Reviews for August 2004


Anacondas: The Hunt For the Blood Orchid (PG-13) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Danny Deckchair (PG-13) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Hero (PG-13) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test! However, while getting his hair brushed by an attendant, he suddenly throws her on the floor, rips off her clothes and has sex with her. We only see her head and shoulders. She seems to be a willing participant, but the sudden and violent way in which this sex happens may be triggering for some.

Mean Creek (R) (2004)
* Fails the trigger test.

Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (PG) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Suspect Zero (R) (2004)
* Fails the trigger test.

Benji: Off the Leash (PG) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Exorcist: The Beginning (R) (2004)
* Fails the trigger test.

She Hate Me (R) (2004)
* Fails the trigger test.

Without a Paddle (PG-13) (2004)
* Fails the trigger test.

Alien vs. Predator (PG-13) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Code 46 (R) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test! However, there is mention of how in the future, the government mandates that certain fetuses must be aborted, which may disturb some. Also, there is a bondage sex scene in which the woman is tied up, but this is all fully consensual.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (G) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Yu-Gi-Oh! (PG) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Collateral (R) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Garden State (R)
* Passes the trigger test! However, sexual activity while both the male and female participants are high takes place, which some may find triggering. Also, a bellhop is paid to secretly watch others have sex. I am not sure if the people having sex are aware of being watched… so this may be upsetting to some.

Little Black Book (PG-13)
* Passes the trigger test! However, there is one scene in which a woman gets an unexpected gynecological exam, given to her by a female doctor. We see her pained expression during the exam. This scene is played for laughs.

Open Water (R) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (R) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test! However, there are plenty of negative and degrading attitudes towards sex in this movie, both heterosexual and homosexual. All these attitudes are incorporated for laughs.

The Manchurian Candidate (R) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test! However, some viewers may be bothered by a short scene in which a mother kisses her grown son in a motherly way. After the kiss, she pauses, as if she wanted to make the kiss more lover-like, but does not do so.

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster (R) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

Thunderbirds (PG) (2004)
* Passes the trigger test!

The Village (PG-13) (2004)
* Fails the trigger test.
