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 objective and is the heart of the CAP Entertainment Media Analysis Model applied to this movie

On July 26, 2000 the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry released a joint statement regarding the dangers of violence in entertainment. I applaud these associations for fortifying 1 Cor. 15:33. An exceptionally important statement in the release that deserves your earnest attention is "There are some in the entertainment industry who maintain that 1) violent programming is harmless because no studies exist that prove a connection between violent entertainment and aggressive behavior in children, and 2) young people know that television, movies, and video games are simply fantasy. Unfortunately, they are wrong on both accounts." [Emphasis is mine] Another statement in the report is "Viewing violence may lead to real life violence." From our five-year study, I contend that other aberrant behaviors, attitudes, and expressions can be inserted in place of "violence" in that statement. Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist concurs. For example, "Viewing arrogance against fair authority may lead to your kids defying you in real life." Or "Viewing sex may lead to sex in real life." Likewise and especially with impudence, hate and foul language. I further contend that any positive behavior can be inserted in place of "violence" with the same chance or likelihood of being a behavior template for the observer; of being incorporated into the behavior mechanics and/or coping skills of the observer. In choosing your entertainment, please consider carefully the joint statement and our findings.

If Scriptural references appear, the full text appears at the end of the Summary / Commentary likely using a mix of KJV and NIV.


Whipped (R) (partial) -- whipped me right out of the theater after 13 minutes.

In anticipation of so many previous arguments that a review cannot be credible if only a portion of a movie is observed, I will repeat: the CAP ministry is not a movie review service. We conduct movie analyses for parents and grandparents to give them optional tools to help make an informed decision for themselves whether a movie is or is not fit for their kids, which includes teens, using the teachings and expectations of Jesus as our investigation standards -- His Word, NOT my opinions, forms the moral yardstick with which onscreen behavior is measured. The CAP Entertainment Media Analysis Model (the Findings/Scoring section) is mathematically objective and could not care less about any "message" or "plot." Sin is sin whether camouflaged by a "good message" or not. Also, the CAP analysis model works as well for a portion of a movie as it does for an entire movie. The portion analyzed indeed contained the programming identified and properly earned the scores shown -- there is no arguing it. If the first or any portion of a movie is unfit trash, who cares about the rest of it. What difference does it make if the unseen portion is or is not clean & pure when the seen portion is filthy? With this, I will tell you up front we will not respond to emailers who would argue this. Further, I will also repeat that the heart of the CAP model is the Findings/Scoring section: that this Summary/Commentary is precisely what it says it is.

I don't know how "whipped" fits into the picture and I don't care. In the 13 minutes I watched it, Whipped presented the full spectrum of foul and vulgar language in a barrage of 58 examples -- about 4.5 per minute. And in 13 minutes that equates to 272 times per hour if the rate and density remain the same. I saw nothing to indicate any hopes of a reduction in the rate or density. South Park: BLU having a CAP Influence Density (ID) of 10.65* used to have the most severe CAP ID of the more than 350 movies the CAP ministry has analyzed. But this 13-minute portion of Whipped whipped South Park: BLU at 12.46! (Most R-rated movies earn CAP IDs from 1.00 to 4.00.) I suspect 12.46 is a good mathematical bias for the CAP ID of this movie, meaning I very seriously doubt that figure would change much if any if the whole movie were analyzed. And I will not watch the entire movie, so there is no sense in asking.

And there were many examples of sexual vulgarity, both verbal and visual. Smoking and drinking did not help the scoring either. Stripping, positioning for oral sex with obvious nudity in bed, stories of sexual conquest, vulgar descriptions of immoral sex acts, and a lot more [1 John 2:15-17; Gal. 5:19-21]. I will leave the "rest of the story" to the Findings/Scoring section.


  • 1 Cor. 15:33 (KJV) Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. (NIV) Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character.
  • 1 John 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
  • Gal. 5:19-21 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.


    As always, it is best to refer to the Findings/Scoring section -- the heart of the CAP analysis model.
