Who Is Cletis Tout? | 2002 | R | - 6.6.6

Two men break out of jail planning to retrieve a stash of diamonds that one of them had stolen and hid many years earlier. In the process, one of the men (Christian Slater) acquires the identity of a dead man named Cletis Tout. What he doesn't know is that someone has a contract out on Tout's life and so now he has to not only run away from the police, but also the mob hitman (Tim Allen) who's after him. Also with Richard Dreyfuss, Portia De Rossi and Billy Connolly. [1:33]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - We see a fully nude woman from the front on a morgue table. A woman begins to unfasten a man's pants, they kiss and he carries her to another room where we see him without his pants (we see part of his bare buttocks); he puts her on a table, slaps her face a few times and thrusts repeatedly while holding his hand around her throat. A man and woman kiss. An effeminate man talks suggestively and flirts with another man. A woman wearing a bra top and short shorts (that reveal cleavage, bare thighs and bare abdomen), gets into a man's car and we hear that she is a prostitute. A man and woman kiss on a movie screen. Two men talk about the film "Deliverance," sexual ambivalence and references to homosexual sex and rape. A man blows a kiss to another man.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man is shot by two men who are in the process of shooting up a store; we see the man with a bloody chest wound and a man and woman have blood covered hands from trying to stop the bleeding (we hear that the man died). Two men are shot in the head and we see the bloody bullet holes; and although we don't see the shooting, we see two other men with bloody bullet holes in their foreheads. We watch a man and woman having rough sex and hear that the woman was strangled during the session. A dead man with a bloody head wound is tied by the hands to the steering wheel of a car; the car catches on fire and explodes and we see the smoldering, charred body after the fire is put out and again in the morgue still attached to the steering wheel. We see a woman's dead body in a morgue with autopsy scars around her breasts and down her chest; she is also bruised around the neck. We see two dead bodies in a morgue with bruises, and one has a bloody face. A woman shoots at a group of men walking in a street and a car's windows are shot out in the process. A man steals a truck and police officers fire their guns at him blowing out the windows. A man pulls two guns on a group of men and forces them to paint themselves with the graffiti paint they had been using on walls. A woman slaps a man in the face. A man pulls a gun and kicks a door down while in pursuit of another man. Two men jump from a bridge into a moving train car, a man falls from a fire escape onto the ground and a man jumps from a fire escape ladder into a dumpster. A man opens his door and another man on the other side of the door holds a gun in his face (we see this scene a couple of times). A man yells at two men a couple of times and accuses them of "killing the wrong man." A man is grabbed by the throat, shoved back against a table and threatened by another man. We see a man tied to a chair and with tape over his mouth in a few scenes. A man is handcuffed to a safety deposit box. A man burps loudly.

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.
