Nobody’s Fool | 2018 | R | – 7.3.7

Why is “Nobody’s Fool” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “sexual content and language throughout, and for drug material.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes two sex scenes that involve some mostly male nudity, many sexual references, a couple of scenes of violence without evident injuries, threats of violence, and over 20 F-words. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


content-ratingsSearching for the perfect man leaves a successful ad executive (Tika Sumpter) frustrated. When her sister (Tiffany Haddish), often infuriating but streetwise and fresh out of prison moves in, she immediately suspects that an online relationship is definitely not what it seems. Also with Courtney Henggeler, Missi Pyle, Whoopi Goldberg, Omari Hardwick, Mehcad Brooks, Jon Rudnitsky and Amber Riley. Directed by Tyler Perry. [Running Time: 1:50]

Nobody’s Fool SEX/NUDITY 7

 – A man and a woman have sex in the back of a car: we see him thrusting on top of her, she sits up and pushes his head toward her crotch (the view is obscured by the car door), we see legs and arms moving and flailing and hear rhythmic moaning and screaming. A woman kisses a man and lays him back on a sofa where they continue to kiss and remove each other’s clothing (we see his bare chest, abdomen, hips and back and her cleavage and bare legs) as they each trust in several positions. A man and woman kiss as they enter a hotel room, he lifts her up and puts her on a bed where he thrusts and makes loud noises (both are still clothed), and then he gets up and goes to the bathroom where he drops his pants to wash himself (we see his bare buttocks and upper thighs).
 A woman in a car asks a man if he wants oral sex and tries to lean over to reach his lap but the seatbelt holds her back. A woman tries to seduce two men who decline her invitations. A woman sits on a man’s lap and he quickly gets up and moves complaining of “bad knees.” A man invites woman to have sex with him and describes the acts that he can perform on her; she backs away (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).

A man and a woman flirt in a coffee shop several times. A woman instructs a man how to fix his coffee machine and there are several allusions that sound sexual, accompanied by her reactions that suggest that she is aroused. A man and a woman kiss in the back seat of a car (she is straddling his lap) while a drive-in movie plays. A shirtless man (we see his bare chest, abdomen and back) climbs into bed with a woman and kisses her hand, and she says, “I’m not in the mood.”

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
