Shakespeare in Love Shock Rating

Shock Rating

R

After watching Shakespeare in Love, you may be imitating the grubby little street urchin and saying, "I saw her boobies!" There's a lot of Gwyneth on display during the film's romantic sequences… maybe to prove that she is a woman playing a woman's role, and not a man in a dress like in Shakespeare's day?

Shakespeare's plays can be violent, in addition to romantic, with all the swordfighting, poisoning, and stabbing, but violence in the film is kept to a minimum. It's the boobies that get this film its R rating.
