 A woman gets a text message that says that her husband is out to dinner with another woman. A married man admires and greets a woman in church and his wife is disapproving.
 A man tells another man, "You better not have somebody on the side." A woman says of her husband, "If he's not getting it from me, he's getting it from someone else."

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man with a knife lunges toward two women in a parking garage: one woman tells him to put down the knife, "In the name of Jesus," and he looks confused, but he does. A man imagines his wife being attacked and we see a man hit her and she falls to the ground; the first man runs and pulls the attacker and sees that it is him.
 We see a sequence with images from war as a voice over describes a man's position with the military being a strategist and that he died from a heart attack; we see and hear helicopters, we see explosions and wounded soldiers with some bloody wounds.
 Several men play basketball and one man seems to be playing angry and another man asks him about it. A woman appears to be eating angrily pounding her fork into her plate and a young girl watches her apprehensively.
 A husband and his wife argue about money in a couple of scenes. A man and a woman argue outside a house and the man gets into a car (we do not see him leave). A woman talks about how people fight and that not many people do it well. A woman says that submission in a marriage is, "Learning to duck so the God can hit your husband." A woman says that arguing a lot is not fighting well. A young girl challenges her mother about how much she loves her and the mother realizes that she has not been paying enough attention to her. A young girl tells her friend that she wished that she lived at her friends house because her own parents fight all the time when they are together. A woman yells for the devil to leave her home and her family and to, "Go back to hell." A man says that he is not a good man, that he is selfish and prideful. A husband says that he is tired of his wife and "her junk" (meaning family, etc.). A man admits to stealing pharmaceuticals from his company. A man is fired from his job for padding his sales numbers.
 A young girl remarks about her mother's feet smelling really bad; there are several other references to the fact that the woman's feet smell bad. A man (an EMT) talks about a woman that choked on garlic and he had to give her mouth-to-mouth. A man vomits in a restroom at a restaurant: we hear him gag and cough (we do not see vomit). A man gags when he smells a woman's breath.

A woman eats a couple of servings of ice cream and says that she has a "sugar rush."

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.
