True Romance (1993)
True Romance is pretty violent and has a decent amount of bloodletting. Its also chock full of bad language so the moms might not really dig this one so much. It's definitely a movie that is more for dad and Patricia Arquette isn't so bad on the eyes either as she walks around in bra's and tight leopard print spandex pants.
Gary Oldman (Sid And Nancy), boring Brad Pitt, Val Kilmer, Chris Penn and fucking cousin Balki from Perfect Strangers show up all in memorable roles. Gary Oldman plays a white pimp who thinks he's black and goes on long rants about The Mack. Oldman blows a dude away with a shotgun because he doesn't "eat pussy" and throws a serious ass beating on Clarence "He must have thought it was white boy day". Pretty boy Brad Pitt plays a loser pot-head who doesn't really offer anything to the movie except maybe for other fellow pot-heads who might get a cheap chuckle out of his stupidity. Chris Penn plays a bad-ass cop who gets caught up in some serious gun-violence and Balki vomits on himself and gets covered in cocaine while getting road-head.
We also have bullet wounds to the eye, a mobster gets his face set on fire and gets hit over the achy-breaky skull with a toilet bowl cover before having his chest blown apart from multiple shotgun blasts. We get some Sonny Chiba kung fu, dead cops, lots of blood, a great soundtrack and the whole time you can cuddle up next to your best girl. After all this is a love story. Its called True Romance... How sweet!
