Time Code | 2000 | R | - 5.4.7

Four intertwining stories about Hollywood executives and actors shot in single takes with hand-held cameras and shown in four segments of the screen. With Saffron Burrows, Richard Edson, Salma Hayek, Holly Hunter, Kyle MacLachlan, Mía Maestro, Leslie Mann, Julian Sands, Stellan Skarsgård, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Steven Weber. [1:37]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A little sexual innuendo (including a reference to ménage à trois) and several kisses (some are passionate and a few are between women). In an extended scene a man and woman kiss passionately, he kisses and caresses her clothed breasts and stomach, he runs his hand underneath her skirt (we see her bare leg), she unbuckles his belt, and they have intercourse with thrusting and moaning (both remain clothed). Studio executives watch "dailies" of a film production during which we see the faces of a male actor and a female actor who are moaning and thrusting as if having intercourse (we see and hear this for a while). A woman sits on another's lap, runs her fingers through her hair and kisses her a little. In two scenes we see a woman stroking the hair of another woman lying on her lap. A man and woman embrace each other for awhile during a script reading. A couple of women wear cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A person is threatened with a gun and then shot; we see the person lying on the floor with slightly bloody fingers and blood soaking the carpet by the body. A woman grabs another by the neck, shoves her in a car and appears to punch her several times; also, a man hits a cabinet with his fist and a man puts his arm around another's neck and pulls him to the ground. Four earthquakes throughout the movie cause some people to fall to the floor, but no one is ever injured. Two people yell at each other.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 15 F-words, an anatomical reference, several scatological references, a couple of mild obscenities, and many 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.
