: Hello guys I'm an Italian student and I'm translating a film review from empire magazine. Could you help me with the meaning of "If he has any bones about..."? I can't really manage to know what it means. Thanx, VIVI

'Bones' in this context is an abbreviation of 'bone of contention,' meaning a source of continuing disagreement.

'I have a bone to pick with you' means 'I have reason to disagree or be annoyed with you.'
