Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


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.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG

In this romantic comedy widower David Duchovny falls in love with a waitress (Minnie Driver) who, unbeknownst to both, received his wife's heart during a transplant operation the year before. Also with Carroll O'Connor, Robert Loggia, Bonnie Hunt, David Alan Grier, Joely Richardson, Eddie Jones, James Belushi, Marianne Muellerleile and William Bronder. [1:53]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Some sexual innuendo and many kisses. We see a woman sitting in a bathtub with her knees pulled up to her chest (her bare arms, shoulders and shins are visible), a shirtless man, a man wearing boxers and a T-shirt (he briefly does a comical "bump-and-grind" movement) and several women in cleavage-revealing tops (in one scene, we see a lot of cleavage when a woman partially opens her robe while looking in a mirror at a scar on her chest).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We briefly see a woman lying on a stretcher being rushed into a hospital (we see blood on her face and on the stretcher); we later learn she dies. We see a very sickly woman (bluish face and lips) lying in a hospital bed. A woman slaps a man. During a few scenes we see a man with lots of blood on his shirt (he's not injured but was helping someone who was). We briefly see what is presumably a heart wrapped in some slightly bloody cloth.

PROFANITY 3 - A few anatomical references, some scatological references, many mild obscenities (in a couple of scenes a child repeats the word after an adult says it) and some insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Death of a loved one, heart transplants, falling in love, widowers, inhumane zoo habitats.

MESSAGE - Don't let fear stand in the way of loving someone. You can find true love twice in a lifetime.

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.
