When a man (Michael Caine) dies he leaves his surviving family members -- his son (Christopher Walken), his grandson (Josh Lucas) and his great grandson (Jonah Bobo) -- a map and instructions for how he wants his ashes to be distributed. Thus, they embark on a journey that takes them through painful memories of their lives and brings them closer together and more in touch with themselves. Also with Glenne Headly. Directed by: Jordan Roberts. [1:25]
SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man talks fondly, a couple of times, of having made love to a woman on a rock. A woman invites a man to join her in her bed (they are clothed and watch a movie together, although it is suggested later that they had sex). Two men and a boy talk about sex fantasies: the boy describes a girl kissing him, and one man talks about a woman nude in the back seat of her mother's car. An elderly man says that he was aroused by his nurse. An elderly man ogles a woman sleeping.
VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A horror movie on TV shows a person being sliced in half (we see the two body pieces separate, we see blood and other matter and hear a woman screaming). A man slumped over a table lies motionless and we understand that he has died (a young boy is nearby and witnessed the man's death). A dog lying on a bench takes a labored breath and dies. A man riding in a truck dies (he sort of drifts off). We hear that a boy was thrown down a flight of stairs and injured his leg. A man yells at his dog abusively, yanks on his leash and ties him into the back of a truck. A man reads a story about a person being disemboweled. Two men yell at each other. People sprinkle the ashes of a man and his dog in several places (one time over the grave of a woman). A man talks about his mother dying in a car accident. A man talks about
his wife having died. We see a human skull in a room with artifacts scattered around. We see a mounted boar's head with large teeth hanging on a wall. A man talks about his father leaving him when he was young. The false teeth of a man hang from his car's rear view mirror. We hear a man vomiting. Two men and a boy urinate on the side of a road.
