Since You've Been Gone | 1998 | R | - 5.2.8

David Schwimmer, Lara Flynn Boyle, Teri Hatcher, Joey Slotnick, Philip Rayburn Smith, Heidi Stillman, David Catlin, Thom Cox, Laura Eason and Joy Gregory attend their 10-year high school reunion to see old friends and find new loves.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo. Some passionate kissing (in one scene, we see many couples kissing in an auditorium). While a man and woman kiss passionately in a car, the man unzips the woman's dress and in the next scene we see her wearing only a bra and panties. A woman pours sugar on a man's bare stomach and chest and licks it off. A man ties a woman's wrists to a Jeep's crossbar and they have intercourse with movement (we see her bare back). We also see them having intercourse with sound and movement against a car: the man's hands are covering the woman's bare breasts; we see their bare shoulders and arms, and in the next scene we see their bare legs sticking out of the car. Several women wear cleavage-revealing dresses.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A woman threatens to kill another. Two people spit on a man who's bound to a chair and gagged. Two scenes take place in the men's bathroom; we see and hear men urinating and zipping up their pants. We see a woman sitting on a toilet. A scuffle.

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

MESSAGE - Most of us don't change much at all from our high school days.

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.
