The Temp | 1993 | R | - 3.7.5

Timothy Hutton and Lara Flynn Boyle star in a thriller about a temp that wants to make it to the top of the corporate world -- and will do anything to reach her goal, even if that includes murder.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - There are a few sexual comments, and we see Boyle dressed in a negligee (all that is apparent is cleavage). Boyle is briefly glimpsed lying on a bed in a darkened room, while writhing and groaning. Masturbation is suggested.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man gets his hand caught in a shredder and we see a great deal of blood spray his face, a dead man's splotched, discolored face is shown, a corpse is shown hanging, two people eat cookies and bleed from the mouth -- with one person briefly spewing blood on the other -- a security guard is shown with a knife in his bloody chest, two fistfights with no blood, two people are hit in the head with a steel pipe resulting in blood, and a woman falls to her death, but no blood is shown.

LANGUAGE 5 - Eight F-words, and other more minor obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Murder, marital separation, using sex to get ahead at work, deceit and betrayal.

MESSAGE - The corporate world is dog eat dog and some people will do anything to get ahead. The good guy does win in the end.

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.
