Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Open Windows is a thriller that takes place almost entirely on a laptop -- through webcams, streaming videos, and video chats. It features the former porn star Sasha Grey, who's the object of a male character's obsession and is viewed as a sexual object. She exposes her breasts in one scene. Language is strong, with many uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as other words. Grey's character is kidnapped and tied up; other violence includes a man being bound and given electric shocks, shooting, a Taser gun, car chases, crashes, and explosions. A minor character can be seen snorting cocaine, and drugs are discussed. The story is set in the movie industry, where a new zombie film is being promoted. A clip from the fake "movie" is shown, with some violence.
- Sexual Content
- A woman is forced to open her robe, exposing her breasts. A camera zooms in on her cleavage. She goes to a hotel room for sex; kissing noises are heard. Reference to a sex tape/porn movie. Reference to masturbating on a webcam. Innuendo. Sexy photos.
- A woman is grabbed and taken hostage; she's slapped off screen and tied to a chair. A man is tied up, gagged, and given electric shocks. A man is shot and seemingly killed. Taser gun. Explosions. Car chase and crash. A clip from a zombie movie, with bowling balls to the head.
- "F--k" and "s--t" are used several times. Also "t-ts," "ass," "schlong," "damn," "son of a bitch," "bastard," "bitch," "bimbo."
- Social Behavior
- Vague warning about Internet safety and trusting everything you see. Food for thought: A man holds a woman hostage and threatens to blow her up unless Internet surfers log off the site; less than 10% do it -- the rest stay on to watch.
- The movie begins at a sci-fi convention panel where a new movie is being teased. No real-life products are mentioned.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A man is seen snorting cocaine from a distance. Drugs are mentioned.
