SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman kiss in a long shot and in several close-ups; we then see him lower her dress to the floor (we see a close-up of her bare abdomen) and he removes his shirt to reveal his bare chest as the camera pans back and we see his tight-fitting briefs and thighs as he leans over the woman, whose wearing a bra and panties while lying on a bed; the scene ends and sex is implied.
 A man and a woman kiss passionately at an airport after he proposes to her. During a dream sequence a woman dances with a man and her sweater rides up to reveal her bare abdomen and the small of her back a few times; after the dance, the man holds a toy stethoscope to her buttocks and she says that sometimes men want to touch her booty and she does not like that and the man kisses both of her hands, then kisses her lips and in real time she wakes up sitting next to the man in his pickup truck. A man and a woman decide not to get married and they kiss briefly.
 Two gay men kiss in greeting briefly at an airport. A woman walks into a hallway and shows her boyfriend a pan of cookies that look like penises, then shows him a glass of milk and asks him to come back inside their apartment (sex is implied). We see a man sitting in a bathtub filled with bubble bath and when he climbs out we see his tight briefs and tattoos across his upper chest and upper back; we also see his bare legs to the thigh and a female friend refuses to get undressed and sit in the tub with him.
 A female flight attendant has a substantial bosom and she keeps her shirt a few buttons unbuttoned to show significant cleavage and men on the flight stare at her; she leans her bosom on a man while she picks up debris from between his feet on the plane and he holds his breath until she leaves. A woman wears an extremely tight, clingy, short dress that reveals a significant amount of cleavage and reveals most of her legs to the thigh and stretches enough to show skin through it; three men stare at her behind as she walks away. A bare-chested, shirtless man wearing knee-length shorts in a gym stares at a woman with substantial bosom as she runs on a treadmill (her bosom bouncing). A woman in bed wears a tank top with straps that reveal bare shoulders and cleavage while her mother sits on the bed and tells her to find a husband. A woman's skirt rises up twice: the first time, we see the lace tops of black hosiery and part of her thighs; the second time, we see her buttocks covered by briefs under panty hose, with a shirt above that. We see a woman wearing a bra and panties. Some women wear gowns that expose some cleavage and others wear short skirts that bare most of their legs to the thigh in several scenes. A woman wears tights with a loose shirt and sweater, accentuating her curvy legs in one scene, and short-shorts in another scene, baring most of her legs to the thigh.

A woman says that a man will dip his turkey neck into another woman's gravy (be unfaithful). A woman completely covered by a long robe lies face down on a massage table as a masseur touches her shoulders as she says into her phone, "69, I mean 59" and the scene ends. A woman tells a female friend that the friend can enjoy sex while looking for a husband; however, a male friend tells the first woman that she just likes to have sex (using a crude term).

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
