Claire Danes, Omar Epps and Giovanni Ribisi are three
hooligans turned undercover police officers in this modern-day version of the late
60s/early 70s television show. Also with Dennis Farina, Josh Brolin, Steve Harris, Michael
Lerner, Toby Huss, Richard Jenkins, Jason Maves and Clarence Williams III. [1:35]
SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sexual innuendo and kissing, sometimes passionately. A man
and woman kiss passionately and dance suggestively; we briefly see the woman against a
wall with the man between her legs, thrusting and moaning (both are clothed). A nude woman
pushes a clothed man onto a bed and kisses him passionately (we see her from the side and
also see a shot of her bare breast); it's implied they have intercourse, and we later see
them sleeping in bed together (we see his bare chest and her bare shoulders). A shirtless
man lying in bed is later joined by a clothed woman; we briefly see them holding each
other before the scene ends. We see a man in his underwear, a woman in a T-shirt and
panties and a woman in a revealing body suit.
VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - In one scene, gunfire is exchanged and we see a few people
get shot (we don't see any blood, just the victims falling down); later we see a couple of
men on stretchers being wheeled into ambulances. A man is shot and we see him fall down;
blood splatters onto another man's face. We see a dead man with two bloodstains on his
shirt. Men kick in a door and shoot at a man. There are several fistfights between several
men: Men tackle and punch and headbutt each other in the face, kick each other in the
groin, one man hits another with the butt of a gun, and a man drops a garbage can on
another man. A woman punches and breaks a mirror (we see some blood on her hand) and a
woman jumps on a man's back and punches him several times; we later see him holding ice to
his swollen, slightly bloody lip. A woman punches and kicks a man and hits him with a
briefcase. A man punches a woman and a woman slaps a man. A car explodes. A man and woman
jump out of a moving car and it crashes into a building; they get some bloody scrapes and
cuts on their faces and arms. Reckless driving and several car crashes.
PROFANITY 8 - About 20 F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological
references (a couple are heard in the background music), many mild obscenities and a few
insults. A couple of obscene finger gestures. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Undercover police work, criminals, drug dealing, drinking and
alcoholism, murder, corrupt police, prostitution, betrayal.
MESSAGE - Police are just as susceptible to getting involved in criminal
activities as everyone else.
