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.

A young woman (Kate Bosworth) from a small West Virginia hamlet wins a date with a famous movie star (Josh Duhamel). She travels to Hollywood for the date but when she returns home it's evident that she has had a profound impact on the star, who follows her back to her small town. That's until, however, the part he's been waiting for comes through. At the same time, the manager of the grocery store (Topher Grace) where she works admits that he loves her. Also with Gary Cole and Ginnifer Goodwin. Directed by Robert Luketic. [1:35]

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

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.
