Repellent drama about an uptight Harvard med school grad (Christian Bale) who takes his straitlaced fiancee (Kate Beckinsale) home to Los Angeles, where his hip, hedonistic mom (Frances McDormand) initiates her into the epicurean joys of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Despite competent performances, writer-director Lisa Cholodenko's suggestion that self-indulgence and promiscuity are liberating is more than a bit off-putting. Sporadic sexual content, fleeting nudity, several instances of same-sex kissing, recurring recreational drug abuse, intermittent rough language and profanities. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
