Although disappointed to learn that he is merely a janitor, he finds out that there is still a lot of excitement in his life when he helps uncover a black market computer chip operation. Also with Lucy Liu, Nicollette Sheridan, Callum Keith Rennie and DeRay Davis. Directed by Les Mayfield. [1:31]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man watches a woman wearing skimpy underwear (her cleavage, bare abdomen and part of her bare buttocks are visible) as she dances for him; they dance together, she pushes him into a bed, she climbs on top of him and comes close to kissing him. Two women fight with punches and kicks and a man imagines them wearing skimpy lingerie and playing in a bubble bath together.
 A woman wears a very low-cut dress that reveals cleavage, she walks toward a man with a suggestive look and he watches her with interest. A photo of a woman shows her wearing a low cut dress that reveals part of her bare breast. A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage. A man looks at a magazine where a woman is pictured in a bikini that reveals cleavage and bare abdomen.

 A man propositions a man he thinks is coming to meet him for a pre-arranged date, and he gives him his suggestive online handle. A man wakes up in a bed next to someone who he thinks is a woman, and he caresses and smacks the buttocks of the person before realizing that it is a dead man. A man tells another man (in crude terms) to shoot him in the buttock, he repeats the phrase several times and another man walks into the room hearing the remarks and assumes something sexual is happening.
 A man bends an elderly woman over, leans her against an elevator door and slaps her buttocks several times (she seems to enjoy it; in the outtake reel the elderly woman is slapping the man's buttocks).
 We see photos of a man and a woman in suggestive situations at a holiday party (he has his head resting on her chest in one of them).

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man is shot in the chest (we see blood) and another man is struck in the head with a lamp and falls unconscious.
 A man chases a man and a woman, they get into a car and speed away, he jumps on the top of the car, the driver shoots a gun through the roof toward him, and he falls off. A man falls off a terrace, crashes onto the hood of a car, rolls off and drives away.
 People shoot back and forth at each other in a building, a floor-waxing machine slams into one gunman knocking him down, and another man slips on fresh wax twice, slams onto the floor and then through a plate glass window. A man and a woman are shot at as they run away and one of them shoots back.
 A woman fights with two men using punches, kicks, a plunger and a broomstick, and one man is struck in the crotch with the broomstick. A woman is punched hard in the face, and a man is struck in the face with a bucket. Two women fight with punches and kicks. A man punches a man in the stomach and then holds a gun on him. A woman slaps at a man, and then stomps on his toe and slaps him again. A woman pours a pitcher of ice in a man's lap and slaps him in the face.
 A man wakes up in a bed next to someone who he thinks is a woman, and he caresses and smacks the buttocks of the person before realizing that it is a dead man (we see blood on the man's chest). A man jumps out of bed in a panic when he sees a dead man in bed next to him; he then steps on broken glass twice and has a bloody spot on his head.
 A man flashes back to combat situations where there is gunfire, there are explosions, and loud helicopters in several scenes.
 A man tells another man to shoot him, and chooses where (he does not get shot). A man hits several golf balls erratically, one hits a window in the distance (we hear the crash and a man yelling), and another hits a vase breaking it.
 A man sings a rap song that is about all things scatological and cleaning bathrooms.

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

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.
