Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Note: The number at the beginning of each section refers to how much explicit content of that kind there is in the film on a scale of 1-10. The fraction at the end of the last section is the total sum of the sections over the highest sum possible (50) and is therefore an approximation of about how explicit the film is a whole.

Sex & Nudity: 9/10

A woman shows her left breast and nipple from the side.

There are several aggressive sex scenes between the main character.

A quick glimpse of a woman pubic area when a man goes down on her.

A man shows his bare butt while lying on his stomach.

Violence & Gore: 6/10

It is implied that a woman kills her husband, but her husband is not dead.

Two lovers kill her husband to escape.

In the final scene we see the two protagonists talk quietly in the car, when the car stops suddenly and his pregnant wife falls off the door and she dies . THIS SCENE IS VERY INTENSE!

Profanity: 3/10

Several Goddamn's, Christs sake.

Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking: 2/10

Some smoke.

Frightening/Intense Scenes: 7/10

"The Postman Always Rings Twice" is very intense and sad.

An idea of how accurate the TECE (below) is: 5-10 is little-kid suitable, G-rated type (i.e. Care Bears, Sleeping Beauty); 10-15 is going to be a little harsher, but not by much (i.e. The Incredibles); 15-20 could be pretty high up there (i.e. Indiana Jones), 20-25 can be less kid-suitable (i.e. The Dark Knight); 25-30 is going to be a film most likely not suitable for children (i.e. Psycho); 30-40 is going to be a film meant for adults and not for children (i.e. Saving Private Ryan), and films that go over 40 (i.e. Ichi The Killer) are high in explicit content and only for mature audiences.

Explicit content rating: 27/50 ----- Not for those under 15 years old
