The Muse | 1999 | PG-13 | - 4.1.3

An over-the-hill Hollywood screenwriter (Albert Brooks) seeks advice on writing his next script from an eccentric woman (Sharon Stone) who is believed to be a Muse. Also with Andie MacDowell, Jeff Bridges, Mark Feuerstein, Steven Wright, Bradley Whitford, Mario Opinato, Dakin Matthews, Concetta Tomei, James Cameron, Bobby Edner, Lorenzo Lamas, Wolfgang Puck, Rob Reiner, Martin Scorsese, Cybill Shepherd, Jennifer Tilly, Stacey Travis and Steve Valentine. [1:37]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A little mild sexual innuendo. Two children say a statue looks phallic. A couple of women are seen in cleavage-revealing tops and we see a nude woman's bare back, buttocks and the side of her breast as she's getting into bed alone.

VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - Played for laughs: two men run into each (one is knocked to the ground) and a man verbally threatens a boy and reaches across a counter trying to grab him.

LANGUAGE 3 - Two clinical anatomical references (said by children), several scatological references and many mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Muses, Greek mythology, Hollywood, confidence, inspiration.

MESSAGE - You never know how or when creativity will strike you, nor in what form inspiration will come; part of the secret to success is believing that you can and will be successful.

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.
