The Message is Clear

Kids-in-mind is a great site for reviewing movies for various types of objectionable content. They give a 1-10 rating in several categories, plus a description of the reasons for the ratings. They also include a paragraph or so description of the plot.

My favorite part is probably the message, which is the last item given for each movie. It's just a short sentence or so and easy to miss. Unfortunately, Sharknado was a Made for TV movie, so not included on the site, but Snakes on a Plane takes the top place for my favorite message. The other messages listed below are somewhat randomly chosen and in no particular order:

  • Snakes on a Plane: Snakes can really mess up a perfectly pleasant airplane trip.
  • Nacho Libre: Doing things for the right reasons is reward enough.
  • Gigli: Working past your fears holds the promise that good things will probably start to happen.
  • I Know What You Did Last Summer: You should take responsibility for your actions.
  • Mortal Kombat: You can't escape your destiny.
  • Monsters vs. Aliens: Be careful whom you call a monster; you may just need help from a "monster" someday.
  • Without a Paddle: Don't let anything stand in the way of doing what you want to do or you'll regret it.
  • White Chicks: Relationships take effort from both parties.
  • Face/Off: Keep your own identity.
  • Three to Tango: Don't cheat to get ahead, and be honest about who you are.
  • Napolean Dynamite: Being different is OK. We can find friendship and love in the most unlikely places.
  • Hannibal: A good brain is a terrible thing to waste. Cannibals are people too.
  • Deuce Bigalow: Even losers can find love if they will themselves to it.
  • Madagascar: Keep your life fresh by changing the routine. Don't be afraid of change.
  • Cabin Boy: Learn to respect others and they will in turn respect you.
  • The Green Mile: Sometimes love can kill us, but we can also save ourselves and others with love.
