The World's Fastest Indian | 2005 | PG-13 | - 4.4.5

Anthony Hopkins stars as Burt Monro, a 68-year-old New Zealand man who broke the world speed record by riding his meticulously restored 1920 Indian Scout motorcycle on the Bonneville Salt Flats of Utah. Based on a true story. Also with Christopher Lawford, Bruce Greenwood, Paul Rodriguez and Diane Ladd. Directed by Roger Donaldson. [2:07]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man wakes up in bed with a woman (he is bare-chested and she has bare shoulders), and she tells him to come back "lover boy" when he gets up. A woman wakes up in a man's cot (we see her bare shoulders), and she runs out into the street wearing a bathrobe and the neighbors look at her disapprovingly. A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage.
 A man and a woman hug and kiss and the woman invites a man to come to see her for a "snuggle" (implying sex). A transvestite kisses a man. A man and a woman kiss in a few scenes. Two women hug a man and kiss him on the cheek. A man and two women hug.
 A man talks about a powder being an aphrodisiac and a sex aid. A woman propositions a man and he refuses. A transvestite tells a man, "I am not a girl." A man asks a woman out on a date.
 There is a reference to "dirty old men need love too." A coin box next to a bed reads "sensual massage." Men and women dance the twist.

 A rattlesnake lunges at a man three times. A man has an angina attack and is taken to a hospital by ambulance.
 A man traveling very fast on a motorcycle loses control, the motorcycle topples over and he is dragged along the ground -- the man yells but is relatively uninjured. A man on a motorcycle races several others on motorcycles: they speed along a beach, and the man flips off his bike and lands hard on the ground but is OK.

 A boy is disgusted when he realizes that the water he used to make tea came from a barrel that a man uses to cool hot metal parts. A man files his toenails with a sander. A man urinates on a tree in several scenes (we see the trickle). A boy urinates on a tree (we hear a trickle).

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.
