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: R

Rodney Dangerfield plays an obnoxious talk show host.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Lots and lots of sexual innuendo (including references to bestiality, masturbation, rape, oral and anal sex, prostitution, etc.). Bare breasts are seen in two scenes. A pornographic tape shows a man moaning and we see thrusting movements (but he's seen from the chest up so we don't see anything else). Photos showing a woman's bare breast as she lies on top of a man and a man licking a woman's chest. A woman flashes her breasts at a man (but she has her bra on), the side of a man's bare buttocks. Fondling through clothing (a man's crotch), kissing. A man puts the genitals from a statue in his pocket and he appears to be sexually aroused. A woman is offended when he dances with her and she feels him; he bumps into the backside of a man bending over (this is seen a few times on video).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Mainly played for laughs: A slight bloody nose, a person with a bloody face (they had a cinder block fall on their face which we also see). Slaps, a wrestling match turns into a fight with punches, bodies thrown around and furniture knocked around. Falls, a man is pulled behind a car, objects thrown at people, threatening with a sword and a gun (the gun is fired as people try to get it). A horse in a house knocks over people and furniture and the rider is thrown through a window.

PROFANITY 6 - One F-word and a couple of derivatives, a few scatological references, many anatomical references, some mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Talk shows, campaigning and politics.

MESSAGE - Politics make strange bedfellows.

Special Keywords: S6 - V3 - P6 - MPAAR

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.
