Sugar Town | 1999 | R | - 5.2.10

A look at aging rock musicians and wannabe actors in LA who're just looking for some recognition, success and love. With Rosanna Arquette, Ally Sheedy, Jade Gordon, Michael Des Barres, John Taylor, Martin Kemp, Larry Klein, John Doe, Lucinda Jenney, Jeffrey McDonald, Richmond Arquette, Lumi Cavazos, Vincent Berry, Polly Platt and Chris Mulkey. [1:32]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to fellatio) and many kisses, some passionate. It's implied that a woman performs fellatio in a car (we see her head duck below the window before the scene ends). We see a woman in a slip lying in bed with a shirtless man, obviously post-coitus and discussing her past as a prostitute. A girl gives a pair of panties to a man. A man playfully slaps a woman's buttocks while they're dancing closely. We see a pregnant woman's bare breasts twice (once while she's showering and once while she's in labor) and her bare belly a few times; also, we see a woman in her bra and panties, a woman in a bra and the upper part of her thong-covered buttocks and lots of women in cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - We see a man die, presumably from a drug overdose, after taking several labored breaths (a woman sees him in pain but ignores him; the scene is more comical than dramatic). A woman slaps a man's chest, a man slaps another several times and a man pushes another against a fence. A woman talks of being raped, but we later learn she was lying.

LANGUAGE 10 - About 60 F-words, a profane finger gesture, lots of anatomical and scatological references, several mild obscenities and an insult.

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.
