Nicolas Cage stars as a man who has the power to see two minutes into the future. Anxious to avoid becoming the focus of a government experiment into precognition, he works under an assumed name doing magic tricks and lives off small-time gambling winnings. But when terrorists threaten to explode a nuclear device, he is coerced into helping the FBI prevent disaster. Also with Julianne Moore, Jessica Biel, Tory Kittles and Michael Trucco. Directed by Lee Tamahori. [1:36]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A woman wrapped in a towel comes out of a shower and a man looks at her, remarks about her beauty and they kiss (we see them in bed later with the man bare-chested and the woman's bare shoulders are visible; it is implied that they have had sex).
 Several women are seen in the background of a Las Vegas dressing room: we see one wearing a cabaret costume, and she adjusts her breasts (cleavage, bare shoulders and legs are visible). A woman on-stage in a magic show wears a bikini costume that reveals cleavage, bare abdomen and legs. A woman wears a low-cut tank top and boy-short panties to sleep. A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage. A man takes off his shirt to change clothes and we see him bare-chested.
 A man and a woman kiss in a few scenes.
 A woman falls asleep in a car and rests her head on a man's shoulder (they had just met and she wakes up feeling awkward). A man watches a woman walk into a diner.

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.
