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

A huge snake attacks and kills a group of filmmakers. With Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, Jon Voight and Eric Stoltz.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A couple make-out and the man pulls the woman's shirt down exposing the top of her breast, which he then caresses. Native people sport loincloths and the women's bare breasts are shown. Several times we can vaguely see women's nipples through nightshirts and tank tops. Kissing and sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Many scenes of the snake chasing people. The snake kills a panther and leaves the panther's eyeball lying on the ground. A tracheotomy is done on a man using a knife; there's some blood and later a man twists his finger in the tracheotomy hole (some blood gushes out). As the snake eats a victim we see the inside of the snake from the victim's perspective. The snake chews on a corpse's neck (some blood). A man puts a pick through the snake's head (some blood).The snake spits up a dead monkey and a slightly chewed-up man. The snake kills some people by breaking necks and crunching bones; there's some blood (neck, eyes, mouth). The snake drags a victim through the water and there is blood on his face. A monkey paw drips blood into a bucket. A couple of people are strangled. The outline of a man's face is seen through the snake's belly after he's been eaten. A snake bites a man's finger. Animals are shot and injured or killed, and one catches on fire. A man is stabbed in the leg with a knife. A few fistfights and a couple of slaps. A few corpses are seen. A couple of explosions.

PROFANITY 5 - One F-word, a profane hand gesture, a few anatomical references, some mild obscenities and a few scatological references. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Snakes, the jungle, nature, discovery.

MESSAGE - Nature can be deadly.

Special Keywords: S4 - V8 - P5 - 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.
