Synopsis

Talk about putting your best face forward! In this futuristic world, people create surrogate copies of themselves that have no flaws or imperfections. Now, they can interact with others without ever having to leave home. But a murder mystery threatens to change all that, especially for the FBI agents (Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell) called into the investigation.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Surrogates...

Although the surrogates in this film can engage in sexual activity, all that is portrayed is brief, passionate kissing, scantily dressed women and some bare backs and shoulders. A nude mannequin is seen. During encounters in the outside world, characters are shot, crushed between cars run over, beaten and electrocuted. Characters are involved in car chases and police takedown operations. Robots have their body parts torn off. A character jumps from a high platform and lands among a group of people. Corpses are seen with blood oozing from their faces. A man suffers injury and facial lacerations after being kicked and punched. A surrogate has it’s arm blown off, is shot at and eventually hung from a makeshift cross. Robots eyes are burned out by an electrical overload. A dead body is burned on a pier. Parents discuss the loss of their children. A character commits suicide by ingesting a pill. It is implied that a character uses an excessive amounts of prescription pills. Characters are involved in some social drinking. Surrogates induce drug-like effects by shocking or “jacking” themselves.
