Erotic thriller may satisfy very mature teens and adults

Basic Instinct is an erotic thriller that is okay, not bad per say, but certainly not great or a must see. Parents beware that this movie contains prolonged graphic near soft core porn sex scenes. Female nudity abounds throughout the movie, both sexual and non sexual. Male backside nudity is also present. The violence isn't terrible, and not nearly as graphic as the sexual content, but gore is still present in some scenes. The profanity is strong also, especially in very tense scenes. There is also lesbian/bisexual characters, which I think is good, it's always good to show diversity, although some of the presentation of these characters can be a little stereotypical. If there is a TV edited version on, then I would suggest parents watching it with their teens that are 14 or 15 years of age, that is if they're into thrillers. But otherwise, I'd suggest waiting till the kids that are under 17 are in bed.

Don't even fucking bother letting your kids watch this. There is a lot of sex and violence in it. I never saw it myself, but my mom has and trust me, she's seen a lot worse things.
