Case in point: <i>Double Jeopardy</i>, a recent thriller starring Ashley Judd. At the beginning of the movie, we get a softcore scene of Judd making love to her husband. Why? To establish that they were married? Uhhh, probably not. I'm fine with sex, violence, and profanity, when they're necessary for the story. It'd be hard to make a thriller like, say, <i>Klute</i>, in which one of the main characters is a high-class prostitute, without having that character be frank about sex. However, that's a lot different than (pardon my choice of words) sticking in a sex scene just because you think that you can't get the 17 year-olds to watch a movie without seeing Ashley Judd's bare bodkin.
