The Wedding Planner



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.

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Jennifer Lopez stars as a wedding planner who falls for the groom of a ritzy wedding she is planning (Matthew McConaughey). Also with Justin Chambers, Bridgette Wilson, Judy Greer, Alex Roccoa and Kevin Pollack. [1:42]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A few instances of sexual innuendo, including references to male and female genitalia. Some mild kissing. A woman grabs her clothed breasts, trying to adjust them in her dress. A woman straddles a man as they are riding a horse (looks sexual). We see the genitals of a naked male statue several times; a man accidentally pulls the genitals from the statue and holds them in his hand (jokes ensue). We see the back of a woman's bare shoulders. Reference to a woman having a tattoo in an inappropriate place. A man tackles a woman and lies on top of her. Talk of a sex change.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A car runs into a dumpster, and the dumpster rolls down the street and almost hits a woman. A man tackles a woman. A woman passes out. We see a woman in a hospital bed but she is fine. People throw plates at a wall; a woman drops several plates. A man tackles another man and slams him to the ground. A woman is carried away on a wild-running horse. A drunk woman falls down.

PROFANITY 5 - One F-word, several anatomical references, a couple of scatological references, some mild obscenities and religious profanities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Marriage, falling in love, fidelity, weddings, fate.

MESSAGE - Don't settle for just any love.

Special Keywords: S4 - V3 - 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.
