SEX/NUDITY 5 - A woman takes off her dress and we see her bare breasts, two
women swim topless in a sort of water ballet, and a woman wanders through a house topless.
A woman is shown changing her clothes and we see the sides of her bare breasts. A woman is
shown sensually kissing a man's knee and then they kiss, he kisses her stomach and back,
and they writhe around on a bed. A man and woman are shown in bed in the midst of having
sex -- they are interrupted. A man and woman kiss passionately. A man and woman are shown
lying in bed together a couple of times (he is bare chested and she wears a tank top) and
she caresses his face lovingly. A woman tries to kiss a man but he pushes her away.
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A man slaps a woman in the face. A man and woman quarrel
several times, once very enthusiastically. A man slips into unconsciousness while
underwater, but is revived by mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. A girl is shown covered with
suction cup arrows and a boy holds a bow ready to shoot another one at her.
