Say It Isn't So | 2001 | R | - 7.5.7

A man without a family (Chris Klein) meets the ideal woman (Heather Graham), has sex with her and is ready to propose -- only to find out she's ostensibly his own sister. Also with Sally Field, Richard Jenkins, Orlando Jones and Suzanne Somers. [1:37]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Lots of sexual innuendo, including several references to incest, oral sex, masturbation, casual sex, anal sex and male rape. Several kissing scenes. Lots of cleavage, and a woman rips open her shirt and we see her bare breasts -- which are pierced. We see a shirtless man in bed while allegedly his girlfriend is under the sheets performing fellatio on him. However, it turns out to be his pet cat and from the man's surprised reactions during this scene we can tell the cat licked more than his penis. We see a tattoo on a woman's bare buttocks. An obviously naked -- but mostly covered by blankets -- couple kiss and make love (no nudity is visible other than bare shoulders). We see an obviously naked man and woman in a hot tub, with the woman underwater, performing fellatio; she comes up for air and he shoves her head back down into the water. A man's head is stuck between another man's thighs, with his face right by the man's covered anus. A person's foot caresses a man's inner thigh under the dinner table. A man talks about masturbating in front of a beautiful car, and proceeds to lay on the car and caress it. A man says he's going to tie a man to a tree and have anal sex with him. A man talks about having sex with his dead wife. A man is repeatedly castigated and teased for having sex with his sister (with mostly crude terms). A man's biological mother turns out to be the woman he used to fantasize about while masturbating during his teen years.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Nearly all played for laughs. A woman has her nipples pierced, and a woman pokes a man in the cheek with scissors. A woman accidentally cuts off the top of a man's ear; we see a little blood and a close-up of the remaining ear (later we see the man's bandaged ear). Throughout the movie a stroke victim is the source of many jokes (he's in a wheelchair, he must talk with a voice box, his movements are slow, etc.). We see a dead coyote on the road, killed by a car. A man hits another in the head with a metal pipe. A man with two fake legs is hit by a truck; the legs fly up in the air, but the man is not hurt. A man is punched and is suffocated. A man is pistol-whipped in the head and knocked down a hill. A car rams into another car, causing an explosion; one man apparently dies (we hear his body was eaten by coyotes). Two men carrying a handicapped man drop him to the ground. A man is handcuffed and slammed into the hood of a car. A man is put in a straightjacket. A woman slaps a man in the cheek, and a woman slams a man's head against a car hood and then she has a heart attack and falls to the ground. A woman holds a gun near her head and it's implied she might kill herself (she does not). A man punches a cow several times and accidentally gets his fist caught in the cow's anus (twice). A woman pulls bikini wax off another woman -- it obviously hurts. A man spits up.

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.
