SEX/NUDITY 3 - Several men and women kiss.
 A woman asks a man, "Will we all be showering together?" A woman asks a man if they will be going to second base and then third. A woman listens to a man and seems to be enamored. A man makes a comment about mom jeans and cameltoe. A man grabs his crotch and thrusts his hips toward a woman and she makes a dismissive face. A woman tells several people that another woman is on her period. A woman hugs another woman and they fall into a bed where one of the women lifts her leg in the air (there's no apparent sexual implication). A woman comments about a singing group all being breastfed. A woman remarks about the condition of her vagina. A woman announces that she is pregnant and another woman asks if she knows who the father is; the pregnant woman shrugs her shoulders. A music group's name is "Ever Moist." A woman talks about knowing some guys really well (there's a sexual implication).
 A woman puts her hands on another woman's clothed breasts as she pushes her behind a shrub to avoid being seen.
 Several women wearing low-cut tops and costumes (they reveal cleavage, bare abdomens and legs) and dance and sing in several scenes throughout the movie with thrusting hips and gyrations. Men and women wearing swimwear are shown poolside and we see men's bare chests, abdomens and legs along with women's cleavage, bare abdomens, backs and legs. A man tears open his shirt while fighting a woman and we see his bare chest and abdomen.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man with a large scar on his face pulls a knife and he and a woman fight with punching, kicking and slashing, and one holds a fry pan and a spatula; the man tears open his shirt and the woman sprays him with wasabi powder (he yells). A woman fights with 3 guards and punches and kicks them and knocks them with her elbow and head-butts them until they are all unconscious and she blocks the door to the room they are in. A woman punches a man in the face.
 A man grabs his adult daughter by the shirt and threatens her. A man kidnaps several women (he locks them in a van that transports them to his yacht) and threatens them. Several women dance and sing on a yacht while a man watches them; another woman breaks through the glass sunroof and sprays the man and two other men with a fire extinguisher as the women jump overboard and the ship explodes. A woman creates an explosive device and plants it on a yacht. A woman punches a shark-shaped balloon. A woman jumps from a stage into a crowd and they catch her; a man does the same thing. Several burning candles fall over and set curtains on fire as people run screaming out of a room; a beehive tips over releasing the bees into a crowd of people who break windows to free them. A woman jumps off a yacht and lands hard on an escape dingy but bounces into the water.
 A woman says, "All families break apart." A woman tells a man that he looks like a turtle. A woman talks about her father's dirty money. A woman threatens to kill her father when he threatens to send her friends, "Swimming with the fishes." A woman says, "Satan has left my body." Competitors in a music contest say disparaging things about each other in several scenes.
 During the end credits we see the women of the film in a variety of situations that seem like outtakes: one woman wears a police attack suit and she is taken to the ground by two German Shepherd dogs as they bite the heavily padded suit, and several women are shown crawling through a muddy area in what looks like an obstacle course.
 A woman puts her arm to the elbow into a cow's anus (she's studying to be a veterinarian) and we hear a squishing sound. A woman eats a piece of candy, spits out the wrapper and a man takes the wrapper and puts it in his mouth. A woman spits into shrubs and we see the goo. A woman says, "I feel like I'm gonna puke" (she does not).

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.
