Strike! | 1998 | PG-13 | - 4.2.2
Kirsten Dunst, Gaby Hoffmann, Heather Matarazzo, Monica Keena and Caterina Scorsone are a group of clever and ambitious boarding-school girls who thwart the administrators' plans to merge with a boys' school. Co-starring Lynn Redgrave, Rachael Leigh Cook, Merritt Wever, Matthew Lawrence, Robert Bockstael and Vincent Kartheiser.
- Lots of sexual innuendo. Kissing, often passionately. A boy in boxers and girl in a slip kiss in bed, then try to figure out how to use contraceptive foam (the can eventually explodes all over them). A woman undresses a man down to his boxer shorts; we later see them kissing (her dress is unzipped). While a man kisses a woman, he unzips her dress and lifts up her bra (we don't see her breasts). A woman rubs her hips against a boy as they slow dance, and he suddenly jumps away from her, pulling his jacket over his groin (it's unclear whether he has an erection or he ejaculates). A girl moans and moves as if she's having intercourse. A girl reaches for a man's crotch. We see lots of girls in slips and bras, one girl wearing a towel and several pictures of scantily clad women in a catalog of sexual toys. We see several boys in their boxer shorts and a naked man covering his groin area with his hands.
- Some boys punch a few other boys. We hear a girl vomiting and see lots of boys vomiting.
- One anatomical reference (plus a couple slang terms), one mild obscenity and several insults.
- Practical jokes and schemes, drinking, learning about one's sexuality, friendship, standing up against authority figures, bulimia, sexual harassment.
- Girls have the brains and the ability to be and do anything they want.
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.
