Rushmore

"Rushmore" is a quirky, indie gem of a movie, written and directed by nice-guy director Wes Anderson. The movie centers around a nerdy high-school playwright named Max Fischer who swears, lies, and manipulates others to fulfill his various ends, but at heart he's an honest kid who's been deeply affected by his mother's death and the way the world treats him. The film has its own handmade aesthetic, treating audiences to the full dosage of Wes Anderson's trademark style. Though the movie is undoubtedly an acquired comedic taste, it has a moving undertone and plenty of inappropriate sight gags to laugh at in its scant running time. (There are numerous instances of strong language-- f-words and the like. As well, some sex acts are mentioned briefly in dialogue, though not often enough to label the picture a "sex comedy." In short, this is a coming-of-age tale that rewards audiences and stimulates discussion moments after the slow-motion credits. Go see it.

Quirky, amusing, and entertaining. An all-around good comedy! I'd say that it barely earns its R-rating, there's a couple of f-words and some sexual references, but that's it.

Rushmore is rated R but mainly because of language and sexual references most kids who have seen it probably didn't like it or kids who have never seen it don't have any interest in it

Really Powerful Movie

This movie is a GREAT family movie! Some of the conversations, such as hand job is used quite a bit, will go over young kids heads. Max is a good role model because he works hard to found clubs that he likes. Positive messages include working hard and helping others. Language can be a little intense, f word used three or four times, sometimes its hard to make out. My suggested MPAA rating: Language including sexual references and brief nudity
