Milk Money was a typical PG-13 movie. Wanton Violence/Crime (W) lost a few points to material such as holding people at gunpoint and manhandling a woman. Impunity/Hate (I) suffered deeply due to unacceptable language (three/four letter word vocabulary).(1) Due to the saturation of the movie with sexual material, Sex/Homosexuality (S) lost all of its starting 100 points. Many sexual things were noted: things you would not want your son or daughter to do or say. And, of course, many of the "things" were presented in a warm and loving and "normal desire" theme -- a very effective way to make the "things" seem acceptable, even desired and encouraged! Some of the sexual material was clearly lewd and vulgar:
Only one instance of Drugs/Alcohol (D) was noted surrounding a death by drugs/drug trafficking. The use of God's name in vain, both with and without the three/four letter word vocabulary drained the Offense to God (O) score.(2) Milk Money was admirably free of examples of Murder/Suicide (M).
- gapping mouth kissing
- boys watching an X-rated video with the associated sounds
- talk of buying sex, prostitution, prostitute encouragement of the boys to "sample the wares"
- boys selling pornographic material to other boys
- a female urging boys to see her nude in a bathtub
- exposure of female crotches to young boys
- "a spot that drives women crazy"
- women willing to show their breasts to young boys
- gestures of holding large breasts
- plus other examples
In accordance with the comparative baseline data, Milk Money was equivalent to R-rated material in Impunity/Hate, Sex/Homosexuality, and Offense to God. The movie presented material equivalent to PG material in Wanton Violence/Crime. The movie was equivalent to G-rated material in Drugs/Alcohol and Murder/Suicide. Thus, Milk Money was equivalent to the comparative baseline data corresponding to 50% R-rated material, 17% was equivalent to PG material, and 33% was equivalent to G-rated material.
Below is the table showing the scoring in each of the Investigation Areas plus the Final Score drawn from the actual CAP Report. In addition, the number of examples per hour of unacceptable material in each of the Investigation Areas is provided.
(1) As noted in CAP Special Report-0001, "Investigation Area and Scoring Trend" Impunity/Hate was the strongest presence in all four movie classifications. I pray you will find time to read Special Report-0001. It has a strong revelation about the entertainment media.
(2) The use of the three/four letter word vocabulary is incorporated into the Impunity/Hate Investigation Area. The use of God's name in vain with and without the three/four letter word vocabulary is incorporated into the Offense to God Investigation Area.
