A child psychologist counsels a boy who can see and talk to
ghosts. With Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment, Toni Collette, Olivia Williams, Donnie
Wahlberg, Mischa Barton, Trevor Morgan, Jose L. Rodriguez and M. Night Shyamalan. [1:54]
SEX/NUDITY 3 - A couple of kisses; in one scene, a man and woman kiss on a
couch, then go upstairs to the bedroom and begin to undress (no nudity or even underwear
is shown). We see a nude woman through a shower door (her body is blurry but we know
she's naked), a man in his underwear for a long time, a boy in his underwear, a woman
wearing a bra and a woman in a cleavage-revealing top.
VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man shoots another man, puts the gun to his head and
kills himself (at that point no blood is shown, but the firing of the shot is surprising
and scary; later, we see the bullet hole in the man's stomach, a puddle of blood on
the back of the man's shirt and a larger puddle of blood on the couch he's
sitting on). Three ghosts are hanging from a ceiling with nooses around their necks. A
woman poisons a girl by putting something in her drink. A man punches a glass door. We see
the ghost of a woman with a badly burned face, one with blood on her face, one with black
eyes and cuts on her wrists, one with blood running down her face and the ghost of a boy
with a big patch of blood on the back of his head. We see numerous scars on a boy's
forearm and wrists, plus some cuts on his back. A boy gets locked in a closet, and a ghost
reaches from under the bed and grabs a boy's leg (both scenes are very frightening).
We see many ghosts who appear as they did just before they died; also, ghosts approach,
scare and talk to a boy many times (often these scenes are frightening). A ghost vomits
and a boy in his underwear urinates in a toilet.
PROFANITY 3 - A couple of anatomical and scatological references, a few mild
obscenities and some name-calling. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Ghosts, suicide, divorce, loss of a parent, schizophrenia,
death, relationships, paranoia, child abuse, life after death, talking to the dead.
MESSAGE - We must confront our demons, listen to them, and even help them if
