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 woman have sex behind a table. (Only their arms, shoulders and hands are shown as they smile).

-A man and a woman have sex; the camera remains on their faces for more than a few seconds.

-In a camera darkroom, two women kiss and caress each other's faces.

-A man asks two women to have sex with him at the same time. One refuses, the other asks him to seduce her first.

-A woman talks to a man's ex-wife about her sex life with her ex-husband.

-Women wear revealing outfits. (They're prostitutes.)

Violence & Gore

-A woman enters a house with a gun, she shoots 4 times, missing a man and a woman who are there but breaking lamps; the man struggles to get the gun, it goes off and shoots the woman in the hand (we see a large splotch of blood on the hand and later see a large bandage around it).

-A woman calls a man and asks for help because she tried to overdose. A man says, "My ex-wife put a knife into me," a woman replies, "Maybe you did something to deserve it" and the scene ends. A man states, "That painter had a fiery relationship with his wife and a messy divorce," and a woman adds, "He tried to kill her or she tried to kill him." A man and a woman fight on a city street, they both shout, and she screams. A woman says that a man is a wife-beater and violent. A married woman and a single man argue about having sex. A man and two women argue about living together. A woman and a man argue a few minutes over him dating her best friend instead of her.

-A man and two women fly in a small airplane during a thunderstorm that tosses the plane; no one looks scared.

-A woman becomes nauseous as she kisses a man, and she leaves the room (we hear that she has food poisoning).

Profanity

7 scatological references, 2 mild obscenities, 4 religious profanities, 10 religious exclamations, name-calling (idiot, crazy, paranoid, Mormon wife, violent, wife-beater), 4 ethnic comments (about Persians selling overpriced rugs, about the Chinese language being ugly, and about American tourists being substandard people).

A man states that his ex-wife tried to commit suicide with an overdose of drugs. Wine and champagne are shown on tables with several people drinking, many men and women carry champagne glasses and sip, in bar scenes many people drink wine or beer and a woman asks for vodka at the home of a friend (she does not receive any). A woman smokes several times, a man smokes a cigarette in three separate scenes, and cigarette smoke is apparent in a couple of bar scenes.

The entire movie is very intense and geared toward adults. The mood is predominantly one of indecision and whether the main character has made a major mistake having sex with a man two weeks before her wedding. This tryst forever changes the way she sees her fiance and eventually her husband. She decides to have an encounter with him again once married. The movie is not a comedy, it is moody and intense, not for kids.

The sexuality is very intense.

Despite the PG-13 rating, this film is very strong. It may be a challenge for those under 16 to understand the themes of the film.
