Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity


A man and a woman embrace in a passionate kiss: the woman takes off the man's jacket, lifts up his shirt to expose part of his bare stomach, they sit on a couch, she straddles his lap, they continue to kiss and the man caresses the woman's body, including her clothed breasts.

A woman, fully clothed, sleeps in a bed, where a man, also fully clothed, sits beside her; the man kisses the woman's hand to wake her up, she puts her hand on his face, they begin to kiss passionately, the man lies on top of the woman and it is implied that they have intercourse.

A man and a woman kiss in a parked car in an abandoned parking lot, and the woman climbs on top of the man straddling him (it is confirmed later that they engage in intercourse in the car).

A woman tells a man that she is pregnant from having intercourse with him previously and she jokes that it was not cheating since it was intercourse with him, although it was in the past.

A man stands nude in an alley: his bare buttocks and back are shown, and he turns and his bare chest and shoulders are shown. The man's bare buttocks are shown in dim light while he walks to get in bed with his wife.

A woman's bare back is exposed when she gets out of bed and as she puts on a man's shirt (cleavage and a glimpse of the side of her bare breast is also seen). As she stands up, the shirt rises and her bare buttocks is briefly visible from underneath it.

A woman is shown in a bathtub and her very pregnant stomach (although only a prosthetic) protrudes from the water.

Violence & Gore


Sounds of coughing and dry heaving are heard, then a completely nude man (no sensative areas shown)is shown lying on the floor, choking with a bleeding wound in his stomach; his hands are covered in blood and he is surrounded by a man, a woman, and a small child.

A man is struck, he gasps, and other men approach where they had fired the shot and see a small pool of blood.

A man is shown lying on the floor with blood covering his hands, blood is coming out of his mouth and he dies.

A man awakens, touches his face and finds it covered in blood, he lifts the blankets of the bed and finds a pool of blood on the sheets, and he turns to a woman in the bed and tells her that she has blood on her nightgown. She has had a miscarriage.

A woman sitting in a restaurant holds her stomach and winces, she then puts her hand under the table and when she pulls it up again, it is covered in blood. She has had a miscarriage.

A car being driven by a woman is shown crashing into a semi that is careening down the road, head-on, and bursting into flames (it is assumed the woman died on impact).

A man swings to punch another man after he presumably called him a derogatory term for homosexuals (it is not heard, but the other man comments that the man is a homophobe); he misses, the other man then punches him in the face and shoves him into a wall, and another man grabs the man who was doing the punching and drags him away.

A woman, engaged in active labor, is covered in sweat, and she turns to a man who is holding her hand and screams in pain, she moans and a crying baby is heard (the woman is wearing a hospital gown, and no blood is shown).



6 scatological terms, 6 anatomical term, 4 mild obscenities, 2 religious profanities, 7 religious exclamations.

Name-calling (idiot, weird, fat, saying that a woman has a moustache, out of your mind, crazy, old man.)


A man comments that he needs a Valiums.

A man takes a bottle wrapped in a brown paper bag out of his pocket at a diner and pours alcohol into his drink.

A man drinks wine rapidly.


Someone dies in a car accident at the very beginning of the movie. Although it is not excessively bloody, it can still be difficult to watch.

When Henry is dying, this can be very frightening and upsetting for children (and adults) This applies for both the scene where Henry's death is foreshadowed, and when it actually happens.

Henry's involuntary passage into different times and places is not only confusing to the story, but could also even qualify as disturbing to children.

Henry's relationship with Clare when she is younger could be deemed questionable.

There are many emotional moments throughout the movie.

TOTAL: 24/50
