sisters. He's also being chased by thugs, one of his sisters is trying to set him up with a blind date, and his hobby of collecting
pudding coupons pays off and he's able to win enough frequent flyer miles to take a trip to Hawaii. Also with Emily Watson, Luis Guzman,
Philip Seymour Hoffman and Mary Lynn Rajskub. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. [1:45]
SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man calls a phone sex line and we hear the woman on the other end talking about watching porn movies and
making frank references to masturbation. A man and a woman kiss while lying in bed clothed. A man and a woman kiss and hug several times,
and a man kisses a woman on the cheek. A man and a woman flirt in a few scenes. We see some photographs (magazine pages) of scantily clad
and topless women. A woman wears a low-cut dress that exposes cleavage, a woman wears a tank top that exposes cleavage and her bare
abdomen. A man admires a woman as she walks away from him. A woman talks to a man about fixing him up with a co-worker. We see photos in a
newspaper ad for phone sex lines and the women wear low-cut tops that expose cleavage.
VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man punches a man, knocks two more out with a tire iron, threatens yet another (when the punches land,
they thunder) and breaks the window of a car. A man tears up a rest room: he rips the doors off the stalls and tugs on a soap dispenser. A
man is grabbed off the street and thrown in the back of a pick-up truck, a man punches him and he falls on the ground, then runs in terror
while being chased by the men in the truck. A car is hit in the rear by another car, it spins around and we see a stream of blood dripping
from a woman's head. A man kicks three sliding glass doors and they shatter, a man punches a wall and cries and we see his bloody
knuckles. Two men yell abusively at each other over the telephone. A man watches as a car tips, then flips over several times and slides
along a street with sparks flying. A woman harasses a man for money, over the telephone. A man and a woman talk to each other, while in
an amorous position, about violent acts they'd like to do to each other. A man is startled when another man opens a garage door abruptly.
A man's sisters are very abusive toward him. A man walks into a door, a man trips and drops a cup of coffee on the floor (it breaks), and
a man falls off a chair. A forklift rams into a wall of boxes, then drops what it was carrying on the floor. People talk about a man
having thrown a hammer through a sliding glass door when he was younger.
