Ice Harvest, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Rancid black comedy taking place all in one night about a crooked Kansas lawyer (John Cusack) and his sleazy accomplice (Billy Bob Thornton) who embezzle $2 million from a local mob boss (Randy Quaid), but whose plans to skip town are stymied by a Christmas Eve ice storm and a series of double-crosses. Despite some pungent performances, director Harold Ramis' adaptation of Scott Phillip's mordant novel is a misanthropic mix of barbed cynicism and sordid nastiness. Recurring bloody violence, several scenes in a strip club involving partial nudity, brief pornographic images, drunken recklessness, pervasive nihilism, vulgar and irreverent humor, excessive rough and crude language, as well as some profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
