Reviews for July 2005


Must Love Dogs (2005) (Diane Lane, John Cusack) (PG-13)
*Passes the trigger test!

Sky High (2005) (Michael Angarano, Kurt Russell) (PG)
*Passes the trigger test!

Stealth (2005) (Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel) (PG-13)
*Passes the trigger test!

Bad News Bears (PG-13) (2005) (Billy Bob Thornton, Greg Kinnear)
*Fails the trigger test.

The Devil’s Rejects (2005) (Sid Haig, Bill Moseley) (R)
*Fails the trigger test.

Hustle & Flow (2005) (Terrence Howard, Anthony Anderson) (R)
*Passes the trigger test! However, viewers should be aware that the entire movie is about a pimp, so we see lots of potentially upsetting material regarding his attitude towards women, the customers’ attitudes towrds women, how the prostitutes are treated, and so one. No sexual assault occurs and it is not talked about.
(Isn’t it weird tht a movie about pimps and hookers doesn’t mention sexual assault, but a kid’s or teen’s movie like Bad News Bears does? Hmmm….)

The Island (2005) (Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson) (PG-13)
*Passes the trigger test!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) (Johnny Depp, Freddie Highmore) (PG)
*Passes the trigger test!

*Passes the trigger test!

Rebound (PG) (2005) (Martin Lawrence, Wendy Raquel Robinson)
*Passes the trigger test!

War of the Worlds (PG-13) (2005) (Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning)
*Although no actual act is seen or directly discussed, there is a scene which so strongly leaves the viewer with the impression of potential child molestation that I believe it qualifies as failing the trigger test.
*Fails the trigger test.
