*The Bachelor* (PG-13) -- lots of language and sexual matters.

PG movies of 1995 and 1996 earned scores from 86 to 68. *The Bachelor* earned a CAP Final Score of 71. Very little violence/crime. No drugs/alcohol. And no murder/suicide. But it did have foul language and sexual matters equivalent to R-rated programming of 1995/96 if in numbers only. Thus evidence of another very useful feature of the CAP Entertainment Media Analysis Model.

Three of the most foul of the foul words, 20 uses of the three/four letter word vocabulary, plus 14 uses of God's name in vain, four of them with the four letter expletive. Get one of the Curse Free TV units and the CAP Final Score would raise from 71 to 88 and the CAP Influence Density would improve from 0.55 to 0.22.

Regarding the sexual programming, while there was no nudity noted, there was enough dialogue and imagery to further the general decay of inhibition and standards of acceptance. There was a lot of excessive breast and upper leg exposure that is not commonplace in the "real world" except in entertainment. And several references to male and female anatomy with clear intent peppered the script.

We continue to get evidence that our visitors seem to be relying only on this Summary/Commentary for a full accounting of the subject movie. This is not possible. For the best representation of the CAP Entertainment Media Analysis Model applied to this movie, visit the Findings/Scoring section from Full Report below.

  • (1) As noted in CAP Special Report-001, "Investigation Area and Scoring Trend," of the six CAP Investigation Areas, Impudence/Hate was the strongest presence in all four movie classifications. It has a strong revelation about the entertainment media.

    (2) The use of the three/four letter word vocabulary without God's name in vain is incorporated into the Impudence/Hate Investigation Area. The use of God's name with or without the four letter expletive is incorporated into the Offense to God Investigation Area. There is no duplication.

    (3) Only portrayal of successful murder or suicide are incorporated into Murder/Suicide. Portrayal of attempts to commit murder or suicide and deaths by police action or war are incorporated into Wanton Violence/Crime.
