatological terms, many derogatory terms for women, several anatomical references, several mild obscenities and insults.

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.
