- A man and woman kiss passionately, he picks her up, slams through a bathroom door, and they have sex: we see her bare thigh and buttock from the side as she wraps her legs around him, and her bare breast as he opens her blouse and kisses her chest. A man and woman argue, he tries to force himself on her, she refuses and eventually gives in; he takes off her pants and his shirt (he's bare-chested and we see her taking off her panties and see her pubic region) and they have sex in a hallway (with thrusting and moaning). A man and woman have sex in a movie theater: she sits on his lap and we see them moving rhythmically and hear them moaning. A woman bathes (we see her bare breasts, abdomen, thighs and part of her pubic region), a man joins her (we see his bare chest), he caresses her and kisses her knees and legs and we see her bare buttocks as she gets out of the tub. A man caresses and kisses a woman's bare abdomen, legs, he takes off her panties, he takes off his shirt (we see him bare-chested), he climbs on top of her and they kiss passionately. A man undresses a woman and caresses her breasts. A woman sits in a chair with her hand in her pants (she is apparently masturbating, however we don't see any movement) and a man watches her, and a man puts his hand in the back of a woman's pants and they kiss passionately. A woman wearing a slip climbs on a man's lap in bed, pulls down one strap of the slip (we see her bare shoulders and back), they kiss and lie back on the bed. A woman hits and punches a man as he is trying to have sex with her. A man and woman kiss in a few scenes. A man and woman hold hands in a couple of scenes, a man and woman hug, and a man and woman dance close together in a couple of scenes. A woman tries on lace panties and bra. We see a woman's bare back and shoulders as she sleeps. A woman's dress is blown open and up exposing her legs and part of her panties. A woman wears a nightshirt with slits up the sides that expose her bare thighs. Part of a woman's buttock is exposed during a wrestling match on TV. We see a bare-chested man in a couple of scenes.
- A man is hit on the head twice with a snow globe and blood streams down his face, pours into his open hands and forms a large puddle under him when he falls to the floor dead (blood also seeps through a sheet which is used to cover the body). We see a flashback to the murder. A body is shoved into the trunk of a car, dumped at a garbage dump, and rolled over by a steamroller. We see blood on a man's hands and chest. A woman hits and punches a man in a rage. A woman hits and slaps a man during a sexual encounter. A man and woman collide and fall hard on the ground (we see the woman's bloody knees a few times after this). A boy watches a wrestling match on TV and we see two women throwing each other around a ring. A car runs into a parked car and dents the trunk. A boy urinates and we hear the trickle. We hear a man gag. There are a couple of very heated arguments where threats of violence are exchanged.

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.
