"One of the 50 Coolest Websites...they simply tell it like it is" - TIME

Return to Me | 2000 | PG | - 2.3.3

In this romantic comedy widower David Duchovny falls in love with a waitress (Minnie Driver) who, unbeknownst to both, received his wife's heart during a transplant operation the year before. Also with Carroll O'Connor, Robert Loggia, Bonnie Hunt, David Alan Grier, Joely Richardson, Eddie Jones, James Belushi, Marianne Muellerleile and William Bronder. [1:53]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Some sexual innuendo and many kisses. We see a woman sitting in a bathtub with her knees pulled up to her chest (her bare arms, shoulders and shins are visible), a shirtless man, a man wearing boxers and a T-shirt (he briefly does a comical "bump-and-grind" movement) and several women in cleavage-revealing tops (in one scene, we see a lot of cleavage when a woman partially opens her robe while looking in a mirror at a scar on her chest).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We briefly see a woman lying on a stretcher being rushed into a hospital (we see blood on her face and on the stretcher); we later learn she dies. We see a very sickly woman (bluish face and lips) lying in a hospital bed. A woman slaps a man. During a few scenes we see a man with lots of blood on his shirt (he's not injured but was helping someone who was). We briefly see what is presumably a heart wrapped in some slightly bloody cloth.

LANGUAGE 3 - A few anatomical references, some scatological references, many mild obscenities (in a couple of scenes a child repeats the word after an adult says it) and some insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Death of a loved one, heart transplants, falling in love, widowers, inhumane zoo habitats.

MESSAGE - Don't let fear stand in the way of loving someone. You can find true love twice in a lifetime.

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.
