Very Bad Things | 1998 | R | - 7.8.10

In this black comedy, five friends' lives spiral out of control when they try to cover up a prostitute's accidental death during a bachelor party. With Jon Favreau, Cameron Diaz, Christian Slater, Jeremy Piven, Daniel Stern, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Leland Orser, Russell B. McKenzie, Joey Zimmerman, Tyler Cole Malinger and Kobe Tai. [1:41]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Some sexual innuendo. A couple of kisses -- two men kiss briefly. A nude man and woman have intercourse standing up, moving from wall to wall with lots of thrusting, moaning and sex talk; her breasts and both of their bare backsides are visible. A topless woman dances suggestively on men's laps, putting her breasts and clothed crotch in their faces. A woman's bare backside is seen several times as she's lying on the floor (see Violence/Gore below).

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Several people are killed or injured with common household items: While having intercourse, a man accidentally pushes a nude woman's head into a towel hook; in several scenes we see the hook sticking out of her head and blood surrounding her as she lies face-down on the floor. A man is stabbed in the chest with a corkscrew and we hear him screaming and flailing around; we see his bloody corpse a few times. A man is hit in the face with a coat rack; we see his very bloody face, hands and clothes a few times. A man runs his car into another, smashing a man between them. Corpses are dismembered with a saw (we see some bloody flesh hanging from the blade afterwards) and we see bloody body parts wrapped in plastic. We see a very bloody room several times and in a few scenes we see some blood on people's faces, hands and clothes. Two cars collide head-on; a passenger flies through his car's and then the other car's windshield. A woman hits her head on a dashboard; in a later scene, she has black eyes and a bandaged nose. A man and woman crash through a glass door and a man jumps through a glass table and gets a few bloody cuts on his cheek and arms. A man and woman kick and punch each other; they also try to smother each other with pillows. A few men are tackled, two men scuffle, a man is choked, a man rolls down some stairs and a woman bites a man's crotch. In a rage, a man beats and destroys a sign with a hammer. We see a man in a hospital bed with a very bloody face and tubes running all over his body.

LANGUAGE 10 - Nearly 120 F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological references and lots of mild obscenities and insults (some are spoken by kids).

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.
