The Out-of-Towners | 1999 | PG-13 | - 5.3.3

In this remake of Neil Simon's play, empty-nesters Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn take a trip to New York City that tests their marriage and their sanity. Also with John Cleese and Mark McKinney. [1:31]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo: in one scene, people discuss sexual problems and make references to masturbation, promiscuity and bondage. A couple of passionate kisses. We briefly see a man with his pants down lying on top of a clothed woman and it's implied that they were having intercourse. We briefly see a few S&M toys -- whips, etc. -- hanging on a wall and a woman wearing a leather outfit (only her shoulders and face are visible). We see a woman in a cleavage-revealing nightgown and a man in his boxers.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Nearly all played for laughs: There are two mild instances of threatening with guns. And some reckless driving: a man and woman jump out of a car (they're not injured) and a car drives through an open air market, smashing some stands. A man and woman are knocked down when suitcases hit them and a woman accidentally shoves several others. A man nearly falls off the side of a building. A woman grabs and pulls another by the arm. We see and hear a man urinating.

LANGUAGE 3 - A few anatomical references (one is clinical), some mild obscenities and a few insults.

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.
