NOTE: We make no scoring allowances for Hollywood's trumped-up "messages" to excuse, or its manufacturing of justification for aberrant behavior or imagery. This is NOT a movie review service. It is a movie analysis service to parents and grandparents to tell them the truth about movies using the Truth. If you do not want the plot, ending, or "secrets" of a movie spoiled for you, skip the Summary/Commentary. In any case, be sure to visit the Findings/Scoring section -- it is purely objectuve and is the heart of the CAP Entertainment Media Analysis Model applied to this movie.
SUMMARY / COMMENTARY:
Ready to Rumble (PG-13) -- shoulda been R.
With a CAP Final Score of 44, Rready to Rumble should definitely have been rated R if not for the saturation of foul language then for the full rear male nudity. The MPAA does NOT have the authority to say my kids OR yours may watch nudity at 13 years old. The MPAA does not have the authority to say my kids or yours may expose themselves to 73 examples of foul language in 102 minutes including the most foul of the foul words AND God's name in vain with and without the four letter expletive. And I say it is cruel of the MPAA to place such temptations before our kids [Luke 17:2]. I can hear the hate mailers now -- "Language like that happens every day at school." Maybe, but no child will hear it 73 times in 102 minutes except, of course, in the movies. That such language happens at school does not make it right or okay either in the movies or at school. Besides, why do you think such language happens at school?
Two sanitation workers siphon out porta-potties during the day and lecture neighborhood adolescents on the glories of professional wrestling by night. When their title-holding idol is defeated because his promoter gets tired of him, the two pumpers launch a campaign to restore the title to their idol.
Vulgar talk, dress, touch and mannerisms. Dozens of crotch hits/kicks. Suggestion of intercourse. A father portrayed as a stupid dolt cop. Dancing in underwear. Thanking God for sexual images. Sexual offers and sadomasochistic sex. Irresponsibility with firearms. And much more. Just about everything that violates Phil. 4:8 is there.
That is all I will tell you of this movie (as if there is any more that needs to be said). Besides, I have got to reduce the time needed to prepare these reports in order to improve the chances of at least keeping this ministry alive.
In an effort to improve the chances of the continuation of these reports, this Summary/Commentary section will be progressively minimized and may eventually have to be discontinued.
