The Perez Family | 1995 | R | - 5.3.5

Alfred Molina is a Cuban released from prison after 20 years who, enroute to be reunited with his family, meets a former prostitute (Marisa Tomei).

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A couple of glimpses at women's bare breasts. At least five scenes where we see a man's bare buttocks. In a shower scene, there are about five men shown from the back (we see buttocks and briefly, barely, glimpse genitals). One character wears clinging dresses and exposes a great deal of cleavage throughout the film. A woman dances suggestively grinding her hips against a man. Many passionate kisses and scenes of fondling and caressing. A man pulls down a woman's skirt exposing her panties. A man kisses a woman's bare legs, and the woman squeezes his crotch. A suggestion that a woman is masturbating.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man is shot in the hand and we see a puddle of blood. A man is kicked and a gun is pointed at his head. A man hits a wall with his fist and breaks his hand. Some yelling. A woman is scared by a guard dog, screams and runs. A boy is chased by a man in a car and later is threatened with a knife. A boy runs into glass and knocks himself out (he is shown with a soiled bandage on his head later).

LANGUAGE 5 - Two F-words, several scatological references, and some milder obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Political prisoners, Cuban refugees, living in a foreign country.

MESSAGE - You must live and not wait for someone if they might not return. Sometimes your family are people you are unrelated to by blood or marriage.

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.
