Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG-13

An insurance agent (Catherine Zeta-Jones) poses as a master thief so she can catch the elusive professional (Sean Connery) she's been following for years. Also with Ving Rhames, Will Patton, Maury Chaykin, Kevin McNally and Terry O'Neill. [1:52]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A couple of kisses. We see a nude woman's back and cleavage (she covers the rest of her body with a sheet), a woman in a cleavage-revealing dress and a man in a loincloth. A man runs his hand along the side of a nude woman's torso as he pulls a sheet up to her shoulders (her bare back and part of her hip are visible). We see a nude woman's breasts in a Rembrandt painting.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man breaks through a car window and tries to grab one of its passengers, pierces the car's roof with a knife and shoots at the car (a window is shattered). A man is hit over the head with a vase, a man is punched and a man is maced. A man repeatedly holds someone under water, scaring but not harming the person. A woman hits a man repeatedly with a briefcase and they briefly scuffle on the floor. Some threatening with guns and knives. A few tiny explosions break through concrete. A man and woman nearly fall off the side of a building. Reckless driving; a man holding onto a moving car is thrown off. A man has a slightly blackened eye and acts as if his ribs are injured.

PROFANITY 5 - Two F-words, several scatological references, many mild obscenities and some insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Theft, deception, brief marijuana use.

MESSAGE - Thievery is an exhilarating but dangerous addiction.

Special Keywords: S3 - V4 - P5 - MPAAPG-13

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.
