Maverick | 1994 | PG | - 2.3.3

Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster and James Garner star in this rough-and-tumble Western comedy based on Garner's "Maverick" TV series from the '60s.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Gibson is shown shirtless a few times and Garner and Gibson are shown naked from the waist up in a bathtub. Foster and Gibson kiss passionately a few times and their bare shoulders are seen during a scene where they are obviously having sex.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A great deal of almost cartoonish violence, including lots of gunfights, threats with guns and fistfights. A man is shown on a horse with a noose around his neck. A bank is blown up. A man beats up four men by punching them and hitting them with a frying pan, and he chokes one. A dead man is shown, but the scene is used to comedic effect. A man is dragged under a runaway stagecoach, and hangs off a cliff. The blood consists of bloody noses and mouths, after brawls.

LANGUAGE 3 - About three scatological terms, a few mild profanities, and a few sexual innuendoes.

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.
