The Long Kiss Goodnight



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.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - A deer is hit and a car crashes leaving the deer and human car passengers a bit bloody. A woman kills the deer by twisting its neck; and the car explodes. A woman has a bloody gash on her head. In a dream a woman slices open another's throat. A man is stabbed as he hangs, a couple of stabbings in necks, and a few other stabbings. Many people are shot at and there's blood (sometimes blood spurts from their wounds, machine gun fire is often used); many are killed. A drowned corpse, torture by repeatedly putting someone underwater, a stabbing in the eye with some blood, people are beaten up sometimes with blood (mainly on the face). A woman breaks a few men's necks. Threatening with guns and knives, some fighting scenes with punching, kicking, etc.. Grenades explode with resultant property damage. Chases, falls, a man is run over by a car. Reckless driving, a child is kidnapped, a man on fire.

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.
