Film based on Michael Crichton's novel, with Michael
Douglas as an employee who accuses Demi Moore, his boss, of sexual harassment.
SEX/NUDITY 7 - There's relatively little nudity: Douglas is shown
shirt-less, while Moore is shown in a very skimpy bra. But, there is one sex scene which
is extended and fairly graphic: There's a lot of deep, passionate kissing, grabbing at
private parts, and oral sex (the latter is quite evident, but not explicitly shown).
Throughout the scene, Douglas vacillates between resisting and joining in. A great deal of
sex talk (Moore and Douglas discuss their former, acrobatic sex life, Moore and Douglas
discuss what happened during the seduction in graphic, clinical detail) and some sexual
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Douglas discovers four bloody scratch marks on his chest
after the seduction, and a bloody palm. The only violent scene is the seduction scene: the
sex is rough and Douglas is resisting most of the time.
PROFANITY 6 - About 19 F-words, about 6 scatological terms, some mild
profanities and sexual references. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Sexual harassment, gender discrimination, marital infidelity,
the cutthroat business world, the glass ceiling, subterfuge.
MESSAGE - Keep searching for the truth and you will find it; things are not
always as they seem; women can be just as ruthless and amoral as men.
