Seven Days in Utopia | 2011 | G | - 1.2.1

A young golfer (Lucas Black) having been pushed by his father to compete professionally before he was ready, has a meltdown on the green and swears he'll never play again. While driving through a small town hoping to escape his humiliation, he crashes his car and meets a man (Robert Duvall) that just might be able to put him back on the right track. Also with Deborah Ann Woll, Brian Geraghty and Melissa Leo. Directed by Matthew Dean Russell. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A man leans to kiss a woman and she pulls away. A man asks a woman, "You gonna save a dance for me tonight?" and she does not commit. A woman watches a man walk away with interest. A man asks a woman to dance and she walks away from him. A man and a woman hug.
 A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage. A bull has enormous testicles that dangle between his legs.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A man driving a car swerves off the road to avoid hitting a cow, and the car jumps a pile of hay and lands hard on the ground (we see the driver with blood on his head).
 Four men sit in a rodeo ring and wait for a bull to charge them: one man is thrown by the bull, one man jumps a fence and lands in a barrel of water, one man runs away and the last one climbs a fence and is safe.
 A man attacks another man and shoves him to the ground; another man pulls them apart and shoves the first man (no one is injured). Two men on horses charge toward a woman and a man on horses.
 A plane loses power, descends toward a wheat field and the engine starts up again just before it lands.
 A man breaks a golf club over his knee. A man pounds on the ground with a golf club. A man throws a golf club. A man breaks his own car window using a golf club. A man throws items out of the trunk of his car after crashing. A man throws his cell phone out his car window and it shatters.
 A man yells at his father. Two men yell at each other. A man says, "I burned all my bridges." We hear that a man's father disowned him. A man says, "I'm about to throw up over here" (he does not).
 A man places a box in a hole in the ground in a cemetery. A man falls out of a boat while fishing (he's unharmed). A man falls in a pile of manure in a rodeo ring and we see him covered with feces.

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.
