The Tomorrow Man | 2019 | PG-13 | – 4.3.5

content-ratingsWhy is “The Tomorrow Man” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “brief strong language and some suggestive material.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes an implied sex scene, a few kissing scenes and a couple of cleavage revealing outfits; a large explosion creating a flash in the sky but no evident destruction, many arguments and yelling, a man collapsing from a stroke and surviving, discussions of death of a child and a spouse, scenes of hoarding and discussions of doomsday scenarios; and at least 3 F-words. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


A man (John Lithgow) that’s convinced the end of the world is near and preparing accordingly for the apocalypse and a woman (Blythe Danner) who collects and hoards things just in case she might need them one day, meet, like each other and have to try and find a way to be happy together. Also with Derek Cecil, Katie Aselton and Sophie Thatcher. Directed by Noble Jones. [Running Time: 1:34]

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.
