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.



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: R

Two angels must make two mismatched people fall in love.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Kissing. Sexual innuendo. Cleavage revealing outfits.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Mainly played for laughs: A woman shoots apples off people's heads, and once shoots a person. A man is beaten up with punches. A couple of people are shot in the leg with a bit of blood. A man bites another's leg. A machine gun is fired at a man and riddles a car with bullets. A woman cuts her arm deeply with a razor and lets the blood run into a cup. A woman is envisioned with a bloody abdominal gunshot wound. A woman is punched and a man is hit on the head with a shovel. A scalpel cuts into a leg and blood spurts out. A bloody nose after a face punch. A fight with a man being punched in the abdomen, a woman thrown to a couch, and a man being head butted. A couple of people are shot in the head; the result is two small, bloody bullet holes and later very bloody heads. A woman flips over a truck, hits the hood and then falls onto the road. A vehicle plunges over a cliff and a woman is smashed onto a boulder. Reckless driving.

PROFANITY 6 - About nine F-words, some scatological references, a few anatomical references, and some mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Angels, kidnaping, losing your job, wealth.

MESSAGE - Love will find a way.

Special Keywords: S2 - V6 - P6 - MPAAR

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.
