Wicker Park | 2004 | PG-13 | - 6.3.5

Josh Hartnett stars as a man who is a rising star in an advertising firm, who's just managed to put a failed love affair behind him and is on the verge of proposing to his new girlfriend. However, when he thinks he has seen his lost love in a café, he becomes obsessed with finding her. He puts his life on hold and scours the city, only to run up against lies, deceit and betrayal. Also with Matthew Lillard, Rose Byrne, Diane Kruger and Jessica Pare. Directed by Paul McGuigan. [1:55]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A man and a woman have sex: we see him on top of her thrusting and they both have bare shoulders; we then see them in bed together. A woman pulls a man into her apartment, they kiss, begin to remove each other's clothing, continue kissing (we see bare shoulders and backs and other obscured bits of flesh) and we see them sleeping together in the morning. A woman takes off her robe (we see her bare shoulders and part of her back), kisses a man (we see his bare shoulders and part of his back) and we see them in bed covered by sheets later (he looks under the sheets, apparently realizing that he is nude and they have had sex). A man and a woman hug and kiss and hold each other, and a man and a woman kiss a few times. A man kisses a woman on the cheek and neck. A man describes his physical endowment and sexual prowess to another man. A man asks another man if he had sex with a woman. A man tells a man that he had sex with his girlfriend, all night. A woman tells another woman that she found her boyfriend in bed with another woman. A woman wearing a low-cut, slinky dress (revealing cleavage, bare shoulders and back) dances in front of a man, she tries to entice him into dancing with her, and she lifts her skirt to reveal her bare thigh. A woman puts her foot on a man's knee while he helps her try on a shoe. A man flirts awkwardly with a woman. A man admires a woman he sees in a video, he sees her in the street and follows her. A man watches a woman in a dance class. A man on a street watches a man and a woman in a window and they appear to be caressing each other (he is jealous). A man showers (we see him obscured through an opaque shower curtain, and see his bare shoulders when he pokes his head out). Women in a dance class wear low-cut, tight-fitting outfits that reveal cleavage.

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.
