- Lots and lots of sexual innuendo (including references to male genitalia, fellatio, homosexuality and orgasms) and a few kisses. A man nuzzles a woman's neck and touches her clothed breast; also, we see a clothed man and woman kissing passionately. We hear loud moaning and then see a mostly sheet-covered couple having intercourse (we see her bare legs sticking up in the air); it's implied that they have intercourse many, many times (we see water fountains and hear moaning for a while) and in a later scene we see them sitting up and talking (we see her bare back and the side of his bare body). We see a man on top of a woman, kissing her stomach and then talking to her (we see her bare breasts and the side of her bare legs and buttocks when she gets up from the bed). A man wearing an unbuttoned shirt and a woman wearing a partially open robe (her breasts are visible) are sitting on a bed and about to have intercourse until he tries unsuccessfully to put on a prophylactic (we don't see his genitals; the scene ends shortly thereafter). We briefly see a couple completely covered by a sheet and moving, obviously having intercourse. A man hits and grabs his clothed crotch a couple of times while talking to women; in one scene, we see his bare backside (an object blocks most of his bare buttocks) as he appears to be hitting his genitals against a counter to get them to work. A man's genitals make a humming noise when he is sexually aroused (we hear this many times throughout the movie; in one scene, we hear many men's genitals hum). In a bar, we see a topless woman in a thong dancing suggestively and a topless woman wearing stars over her nipples; also, we see photos of a nude man's backside (part of his buttocks is visible) and a topless woman in Playboy, a nude female 3-D image (it looks like a Barbie doll), a nude man holding a shower curtain and then some clothing in front of his genitals, a nude baby boy and a pregnant woman's bare belly. In several scenes men ogle women (the camera sometimes shows a close-up of the women's clothed buttocks or breasts) and we also see several women in cleavage-revealing tops and a woman wearing a see-through mesh dress over what looks like a swimsuit.
- Mostly played for laughs. A man is shot (we see a little blood on his shirt) and falls backwards into a fountain; a man pulls the corpse out of the water and carries it away on his shoulders. Twice, we see a light beam hit a plane, causing some of its passengers to fall down or fly through the air (no one appears to be injured). A man punches another, a woman slaps a man, a few people are shoved, a man runs into a door while looking at a woman, a woman passes out face-first on a bar and a woman throws a TV remote against a wall. We see a woman yelling in pain during labor; later, we see the baby with a little bloody tissue on its head. One scene of reckless driving; also, a car backs into another and a car hits a baggage cart. A baby urinates in a high stream and hits a few people's faces. A couple of instances of threatening with guns. It's implied that a prophylactic shatters some glass when a man lets go of it while trying to put it on.
- About 6 F-words, lots of anatomical references and slang terms, many scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and several insults.
- Aliens, trying to conceive a baby, pregnancy, marriage, infidelity, promiscuity, love, emotions, kidnapping, Alcoholics Anonymous, drunkenness.
- Your heart often rules your mind, especially when it comes to love -- and that's a good thing.
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.
