Good John Hughes travel film! Fine for olderish tweens
This is a good travel film that's fine for mature tweens 11-12! I give it 3 1/2 stars! It can be a little slow at parts, but certain scenes REALLY make up for it! There is a sexual situation, a scene where the F-Bomb is said 19 times in under 1 1/2 mins (18 by Steve Martin, 1 by another lady- all in the SAME scene), there is also some crude and sexual humor included. But what I'm REALLY surprised about is that no one on here really said anything about the nude pictures! In a cruddy taxi that the two characters ride in, has female nude pictures plastered on the ceiling of the taxi. It is about a 1-3 second moment. You can see female nudity, but nothing TOO graphic (boobs mostly, butts too -nothing else). So my MPAA rating is: R for strong language, a sexual situation, some drinking, thematic elements, brief nude images, smoking, and for some crude and sexual humor. It would be PG-13 if not for the bad language in that one scene. But I'd NEVER be PG! I have no clue how some of these people say it WOULD be PG! Because HECK NO IT WOULD'NT! And the PG-13 rating WAS around in 1987 (the year this movie came out) so it WOULD NOT be PG-13! The ratings were still messed up even AFTER the PG-13 rating was made. But still, this would NOT be PG or PG-13 if even made today. Like I said I'd be a PG-13 if not for the strong language. BUT NOT PG!! So a funny travel film, that also has some sad moments included. Fine for olderish tweens up. Hope this helps!
