The Story of Us | 1999 | R | - 5.2.7

In this comedy/drama directed by Rob Reiner, Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer star as a couple who agree to a trial separation after 15 years of an up-and-down marriage. Also with Rob Reiner, Rita Wilson, Paul Reiser, Julie Hagerty, Tim Matheson, Red Buttons, Betty White, Jayne Meadows, Tom Poston, Jordan Lund, Colleen Rennison and Jake Sandvig. [1:32]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo, including jokes about and references to masturbation, cyber sex, sodomy and oral sex. We see a married couple kissing passionately in the kitchen; he takes off her shirt, we see her in her bra, and then we see the man's bare backside as he walks away. In two quick flashback scenes, we see a couple making love in bed and taking a bubble bath together, but in both scenes we see only their bare shoulders.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Many scenes of a couple yelling at each other. We see a woman giving birth, and the newborn baby is covered in blood and fluids. A man hits a woman with a ping-pong ball.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 20 F-words, many anatomical references, some scatological references and many mild obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Love, marriage, divorce, sex, infidelity, parenting, loyalty, family life.

MESSAGE - Marriage is difficult, but if the good times outweigh the bad, then by all means stick together (especially if kids are involved).

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.
