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.

MPAA Rating: R

When Harrison Ford discovers that his wife died in a plane crash while traveling with her lover, he contacts the man's widowed wife (Kristin Scott Thomas) to learn more about the affair, and becomes romantically involved with her. Also with Charles Dutton, Bonnie Hunt, Dennis Haysbert, Sydney Pollack, Richard Jenkins, Paul Guilfoyle, Susanna Thompson, Peter Coyote, Dylan Baker, Lynne Thigpen, Kate Mara, Ariana Thomas and Bill Cobbs. [2:13]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Some sexual innuendo and kissing. A couple have sex with kissing; also, a man and woman undress each other (we see his bare chest and her panties and bare back) and then we see him lying on top of her in bed while kissing (they are obviously nude but no nudity is visible). A couple kisses passionately and grab at each other's clothed crotches.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man is shot twice; we see a bullet tearing through his leg (blood is visible on his leg and hand). We see the wreckage of a plane a couple of times, and body bags being taken out. A fistfight with kicking, punching (many times to the abdomen) and one person being hit with a chair; also, a woman hits a man's arm and bites his hand as they grapple in a car, a man hits another in the face, a man throws another against a car and a bowling ball is thrown into a man's stomach. A car rams the back of another car. A man threatens another with a gun. An open-eyed corpse with a bloody face and neck is seen twice; also, we see two corpses underwater and two corpses' faces on a monitor (one of the faces is bruised). A puddle of blood is shown in a dumpster.

PROFANITY 6 - Two F-words, some anatomical references, a few scatological references and many mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Adultery, politics, law enforcement, betrayal.

MESSAGE - The quest for the truth is always important.

Special Keywords: S5 - V5 - P6 - MPAAR

Our Ratings Explained

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.
