The Replacements | 2000 | PG-13 | - 6.4.6

Based on the 1987 NFL strike, amateur players are recruited to fill the uniforms of professional football players in this comedy. With Keanu Reeves, Gene Hackman, Brooke Langton, Jack Warden, Jon Favreau, Rhys Ifans, Orlando Jones, Brett Cullen, David Denman, Gailard Sartain, Art LaFleur, Faizon Love, Michael Taliferro and Ace Yonamine.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Several instances of sexual innuendo (including references to lap-dancing, oral sex, masturbation and homosexuality) and one passionate kissing scene. Several shots of scantily clad cheerleaders; in a couple scenes they touch themselves and each other suggestively, pose in sexual positions, and dance as if they're stripping. While dancing in a few different scenes, cheerleaders hold their clothed breasts, one thrusts her hips, a woman smacks another woman's behind as she's bent over, a woman grabs a bent-over woman's behind and presses her hips into it, and another pulls up her skirt and reveals her panty-clad buttocks. A man licks his fingers and rubs his nipples on the outside of his shirt, a man thrusts his hips suggestively, a woman pushes her tongue into her cheek (in reference to fellatio), a man in his underwear grabs his crotch, and a man gestures as if he's sticking his finger up his rear end. We see close-ups of a few cheerleaders' underwear as their skirts fly up. A clothed man straddles another clothed man and begins thrusting. A woman rubs ointment on a man's shoulder in a sensual way. We see a man's bare buttocks; also, a man wearing a towel flashes another man (we only see his towel-covered backside).

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Numerous tackles, kicks, and hits on the football field; in one scene a man is injured after being tackled. There's a bar brawl in which several men kick and punch each other; one man gets thrown into a glass window. A man dunks another's head in a drum of water, a man grabs another by the neck and chokes him, a man grabs another's facemask and yanks his neck, a man punches another in the helmet and knocks him down, a few scenes in which a man punches another in the head a few times, a man headbutts another, a man knocks another onto the ground underneath a football tackle dummy machine, and a man puts a knife against another man's cheek and threatens to stab him. A few men push a truck over on its side; also, a man shoots a car several times. A man has a cut on his nose and blood drips down his face on a few occasions. A man vomits twice. People throw several eggs at a bus.

LANGUAGE 6 - One F-word and several started but unfinished F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological references, many 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.
