Snatch | 2001 | R | - 6.10.10

Brad Pitt plays a bare-fisted boxer in this heist/dark comedy about several men in the business of stealing diamonds, fixing fights, back-stabbing and murdering for personal gain. Also with Benicio Del Toro, Dennis Farina, Vinnie Jones, Rade Serbedzija, Jason Statham, Alan Ford, Mike Reid, Robbie Gee, Lennie James, Ewen Bremner and Jason Flemyng. [1:44]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Several instances of sexual innuendo, including references to sadism, anal and oral sex, and sex with another's mother. Also, there's a sexual reference about the Virgin Mary and an extended sexual analogy with graphic anatomical terms. We see the bare breasts of a few topless women in a nightclub, as well as several photos of bare-breasted women on playing cards. Two women kiss a man on the cheek. We see a man in his underwear with his shirt on, several shirtless men, and a man in a tailor's store without pants (his shirt and jacket cover his underwear).

VIOLENCE/GORE 10 - Lots and lots of threatening with guns, with many shots fired and several people killed throughout the movie. A man commits suicide by putting gun to his head and pulling the trigger; we hear a loud shot and then see lots of blood splatter on the wall. We see a man grab a knife, go to a corpse, saw away a bit and then pull up the part of the corpse's arm he just sawed off (blood on the arm). We see men with knives and body bags ready to cut up a living man they've captured. We hear a man is shot in the face and killed; then we see the lower half of the corpse. Several men are shot several times in the chest; we see some blood on the chest of a few of them. We see lots of blood dripping down a man's face after being shot. Specific instruction on how to cut up a body into six pieces and feed it to pigs. Several times men are pistol whipped in the head with a gun. Several instances of men having guns pointed at their heads. A man puts a knife to a man's neck and threatens to cut his head off. A man knocks glass into a man's eye. Men hold a man down on a pool table and whack him with a hammer. A man is zapped with a stun gun. A man is suffocated by having a plastic pulled over his head. Several violent, bare-fisted fight scenes, with numerous punches and headbutts and lots of blood. A man grabs another man's genitals. A man punches another several times in the face and throws him into two fences. Several times a man punches other men and knocks them out, often causing much blood. A man is choked. A man's head slams into a boxing mat very hard. A man slaps a boy in the back of the head. Men take bats and bust up several gambling machines. A man hits two men over the head with a bat, knocking them out. We see many men with many cuts and scrapes and blood on their faces several times throughout the movie. A trailer home with a woman sleeping in it is torched (arson), killing a man's mother as the son looks on; we later see the remains of the charred trailer. A man slams a man into a car and then slams the door on his head several times; we see lots of blood dripping down the man's face. A man grabs another by his neck tie and pulls him into a car; then rolls up the window, locking the man's head in it, and begins to drive away with the man's head still stuck in the window. The man chokes a bit and then is set free and tumbles away. Two men are run over by cars (very loud and surprising both times). A car wrecks into a building, and a sword goes into a passenger's gut, killing him. A car backs into a van. A man puts another man in a car trunk. A corpse is put into a car trunk. A man opens a door and hits another man in the face who's walking by. We see a dead dog killed from a dog fight. A man hits a dog with a can. Two dogs attack a rabbit. A man almost cuts open a dog with a knife but never goes through with it. A dog chews on a man's leg, causing blood and bite wounds. Talk of cutting off a man's foreskin. A man vomits.

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.
