See Spot Run | 2001 | PG | - 3.5.4

A postman (David Arquette) who can't stand dogs ends up befriending one for the sake of the little boy (Angus T. Jones) he has to baby sit, but Spot is no regular pooch -- he's an FBI wonder dog. Also with Michael Clarke Duncan, Leslie Bibb, Joe Viterelli, Steven R. Schirripa, Anthony Anderson and Paul Sorvino. [1:33]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A reference to casual sex and several jokes about testicles. In one scene a man implies he can lick his own crotch. A man affectionately tickles a woman's belly. A man's boxers get caught on a building and we see him in only a long shirt that covers his groin; it's implied that he exposes himself to police officers who make him raise his hands. We see two men tied up and gagged; one man is seen in his underwear, and the other's bare chest is visible. We see a woman wearing a night gown, a man in boxers, a woman wearing a cleavage-revealing top, and a woman wearing a midriff-revealing top.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Almost all played for laughs. Some threatening with guns and a few shots fired. A man fires several shots at a dog but misses. Twice, a dog attacks a man's crotch and supposedly bites off the man's testicles (in one of the scenes the man is also knocked through a window); later we see the man walking uncomfortably and hear loud knocking sounds because the man's testicles have been replaced with steel balls. A man wearing an electric dog collar is shocked several times (especially after putting his hand in water); he's tossed into a wall and we see a chain of bruises on his neck. In a similar scene a man holding a electric dog collar gets shocked. A dummy explodes. A man throws a dog out of a second-story window. A man and two women punch and push each other, a man jumps on a man who's sitting on a couch, and a man uses a slingshot to fling a meatball into another's forehead. A boy jumps off a couch and hits his head on the floor, a man slips and falls on his back, a man's head is caught in a cage, a man's head is trapped in a fish bowl (the bowl breaks when he falls to the ground), a man's face is frozen, a man is tied up/covered in plastic, and two other men are tied up and gagged (they're apparently stripped to their underwear). A dog jumps on a man's back and bites his jacket several times, a dog chases a man up a tree and then the man falls out of the tree, a dog with a pole in its mouth knocks down two men, and a dog knocks a man into a stack of canned goods. A dog slides into a fence and also knocks down some shelves. A truck crashes into a fire hydrant, a bus rolls off a cliff, and a car crashes into a fence after a boy standing in the back of a moving van throws boxes at it (no one is injured in any of these incidents). A man scratches his clothed buttocks a couple of times; also, a man tries to pick up a dollar bill by pinching it between the cheeks of his clothed buttocks. A man spits up cereal. A dog urinates on a man's leg. A man steps, slips and falls in dog excrement, getting it all over himself. A man dangles from a drain pipe and then falls several feet to the ground, landing in excrement. A zebra passes gas, igniting a flame; also, a few other instances of human and animal flatulence. A man has a slightly bloody cut on his forehead.

LANGUAGE 4 - Several anatomical and scatological references, some mild obscenities, a few religious profanities, some name-calling, and a few racial slurs.

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.
