Suzanne Stone (Nicole Kidman) has always dreamed of being on TV and she's dead-set on making that dream come true. But there is just one obstacle: Larry Maretto, her husband (Matt Dillon). So, Suzanne convinces a love-struck teenager (Joaquin Phoenix) to get Larry out of the way for good. TO DIE FOR is the most critically acclaimed comedy of the year.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Smart, funny, and thoroughly well-cast, To Die For takes a sharp - and sadly prescient - stab at dissecting America's obsession with celebrity.
It's highly recommended.

Common Sense Says
Brilliant, satirical and dark; not for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film is suitable only for older teenagers. The movie plays on a number of sexual and ethnic stereotypes and situations that require either parental guidance or an extraordinary sophistication in recognizing social and movie satire. There are a number of violent and sexually explicit scenes. An older woman seduces a teen with the intent of having him murder her husband. A man is killed while begging for his life. Teens verbally abuse each other. Drugs and alcohol are used without consequence. Parents should also know that although the film's treatment of sexual and violent situations is generally muted, a younger teenager is likely to miss the satiric thrust of the movie and remember the scenes of cruelty and psychological abuse.
