Rounders | 1998 | R | - 5.3.10

A law-school student and reformed poker addict is drawn back into the game when the friend he used to hustle with is released from prison. Starring Matt Damon, Edward Norton, John Malkovich, John Turturro, Gretchen Mol, Famke Janssen, Martin Landau and Michael Rispoli.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sexual innuendo (including references to homosexuality). Several kisses. We see some topless dancers in thong underwear. In two scenes, some scantily clad women are sitting around what looks to be a brothel (twice we see a woman kneeling before a clothed man, presumably ready to perform oral sex). A man moves his hips in a sexual manner while taunting another man.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man drags another man out of a bar, then punches him a few times in the stomach and face (he gets some bloody cuts on his face). Two men are punched and kicked by a group of men (their faces are very bloody). A man threatens to kill two men.

LANGUAGE 10 - About 135 F-words, many anatomical references, lots of scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and a couple insults.

MESSAGE - Pursue the career you're best at, not the career others encourage you to pursue.

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.
