Sugar and Spice | 2001 | PG-13 | - 5.4.5

A popular high school cheerleader gets pregnant and convinces her fellow cheerleading friends to help her rob a bank so she'll be able to provide for the baby. With Marley Shelton, James Marsden, Marla Sokoloff, Mena Suvari, Rachel Blanchard, W. Earl Brown, Melissa George, Jake Hoffman, Alexandra Holden, Nate Maher and Sara Marsh. [1:20]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo, including references to wet dreams, male genitalia, incest, lesbianism, and prison sex. A few instances of passionate kissing. A girl talks about having an orgasm while riding a horse. A girl talks about losing her virginity. A girl talks about how seeing pictures of Christ on the cross turns her on. A boy licks ice cream off his girlfriend's bare belly. A girl suggestively licks an ice cream cone. A girl pulls up her skirt and puts her hand on her underwear. A girl talks about women in prison having brooms shoved up their "you know what" (that's what she says). A girl stuffs something up her shirt to pad her breasts. A girl implies she has breast implants. An older woman is obviously interested in/aroused by teenage girls in their cheerleading outfits. Talk of trading sex for guns. A few scenes of girls in their night gowns; a few scenes of a girl in her bra. We see the bare shoulders of a girl in a towel. Lots of cleavage. Two transvestites.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A girl accidentally kicks a boy in the face. A boy is hit in the head with a football. A girl slaps a boy in the face. Threatening with guns and shots fired; a man's hat has a hole shot through it while he's wearing it. A girl punches another girl in the face and pulls her hair. Twice the camera scans under bathroom stalls as we see girls passing a box of tampons to one another. We see five boys peeing at urinals. A girl vomits twice. We watch an antelope giving birth. A pregnant girl passes gas a few times. Talk of an ear being cut off in a video.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word, one implied F-word, and one bleeped out F-word, several anatomical and scatological references, a few mild obscenities, some religious profanities, several insults.

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.
