Up Close and Personal | 1996 | PG-13 | - 4.3.6

Michelle Pfeiffer is a newscaster on her way up and Robert Redford is her mentor and the man who loves her.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Passionate kissing (sometimes while lying down), shots of bare chests (his) and shoulders. A man and woman kiss and tear off each other's shirts in an office (no nudity). A couple kiss and take off their clothes; then they're in a bed with the man bare chested and a very small part of the top of the woman's buttocks is seen. Oral sex is implied here.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A prison riot with fires and explosions and people beating each other up, a dead body with blood coming out of his ear, news footage of battle scenes.

LANGUAGE 6 - Two F-words, many scatological references, a handful of mild obscenities, some anatomical references.

MESSAGE - You have to do what you love -- no matter the danger or sacrifice.

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.
