What's The Worst That Could Happen? | 2001 | PG-13 | - 5.3.7

A thief (Martin Lawrence) and the billionaire (Danny DeVito) he tried to rob engage in a titanic tit-for-tat battle over a "good-luck" ring the billionaire steals from the thief. Also with John Leguizamo, Glenne Headly and William Fichtner. [1:34]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man acts out sex by thrusting his hips and wiggling. There is a lot of sexual innuendo and references to sex (including homosexual sex): a man mistakenly thinks another man is propositioning him and is interested, a man shows interest in another man, a man plays a game with a woman in a bathtub and it is implied that he uses his hand to satisfy her, a man loads a gun and expresses his arousal. There's a really quick scene that shows a man and woman presumably having sex on an elevator with the woman moaning and calling the man's name. A man throws himself on a woman on a couch and kisses her; she shows interest for a moment and then throws him onto the floor. There is a scene showing a woman with really large breasts in a little, tiny top leaning over a man and massaging him. A man does a dance in his boxer shorts and tuxedo jacket and then jumps into bed with a woman. A man and woman are shown in bed presumably after having had sex; we see the woman's bare shoulders and they kiss a couple of times. There are a few other scenes showing couples kissing. A couple flirts in several scenes. A man looks at a Playboy in the bathroom while Miss September is in a tub full of bubbles (we see her bare shoulders and knees popping out through the bubbles). A woman is seen fresh out of a bathtub with bare soggy shoulders; she covers herself with a towel. A woman bends over and a man ogles her behind. A woman is seen in a halter dress exposing some cleavage, a woman is seen in a bathrobe and skimpy nightie and many women are seen in evening gowns with bare shoulders, backs and cleavage.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man shoots at a man several times. A man jumps out of the window of a moving car and lands hard on the street. Two men wrestle, one man pours wine on the other, one man jumps across dining tables and flips a security guard onto the ground. Two men wrestle on a boat and it runs into things and eventually begins sinking. A woman uses mace to spray several men pointing guns at her. A man threatens a burglar with a gun, a man is hit in the crotch by a tennis ball, and a man is hit in the face by a door. A woman slaps a man in the face twice. A large group of people in a tent stampede out when smoke fills the air and people yell fire. A man yells at other people a lot. A man pretends to beat himself up. A dog passes gas a few times.

LANGUAGE 7 - One F-word, about 15 scatological terms (3 of which are seen in handwritten letters), one reference to urination, about 13 sexual terms, 19 anatomical references, 31 mild profanities, a lot of name-calling and 12 religious profanities. The following were used in a TV broadcast and were bleeped but were obvious nevertheless: 8 F-words, one scatological term, 3 anatomical terms and one mild profanity. This scene also includes a woman translating obscene terms in sign language, using all of the applicable obscene hand and body gestures.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Stereotypes, stealing (burglarizing and robbing, as well as stealing as a business), bankruptcy, bribery, infidelity, proving one's love, mysticism (tarot cards, good luck baubles).

MESSAGE - Everybody's in on the game.

(Note: One character is portrayed, in a stereotypical and extreme manner, as being gay by the way he dresses, his gestures and his interests: he is particularly fond of Bichon Frise dogs and he is particularly interested in figure skating, for example. Other characters refer to him as being weird.)

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.
