The members of an otherwise successful New York family realize that they are all living separate lives
without any meaningful familial relationship. The aging patriarch (Kirk Douglas) is having difficulty coming to terms with his mortality,
his son (Michael Douglas) seems to have spent a lifetime repeating his father's mistakes, and his own eldest son (Cameron Douglas) is a
rebellious college student dealing with issues of love and sex. Also with Rory Culkin, and Bernadette Peters. Directed by Fred Schepisi. [1:49]
SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and a woman kiss passionately, he lifts her onto a dish cart, drops his pants (we see his boxers) and
hikes her skirt (we see her bare thighs); they are continuing to kiss until they are interrupted. A young man and a young woman kiss
passionately and begin to undress (we see him bare-chested, we see part of his bare buttocks and see her bare buttocks) before they stop.
A woman grabs a man's buttock, eyes him suggestively, kisses his back and neck and tries to seduce him. A young man and a young woman wake
up in bed together (we see his bare chest). A man kisses a woman, a young man and a young woman kiss, and a girl kisses a boy. A group of
young boys look at a pornographic magazine and talk about sexual positions and oral sex. A boy asks his mother if she and his father
perform oral sex on each other. An elderly woman dances with her husband and puts his hands on her buttocks. A man and a woman lie in bed
together. A young woman is shown in panties and a short tank top (we see bare back, abdomen, legs, and the outline of her nipples). A
young woman wears short tops and low-cut pants that reveal her lower back and bare abdomen. A woman wears tight-fitting outfits that
reveal cleavage. Two young boys make breasts out of clay. A young man flaps his tongue suggestively at a young woman.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man dumps a dead body wrapped in a tarp onto a small boat; the body is then doused with gasoline, pushed
out into the water and set ablaze. An elderly woman dies in her bed (we see her lying still and her skin is tinged gray). A group of older
boys chase a boy and a girl, they catch them, a boy spits on the girl's face, a boy kicks and punches one boy and breaks another boy's
skateboard with a punch. An elderly man is knocked down while jogging. A boy is hit with an egg (it splatters on him) and held with a
knife to his neck by an older boy. A young boy is taught self-defense techniques by his grandfather. A man and a woman yell at each other.
Two young boys throw a wad of clay at a boy. We see an elderly woman during a dialysis treatment, and a man gives himself an insulin
injection. A young man vomits into a garbage can (we see goo and hear him gagging), and a man flatulates at the dinner table and everyone
reacts with disgust.
