I get most of my ideas for movies to watch from www.rottentomatoes.com . If the movie has better than a 60% rating, I generally find it worth watching. If it is less than 50%, it is generally awful. Between 50-60% is a toss up.
When I saw a movie staring Adam Carolla received a rating of 71%, I knew there had to be a typo. I mean, this was Adam Carolla; star of The Man Show and genuine pervert. However, I was compelled to check it out from the library. 71% was a very favorable review and the critics were very kind.
I had not laughed so hard while watching a movie in a long time. The dialog was extremely clever and there was an actual plot with deep characters and heartfelt emotion.
After the movie ended Cathi and I looked at each other and said, "That was actually quite good." Amazing... Adam Carolla... movie... quite good... who would have guessed?
When it was over, I looked on the back of the case and noticed it was rated R for "mild language". I remember a few swear words thrown out here and there, but nothing that you would not hear in a PG-13 movie.
I don't remember a single F bomb, but I am sure that there must have been one. There was no sex and the only violence was boxing scenes. There are some major problems with today's movie rating system.
