Money Kings | 1998 | R | - 3.4.10

A kind-hearted bookie/bar owner (Peter Falk) is given a young, tough-guy partner (Freddie Prinze Jr.) to help him collect his clients' outstanding debts before he retires. Also with Lauren Holly, Timothy Hutton, Tyne Daly, Paul Lazar, Tony Sirico, Steve Sweeney, Roger Robinson, Frank Vincent, Colm Meaney, Tonya Tyann Tullis, Pamela Bel Anu and Billy Strong. Originally titled "Vig" as a made-for-TV movie. [1:36]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to fellatio). A kiss. A drunken man gropes a woman's clothed breasts. A man forces a woman to repay part of her debt in sexual favors: in one scene it's implied they have intercourse (before the scene ends, we see him kiss her neck and unbutton her shirt, revealing a bit of her bra) and in another scene, he kisses her neck and face, licks her forehead, unzips her pants and fondles her bra-clad breasts. We see a few women in cleavage-revealing shirts, a woman wearing a towel and a shirtless man taking a shower.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Three men are shot and killed (we see some blood on their shirts). A man is slapped and another is spat upon. A man is physically thrown out of a bar after he tries to punch someone. A man is thrown to the ground and slapped repeatedly. Some verbal threats and one instance of threatening with a gun.

LANGUAGE 10 - About 46 F-words and lots of anatomical references, scatological references, mild obscenities and insults. A couple of racist remarks and a racial slur.

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.
