SUMMARY / COMMENTARY:
*Random Hearts* (R) -- In comparison to movies rated R of 1995/96 which earned CAP final scores of 54 and below, *Random Hearts* was a 'lite' R with a CAP final score of 53. But it was R in every sense.
The story is based on adulterous fornication between a Congresswoman wannabe's husband and a Washington D.C. cop's wife. The slap-n-tickle pair make a commitment of eternal togetherness -- they die together in a plane crash on their clandestine way to their hanky-panky pad in Miami. The cop, being a sly sleuth, happened on some information that just did not set quite right with him and proceeded to sleuth his way to the truth and into an immoral sexual relationship with the Congresswoman wannabe. In a complex web of pieces and parts, each with the power to destroy the political career of the Congresswoman wannabe, the cop relentlessly and sometimes invasively pursues the truth about his wife and the husband of the Congresswoman wannabe. A well made, well choreographed, and well acted movie well saturated with ignominy.
While most of the individual items of sexual impropriety might seem soft, the length of the movie (129 minutes) masked the invasiveness of the sexual programming. However, there was sexual intercourse, though with only partial nudity. And an episode of reminiscing of youthful sexual prowess implied that youth excuses immoral sex. A bloody street murder, gunfire with visible penetration, and a beating provided for a helping of violence. At least six instances of drinking booze augmented the lure of behavior not permitted to those under 21. And 24 uses of the four letter word vocabulary plus one use of the most foul of foul words plus 19 uses of God's name in vain, 5 with the four letter expletive, topped off the R classification.
