Three to Tango



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

Matthew Perry wants to land a lucrative job so he pretends he's gay and agrees to befriend his potential employer's mistress (Neve Campbell) to ensure she's not seeing another man. Also with Dylan McDermott, Oliver Platt, Cylk Cozart, John C. McGinley and Bob Balaban. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo, including many references to and jokes about genitalia, homosexuality, lesbianism, oral sex, S&M and multiple-partner sex. A man and woman kiss on a couch and a man kisses another. A man tackles another, lies on top of him and comes on to him, but they don't do anything sexual (the scene is both intimate and comical). We see two clothed men in bed together. We see a man in his underwear, a woman beginning to take off her pants as she's ready to shower (her underwear is visible) and a woman's bare shoulders while she's taking a bubble bath. The camera pans a woman's legs while she's lying in bed and we see many shots of cleavage. We see a naked Buddha statue and numerous posters of the backsides of painted nudes (part of the buttocks is always covered with a painted flag).

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A car explodes but no one is hurt. A woman accidentally hits a man in the gut, elbows him in the face, and hits him in his genitals. A woman punches a man and knocks him down. A man vomits and then a woman vomits right beside him.

PROFANITY 5 - 1 F-word, many anatomical references and mild obscenities and a few scatological references and insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Love, sex, relationships, fidelity, extramarital affairs, friendship, sexual orientation, honesty.

MESSAGE - Don't cheat to get ahead, and be honest about who you are.

Special Keywords: S5 - V2 - 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.
