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.

Shortly after returning from his honeymoon, a man runs into his best and oldest friend Dupree (Owen Wilson) who's been fired and sleeps on a cot in the back room of a bar after he's kicked out of his apartment. Unemployed -- and seemingly unemployable -- Dupree is invited to stay with the newlyweds (Kate Hudson and Matt Dillon), just for a few days. However, weeks pass and the unconventional household arrangement takes its toll on everybody's life. Also with Michael Douglas and Amanda Detmer. Directed by Joe & Anthony Russo. [1:49]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A woman opens the door of her house, and we see a woman's bare leg and a man leaning over her with butter in his hand; the first woman screams and runs from the house, and the man follows her with pillows covering his genitals and buttocks (his bare chest and hips are visible).
 A woman interrupts a man who's masturbating (we see his shoulder moving rhythmically and see his pants around his ankles) and he struggles to cover himself and turn off a pornographic movie that he is watching (we do not see any of the movie).
 A husband and wife kiss in bed, she climbs on top of him (we see part of her bare buttocks from beneath her panties), they continue to kiss, and they are interrupted when someone enters the room -- the woman falls on the floor, and the man covers his lap with a pillow suggesting that he is aroused.
 A woman wears a low-cut, sheer negligee that reveals cleavage and her panties are visible through the fabric, a woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage, bare shoulders and back, and a woman's top raises when she reaches up, revealing her bare back to the hip, and her husband suspects that another man is admiring her (he is not). The silhouette of a nude woman is seen through sheer drapes. A sleeping man is nude and we see his bare back and buttocks. An unconscious man (he had too much alcohol) lies on a beach in his jockey shorts, a man wearing jockey shorts and a T-shirt shaves his legs, and a man's robe hangs open revealing his bare chest and jockey shorts.
 We see a clinical rendering of male genitals. A man wears an apron that says "Naked Fiesta" on it and there are several men pictured on the front with peppers over their genitals.
 A man caresses a woman's toes and tells her they are sexy. A man and a woman in swimsuits swim, hug and kiss. A man kisses a woman he doesn't know. A man and a woman kiss and hug in several scenes.
 Two female strippers wearing leather outfits and carrying whips arrive at a house and ask for "a couple of bad boys." A man imagines his wife wearing a tiny swimsuit and kissing another man passionately. A woman looks through a box of pornographic movies (we see the covers of a couple that feature women in bikinis).
 A man tells a husband and wife that they should make love and "explore each other." A woman tells a man that another woman is sleeping with "half the male faculty" at her school. A husband and wife flirt on the telephone and talk about celebrating at home later. A woman talks about another woman being a Mormon and that she wouldn't "get busy" on the first date. A man talks to his son-in-law about having a vasectomy.
 A man hugs another man and kisses him on the head. Three men hug as a greeting.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man lunges at another man across a table, they fall to the floor with one holding the other around the throat and a third man hits one of them in the head with a heavy candlestick.
 A guard with a metal baton threatens a man, the man rolls a bike into the guard, he runs and the guard chases and shoots at him with a taser; they then throw office items at each other, the guard is struck in the face by a door, and kicks the door down and swings the metal baton around the room, while the man crashes through a ceiling and lands hard on a table.
 A man on a bike is struck by a car and is thrown to the ground (he appears uninjured). A man falls off a skateboard ramp and another man on a skateboard crashes into him, and they are both knocked to the ground and one holds his crotch. A boy is struck in the arm with a baseball, he and the pitcher fight and one is punched several times while lying on the ground.
 A house catches fire with people inside, the people get out safely, and we see the charred remains of the structure later.
 A man and a woman argue in several scenes and several men argue in a few scenes.
 A man climbs onto a bar to perform a "flaming tornado," we hear the sound of a large flame bursting and we hear the man yell and see him covering his face (there are no visible injuries).
 A woman screams and drops a glass pitcher when she is startled. A man in a movie puts his hand inside the mouth of a stone sculpture, he pretends that his hand is bitten off and a woman who's with him screams.

Our Ratings Explained

Tell Friends About Our Site

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.
