Several scantily clad women dressed in cabaret costumes are shown in a dressing room, a man enters and identifies himself as a costume designer and he has them disrobe to evaluate them for new costumes; we see the women lined up wearing only thong underwear (bare buttocks, backs, legs and shoulders are visible) and he looks them over. Women wearing men tailored suits dance on a stage, they pull their pants off and we see them in panties, garter belts and stockings that reveal their bare thighs. A police officer handcuffs two women and has them bend over the hood of their car; they both wear low-cut and short dresses that reveal bare legs and cleavage.

 Two men are shot at, they jump off the Eiffel Tower and sail through the air using a flag as a parachute, and they crash into a large fountain (no one is hurt).

 A man in a speeding car tries to kick a motorcyclist off a motorcycle, the cyclist grabs and holds onto the man's leg pulling him back and forth, the car tips on its side, the motorcyclist is pushed into the car and is punched repeatedly by two men inside, and he is then thrown out of the car and slams into a fire hydrant.

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.
