Sex & Nudity

There is some passionate kissing in two parts in the movie.

There is a brief night scene in which you see a woman walk out of the ocean; she is wearing a dress which clings to her and which shows the outlines of her undergarments.

The Stanley Tucci character cheats on his girlfriend with the Isabella Rosellini character; you do not see any nudity or sexual activity in the sequence; however, you see them after the act (supposedly), on the bed. Tucci is in his t-shirt and Rosellini is in a full slip. You see her bare legs just above the knee, her bare arms, and her shoulders. Later in the film the girlfriend catches the Tucci/Rosellini pair kissing, fully clothed.

Violence & Gore

After a heated argument, the brothers wrestle on the beach. They clearly are not trying to hurt each other.


A few g**d*mns, a couple sh*ts. The "F" word used frequently throughout (mostly by Ian Holms' character.)

Some people drink wine and get (somewhat) drunk. There is smoking throughout.
