A Perfect World | 1993 | PG-13 | - 4.5.4

Director Clint Eastwood also stars as a Texas sheriff who's after escaped convict Kevin Costner.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - There is one sex scene which takes place in a diner: we see a woman in her underwear and later her bare derriere is exposed. She simulates oral sex using a pickle as her visual aide. She and Kevin Costner start having sex on one of the restaurant tables, and he's shown licking her backside. A boy interrupts the "passion" and the scene is over.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - There is an attempted rape scene. A young boy, who is being held hostage, is slapped violently several times. A man is shot off-screen, and there's a close-up of his dead, bloody body. Another dead body is found in the trunk of a car, and there is a quick close-up shot. A family is held at gunpoint, and a boy shoots a man in the stomach; we see his bloody wound. The man is then shot in the chest -- it's bloody and graphic.

LANGUAGE 4 - A wide variety of creatively profane terminology, ranging from the scatological to the anatomical. No F-words.

MESSAGE - Things aren't always the way they appear to be on the surface.

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.
