Not quite as mild as the review suggests

There’s more swearing than you remember, as well as a fairly explicit sex scene about two thirds of the way through.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Gone in 60 Seconds is a check-your-brain-at-the-door, dig into some popcorn, sit back and enjoy summer explosion movie, brought to you by the same folks who did Con Air. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has this formula down cold: top acting talent (Oscar-winners Cage, Angelina Jolie, and Robert Duvall, along with rising star Ribisi and the sensationally talented Lindo), some snappy dialogue, a cool and clever hero, and lots and lots of chases, all done with such panache that even a "my dog ate it" plot twist doesn't derail things.

Memphis and the cop both long to capture one elusive prize. For Memphis, it is "Eleanor," the '67 Mustang he never managed to steal successfully. For the cop, it is Memphis himself, the one thief he never managed to catch.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
