Premonition | 2007 | PG-13 | - 3.5.5

Sandra Bullock stars as a woman whose life seems perfect, although her marriage is strained and she doesn't really know why. When she gets news that her husband has died in an accident, she spirals into a nightmarish ritual of waking up each day to find out that days seem to be out of sequence, and sometimes her husband is still alive. While she's trying to figure out what happened, she also wonders whether she somehow played a role in his death. Also with Julian McMahon, Mark Famiglietti, Kate Nelligan and Nia Long. Directed by Mennan Yapo. [1:36]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A husband and wife kiss, the woman caresses the man's legs, helps him take his shoes off, they hug and we see them lying nude in bed together, presumably after having sex (we see his bare chest and her bare back and shoulders).
 A woman wears a tank top and a nightgown that reveal the outline of her nipples in a couple of scenes. A woman showers and her bare shoulders and back are visible. A woman wakes up wearing a man's shirt and we see her bare legs. A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage.
 A wife climbs into a shower with her husband (he is bare-chested and she is wearing a nightgown) and they hug.
 A husband and wife lie in bed together, and the man sleeps while the woman watches him. A husband and wife kiss and hug.
 A woman calls a married man and invites him to join her in a hotel room. A husband and wife tease each other and the wife says "I thought you loved me for my body."

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A young girl crashes through a plate glass window and we see deep bloody cuts on her face; we then see her with large stitches. A young girl has large deep cuts on her face, which have been stitched in several places and her mother reacts with dismay when she sees her.
 A truck speeds toward a stalled car, the truck jack-knifes, strikes the car, peeling the top off, and then the two explode (a woman witnessing the accident screams and cries).
 A casket is dropped and a man's body falls out and onto a road (we see just a flash before a sheet is thrown over it, but it is implied that the remains are gruesome and the head may even have been severed); the wife of the man screams and tries to go to him. We see people grieving at a funeral.
 Lightning strikes a power box on a pole, a bird is struck and knocked to the ground (we see it twitch briefly) and a loose cable flaps in the air near a man and a woman, who run to safety.
 A woman is grabbed by two men who carry her out of her house screaming and put her in an ambulance (we see her later strapped to a bench and then a table where she is given an injection).
 A woman opens the lid of a garbage can where a dead bird is, and flies are swarming over it. A woman falls down on the ground and her hand squishes into a dead bird (we see blood and matter) and she scrubs her hands and arms hard to remove the blood.
 A wife is told that her husband was killed in a car accident (she appears to go into shock) and that a truck jack-knifed and struck his car. A woman tells her two young children that their father is dead. We hear a story about a man who shot his children fearing that they were sick, and then shot himself when he found out that they were not sick after all. A little girl asks about her sister's "ugly scars."

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.
