Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG-13

An aspiring heavy-metal band (made up of Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi and Adam Sandler) take over a radio station in order to have their demo played.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A woman takes off her skirt and is seen in a tight thong bodysuit. Two of the female characters wear tight clothing exposing cleavage and behinds. There are a few passionate kisses and one quick sex scene where the couple is seen bouncing around and audibly moaning. A man is shown nude, but his privates are covered by is hands.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - There is no blood, and nearly all the violence is played for laughs. Three men hold people hostage using toy guns. There is some shoving, a few fist-fights, a lot of hollering, and many pratfalls. An earring is painfully pulled off of a man's nipple. A crowd riots and a gun is fired, but no one is harmed.

PROFANITY 3 - About 10 scatological terms, some mild profanities, and some sexual references. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Hostage taking.

MESSAGE - Sometimes you must take drastic measures to realize your dreams.

Special Keywords: S3 - V3 - P3 - MPAAPG-13

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
