We see a few scenes in a women's dressing room; a few women are in their bras. A man slaps a woman in the buttocks twice. A female mannequin has breasts. A man stuffs padding into a woman's bra; a woman stuffs padding into her bra. One man is presented as stereotypically gay.

A woman knocks a man to the ground, punches him a few times in the face, and kicks him. A woman kicks a man in the face. A man and woman wrestle for several minutes, flipping, grabbing and kicking each other. A woman is almost hit by a car. A woman screams in pain after having her bikini wax ripped off. A woman trips several times. A woman has a bandaged cut on her nose. A beauty crown explodes (it's not on anyone's head) and causes a fire and havoc. A female mannequin explodes. A man pulls a woman into a pool.

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.
