What's Love Got to Do With It | 1993 | R | - 5.6.6

Based on Tina Turner's autobiography, "I, Tina," it is a story of domestic abuse, with scenes of mental and physical violence.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - No nudity, but there is a very disturbing rape scene in which characters are clothed (Ike attacks Tina in a sound booth).

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - In addition to the rape scene, there's lots of domestic violence. Ike drags Tina by the hair and punches her in the face and stomach several times. Tina gets a bloody nose and mouth three times. In one scene, she fights back and bloodies Ike's nose, and kicks him in the stomach.

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.
