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 3 - Sexual innuendo and one kiss. We see a few bare-breasted centerfolds on a wall.

During some stage plays, we see simulated gunshots, machine gun fire, explosions and hitting with guns; we also see simulated blood and corpses. A group of kids pelt a teenager with rocks. A car nearly hits some kids when its brakes fail.

PROFANITY 6 - About 9 F-words (and one obscene finger gesture), one racial epithet, some anatomical and scatological references and some mild obscenities. [profanity glossary]

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.
