A Walk on the Moon | 1999 | R | - 9.3.6

A restless housewife (Diane Lane) falls for a hippie salesman (Viggo Mortensen) while vacationing with her family during the summer of 1969. Also with Liev Schreiber, Anna Paquin, Tovah Feldshuh and Bobby Boriello. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 9 - Several instances of sexual innuendo, lots of kissing, often passionately, and several passionate embraces. We see a man's bare backside and a woman's bare breasts as they have intercourse with lots of thrusting. A man nuzzles a woman's neck as he stands behind her, unzips her skirt, puts his hand down the front of her underwear and caresses her breast underneath her shirt; they then move to the floor, he puts her feet on his shoulders and removes her skirt and they have intercourse with little, then lots of thrusting (by the end of the scene they're obviously naked but we only see their bare shoulders). A boy and girl kiss passionately and lie on the ground, but the girl gets up a few seconds later after the boy refuses to have intercourse with her. A man in boxers and a woman in a slip kiss on a bed. We see a naked woman's full front and back sides and a naked man's backside as they skinny dip. We see a woman's bare breast through her open shirt. A woman removes her bra from underneath her shirt and briefly touches her clothed breasts as she looks in a mirror. We see a woman's bra through her wet shirt and we see a woman in her bra and panties. Many people in bathing suits (one woman is seen in a tiny bikini) and several women in short shorts and cleavage- and midriff-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man is punched in the face and gets a bloody nose. A man grabs a woman and forces her to kiss him; also, a man grabs a boy and girl and tries to force them into a car. A girl is slapped twice and a girl slaps a woman. A girl pulls another's hair and a girl playfully slaps another's head. A boy has several red boils on his chest and face after being stung by wasps. For a split-second, we see menstruation blood on a girl's panties. A man throws a milk carton at a wall.

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.
