Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this legal thriller includes a lot of dialogue about legal and moral matters, which means it's not really for kids (and it probably won't interest most of them anyway). It begins with a brutal murder (the bloody-faced body is visible repeatedly); a character shoots himself (it's off-screen, but his bloody head and crumpled body are visible); and another is tackled by police (he struggles before being pressed to the floor). The film opens with very close, very dark shots of their a couple having sex; their affair inspires violent jealousy. Characters drink at parties and swear (language includes several uses of "f--k" and many other curses).

Sexual Content

Credits sequence shows a sex act in extreme, shadowed close-up (making it hard to decipher); a woman has an affair; talk of intercourse in a courtroom setting; man says his wife/kids left him because he had an affair; post-sex scene in bedroom (man and woman get dressed); repeated joke about a private investigator named "Dick" has innuendo; some crude language ("He's trying on the dress, he's sniffing the panties," "put your fingers up [the] skirt" of a dead woman, etc.).

Violence

Man shoots a woman in the face: Viewers see the shot, then the movie cuts to her falling and her bloody body on the floor (this image is repeated in flashbacks). The killer drags a bloody body across the floor, leaving a smear; man shoots himself off screen, but his bloody head is visible several times (in the present and in flashbacks); in a drawn-out scene, doctors "pull the plug" on a comatose patient; man is tackled by police, his face pressed into the floor.

Language

Frequent uses of "f--k," as well as other language, like "a--hole," "hell," "s--t," "ass," "goddamn," "screwed," and "bastards."

Social Behavior

Man tries to kill his wife and fool the legal system; young lawyer struggles with corruption but eventually makes the right choice.

Consumerism

Mac laptops, cars (BMW, Porsche), L.A.'s Hotel Miramar.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some drinking at parties.
