Narcissism Rears Its Ugly Head in Greenberg
- Friday, March 26, 2010
Language/Profanity: Several uses of the "f" word, plus a steady stream of other profanities, including misuses of God's name.
Sex/Nudity: Loneliness and sex go hand in hand in the movie. Before meeting Greenberg, Florence sleeps with a random guy who makes it clear that it's just sex, not a relationship (her breasts are revealed as she puts her bra on afterward). The first time Florence actually meets Greenberg, he almost immediately makes a pass at her and only minutes later, is performing oral sex on her (this scene is particularly graphic). Later on, another gritty sex scene between the new couple (there's more female upper-body nudity shown) definitely isn't prettified by Hollywood standards either.
Violence: An animal's head is floating in a swimming pool.
