Sex & Nudity

  • Man is in bed towards the beginning of the movie (7+ mins. in). He and we watches a women undress. She removes her blouse, then skirt to reveal a black lace one piece with lace panties. She sits beside the bed and removes her stockings We only see her bare back. She then crawls under the sheets to him and they kiss. It is implied that they have relations.
  • There is a great deal of innuendo in the dialogue as a woman tries to seduce leading man while discussing garden architecture. A bit more obvious than Shakespeare.
  • A woman is set to have relations with a man as a trick. The man is undressed to longjohns and the woman gets ready to undress. The effect is humorous but adult. The same pair are put in a similar awkward circumstance later in the movie with no undressing. Man tries to kiss woman.
