Directed by Leslie Small & Tim Story. A couple of lines of dialogue are spoken in Russian with English subtitles. [1:36]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A stand-up comedy act includes: A man makes a joke about how a man would have sex if he was missing both knees, and he thrusts awkwardly. A man talks about a giant mural of Batman on his son's bedroom ceiling looking like the character was going to rape his son. A man says he sleeps naked. A man says that his robe flew up and exposed his genitals. A man jokes about having sex with a sex aid and imitates a woman performing a similar act. A man jokes about buying several sex aids from an adult store. A man talks about having had a bad sex week and that he was ejaculating prematurely. A man talks about having sex with his significant other and she performed oral sex on him.
 An introductory short film includes a man trying to seduce a woman at a bar and she lists the attractive qualities of the man she is with including a reference to the size of his genitals.
 A man wonders if a woman is "giving me the look" and tries to kiss her (she pushes him away). A dealer in a casino makes a statement and another man misunderstands and replies, "Nothing is going in my hole."
 Several women wear low-cut dresses that reveal some deep cleavage.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man and a woman fight with several armed men: the man shoots two men (we see a bullet wound open in a man's forehead), stabs one man below screen with a stick (we hear squishing sounds), and then stabs a man in the throat with a corkscrew and blood sprays all over him (the man is completely coated with blood). Two men with guns shoot at a man and a woman and the woman shoots them (we see them lying motionless on the floor with no evident blood). A man and a woman in a car are chased by gunmen in another car, who fire at them as they take off in a helicopter (they get away unharmed). A man stumbles onto a platform and nearly falls.
 An introductory short film includes a man holding and firing a gun, and a woman holding and firing a gun, and we follow a bullet as it shoots through a photo of a man on a playing card, an RPG strikes a car as it jumps over a broken bridge and the car explodes, throwing a man who was in the car into water, then float into a giant-sized woman's open mouth (all reminiscent of a James Bond movie introduction).
 A man at a Black Jack table argues with another man at the table and threatens to punch him in the face; he crawls across the table toward the man and is dragged out of the room by two other men as he yells. A man makes insulting remarks about another man's height and the second man acts like he wants to get into a fight but does not. A man says, "I'm gonna kill you" to another man.
 A stand-up comedy act includes: A man talks about a friend of his having been shot in the head and another in the back. A man talks about a raccoon holding its paw like a handgun and making a gesture like it was shooting toward the man who was inside his house. A man talks about closing a door on his son who was running toward the house in fear of something in the dark. A man makes a comment about an animal biting a woman's shoulder off and that he wouldn't be able to be with someone who has only one shoulder. A man makes a joke about a man being attacked by an orangutan and taking both his knees. A man jokes about what he would do if his significant other was attacked by a shark and lost one arm and one leg; he says he would leave her for the shark to finish. A man talks about a giant mural of Batman on his son's bedroom ceiling looking like the character was going to rape his son. A man tells his son, "I should have let Batman rape you." A man talks about doing shots of alcohol while playing ping pong, then falling unconscious on the floor until morning. A man talks about having a bowel movement in an airport bathroom and fearing that someone would take a picture of him sitting on the toilet.

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.
