ASSIGNED NUMBERS

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
Profanity
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: PG-13

High-schoolers Melissa Joan Hart and Adrian Grenier pretend to be a love-struck couple in order to make the people they really want to date jealous. Also with Stephen Collins, Mark Metcalf, William Converse-Roberts, Faye Grant, Susan May Pratt, Kris Park, Ali Larter, Mark Webber, Gabriel Carpenter, Lourdes Benedicto, Keri Lynn Pratt, Natasha Pearce and Derrick Shore. [1:43]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Sexual innuendo (including references to homosexuality, masturbation and the size of the male anatomy) and some passionate kissing. A boy and girl kiss and moan in the backseat of a car; he raises his clothed crotch suggestively while trying to talk her into having intercourse. We see a girl holding her unbuttoned shirt together while standing with a boy (it's implied they've been fooling around). We see girls in bikinis in one scene, a girl in her bra in a couple of scenes and a girl wearing a cleavage-revealing top.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A boy pulls another out of a car, throws him to the ground, hits his head against the car, kicks him in the stomach and spits on him. A passenger in a car hits his head when the driver brakes suddenly. A girl sprays mace in a boy's face, blinding him. We see someone vomit and later see it again on videotape.

PROFANITY 6 - An F-word, many scatological and anatomical references and a few mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Popularity, dating, friendship, conformity, young adulthood, teen drinking and implied drug use.

MESSAGE - The most popular kids aren't necessarily the most interesting; people aren't always who and what they appear to be.

Special Keywords: S4 - V3 - P6 - MPAAPG-13

Our Ratings Explained

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.
