SEX/NUDITY 6 - A man and a woman are shown in bed together, they roll around under the covers, they moan and scream, and they are shown holding each other later -- he is bare-chested and her bare shoulders are visible.
 We see a van rocking rhythmically and we hear a man and a woman inside the van moaning (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).
 Several women's bare breasts are shown during a locker room scene. After having been caught having sex with a man by his girlfriend, a woman runs out of a van topless, wearing only panties (there's a brief glimpse of bare breasts and bare buttocks). Women wear low-cut dresses that reveal cleavage, bare backs and shoulders, several women wear short tops that reveal bare abdomens and belly button piercings and bare legs, and a bare-chested man has tribal body painting. We briefly see pictures of scantily clad women with one sitting on top of a man.
 A man invites a woman into a hot tub, a man flirts with a woman, a man admires two women wearing tight-fitting tops that reveal cleavage, and two men admire a woman wearing short shorts.
 A man and a woman kiss, women kiss a man on the cheek, and women throw kisses to people at a sporting event.
 People talk about men liking to watch women wrestle. A boy asks a man if women are topless when they wrestle. People talk about women's professional mall wrestling.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two women fight, and one is slammed against a glass wall during a hockey game.
 A woman breaks a van door open and finds her boyfriend having sex with another woman, and she punches the man in the face.

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.
