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

"The Godfather" gets the "Airplane!" treatment from comedy director Jim Abrahams. With Lloyd Bridges, Jay Mohr and Christina Applegate.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Sexual innuendo, including references to masturbation, forced sex, pornography, oral sex and impotence. A girl's clothed breasts grow and her nipples become pronounced. Women wear cleavage revealing clothing, and skimpy costumes during a strip club scene, revealing bare buttocks. Sex noises are audible and a man and woman are seen having sex: the man is topless and she is in her bra. A man's erection is used as a bird perch.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man is thrown after a car explosion; a building also explodes. A boy is shot at, a man is shot and wounded, and several men are shot and killed. After some killings we see bloody bullet holes. A man's thumb is shot through a rifle and a boy picks it up. A woman punches a man, a boy's head is knocked into a door frame and a man's head is kicked off. Some people are zapped with a cattle prod, a man is sprayed with poison and dies and a man is stabbed with flower stems (blood trickles from his mouth). A dead man's face (it doesn't appear to be real) is stepped on and a tiger is shown eating a woman's leg (it doesn't appear to be real either). We see a man's burned face. Some threatening with knives and guns. Some scatological humor.

PROFANITY 5 - One F-word, a couple of scatological terms, many derogatory terms for women, several anatomical references, several mild obscenities and insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - The Mafia, crime, gambling, politics.

MESSAGE - You can make fun of pretty much everything.

Special Keywords: S4 - V4 - P5 - 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.
