Town & Country



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: R

Two long-time married couples who are also best friends struggle with infidelities and secrets in this comedy. With Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, Garry Shandling, Andie MacDowell, Jenna Elfman, Nastassja Kinski, Josh Hartnett and Charlton Heston. [1:46]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Lots of sexual innuendo. We see a man's bare legs with his pants at his ankles and a woman's bare back and the side of her bare legs and buttocks as she thrusts on top of him briefly (they also kiss passionately and moan loudly); they scramble to put their pants back on when they realize someone is about to discover them. A couple kiss passionately and we see the woman's dress fall down, revealing her bare back, then we see her taking off her dress and then her bra; at that point we realize she is a man. A woman in a cleavage-revealing nightgown gets in bed with a man and starts kissing him passionately, then we see her bare back as she's on top of him; afterwards we see them lying in bed together. A clothed man briefly lies on top of a clothed woman on a bed and kisses her passionately (they are interrupted by someone). A woman lies on top of a man in a bear costume with her face near his crotch, and it's implied she wants to perform fellatio (she says she's looking for a hole in his costume). We see a nude-but-sheet-covered man and woman lying in bed, obviously post-coitus; in another post-coitus scene, a bare-chested man sits in bed and watches a nude woman play a cello (all of her bare back and most of her bare legs are visible). A man and woman lying in bed together move stuffed animals as if they were having intercourse, and they also make exaggerated moaning noises. A man hears loud moaning as he walks past his two grown children's bedrooms (both are with their respective partners). We see a bare-chested man, a man in tiny underwear, and several women in cleavage-revealing tops. We glimpse a woman's underwear when she's pulled up from the ground after being knocked down by dogs.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Played for laughs: a man falls off a roof (he has dirt on his face and shirt when he gets up), a man accidentally bumps another off a loft bed, a woman in a golf cart nearly runs over a man, a woman in a motorized wheel chair crashes into several things, a man hits another in the buttocks with a golf ball, two men briefly push each other, a man lightly punches another in the stomach, a man who enters a crowded room with a rifle is knocked to the floor by security guards, two dogs knock a woman to the ground, a man shoots a costume head (we see a large hole in the top of it), a woman mentions her boyfriend was eaten by cannibals, and an explosion is heard and it's implied a man has blown up a house (before we hear the noise, we see a man pouring gasoline on its front porch and then lighting a match).

PROFANITY 6 - 6 F-words, many anatomical references and crude slang terms, several mild obscenities, a religious profanity and an insult. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Infidelity, divorce, cross-dressing, homosexuality, dishonesty, betrayal, dysfunctional families, ethnic stereotypes.

MESSAGE - Infidelity may be easy, but it's not fulfilling.

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.
