Parody of the "Lethal Weapon" series, "Basic
Instinct," "Silence of the Lambs" and other movies, with Emilio Estevez and
Samuel L. Jackson in the lead roles, and cameos by oodles of Hollywood stars.
SEX/NUDITY 4 - We do get to see Emilio Estevez's behind, though it is
covered in transparent plastic and looks fake. He also flashes his undies, and in one
scene he's in female underwear, complete with stockings and garter belt. There's no female
nudity, but there are lots of shots of Kathy Ireland's cleavage and legs, and a brief
scene with four scantily clad women. Stripping scenes are played strictly for laughs (a
man pulls a bra from under his shirt, and the woman pulls a sock out of her pants) and
nothing is shown. There's one kiss and a couple is shown in bed smoking, presumably after
having had sex. A man is shown sitting on a toilet. There are lots and lots of sexual
innuendos and double entendres with references to everything from homosexuality to amorous
animals. The overall atmosphere is crude rather than sensual or obscene.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - There's a lot of violence but it is mostly of the
cartoonish type: there are what seems like billions and billions of gunshots and
explosions. The results are mostly property damage, from a destroyed mini-mart, to a
demolished trailer home, to a blown up factory, to lots of wrecked cars. People do die
(comically, albeit spectacularly: flying through glass panes, etc.) and we do see corpses,
but there's no real gore. In one scene Estevez pulls his arm off (patently fake) and opens
a hatch in his stomach to expose a gerbil on an exercise wheel.
PROFANITY 4 - 22 profanities ranging from four letter words, including
scatological and anatomical references, to the initials "F.U." etched in a door
by bullet holes (the F-word is not uttered). There's also some name calling. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Drug dealing, cannibalism, money laundering, suicide.
Nevertheless, everything is handled with tongue firmly in cheek.
MESSAGE - Uh...Hollywood movies are easy to make fun of?
