A Simple Plan | 1998 | R | - 5.7.8

A pact to secretly split a large sum of money quickly turns good friends into greedy, murderous enemies. Bill Paxton, Billy Bob Thornton, Brent Briscoe, Bridget Fonda, Jack Walsh, Chelcie Ross, Becky Ann Baker and Gary Cole co-star. [2:01]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - We briefly see a pregnant woman's bare stomach and breasts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Lots of threatening with guns and lots of shots are fired; three men and a woman are shot and killed (we see lots of blood on and around them). It's implied that a man shoots and kills himself. A man is hit on the head with a tire iron; later, he's suffocated and then placed on a snowmobile that's driven into a river. We see a bird pecking a corpse's face; birds also peck a man's forehead and we see a slightly bloody cut. Several punches are thrown, and we see some blood on people's faces.

LANGUAGE 8 - About 25 F-words, several anatomical references, lots of scatological references and many mild obscenities.

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.
