Does not belong on "Family Favorites" DVD

This movie appeared on a widely available DVD set of "Family Favorites" - not suitable for any family with kids unless maybe you are the Manson family! I thought it would be safe for my 8 year old since it was on this DVD. Boy, was I wrong. It started out with 4 or 5 curse words in the first few minutes of dialog. It only got worse. More unnecessary cursing, near nudity, and references to sex and sex acts followed. And that was only what I saw before I had to quickly fast forward past certain scenes when I anticipated trouble. Who put together this DVD of Family favorites?? Should have been rated PG13 not PG. It came out in 1991 so the PG13 rating was available then, I believe.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
