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.

A young woman (Julia Stiles) committed to getting her medical degree without allowing romantic entanglements to get in her way is blind-sided by a young man (Luke Mably) who happens to be the prince of Denmark. She doesn't find out that he's a prince until the paparazzi catch up with them and turn their relationship into a scandal. She must decide whether to follow her heart or her career goals. Also with Miranda Richardson, James Fox and Joanne Baron. Directed by Martha Coolidge. [1:51]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and a woman hold hands, she takes him to a secluded place where they kiss passionately, he takes off his shirt (we see him bare-chested), they kiss and are interrupted by photographers who take pictures of them. A man and a woman hug and kiss, she climbs on top of him and they kiss again. There are several scenes of men and women kissing, and we see newspaper photos of two women kissing a man. Two women talk about "hot guys" and "going to the stacks" (going to a deserted part of the library to have sex). A man admires a woman while she dances, and a man asks a woman out on a date. A woman helps a man slice deli meat on a slicer and touches his hand and arm tenderly. We hear that a man has a reputation for being promiscuous. A man talks about another man being a virgin. A man asks a woman to take off her top for him and she squirts him with water. A man is bare-chested in bed, then climbs out of bed and is wearing boxer shorts, and a woman in the room is uncomfortable with him not being dressed. Women lift their tops to show bare beasts (they are covered by a black band). Men and women dance together. A man says to two men "if this is a lovers' thing..." Women wear tight-fitting T-shirts, short tops and low-cut pants that reveal cleavage and bare abdomens. A woman's blouse is unbuttoned enough to show a bit of lace on her bra. Women wear evening gowns that reveal bare shoulders, backs and cleavage.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man punches a man in the face, he falls to the ground, and several other men pounce on the aggressor and wrestle him to the ground. During a lawnmower race, one mower is pushed off the track and it runs into hay bales, another crashes into bales and the driver is thrown off. Two cars race along narrow streets passing people standing on sidewalks, then along country roads, a truck pulls in front of them, and they swerve to miss it. A woman yells at a man, and a man snarls and yells at a man. A woman in a car nearly runs down a man and a woman, and a man drives his car fast. A man throws water in a man's face. Cows charge toward a man, he falls down, and they run around him. A man threatens to blind two men with a laser pointer. A woman causes an explosion in a chemistry lab (no one is injured). A man appears to be ill and we hear that he is dying. A man says, "the cows' udders will explode."

PROFANITY 3 - 2 sexual references, 3 scatological terms, 2 anatomical terms, 3 mild obscenities, 2 religious exclamations. [profanity glossary]

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

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.
