Imagine this all-too-familiar situation: It's family movie night. Everyone has been giving rave reviews about the movie you have decided to watch, and the whole family is excited. The popcorn is popped, the lights are out and the speakers are turned up. The movie starts, everything is going along fine, then out of nowhere there's a sex scene that makes everyone in the room feel extremely and painfully awkward.
Luckily, there's a site that can help both parents and children alike avoid these awkward and cringeworthy movie moments, and it's called cringeMDb. Paying homage to the largest movie information site IMDb, cringeMDb collects ratings of movies from 1995-2015 and lets you know if the movie is safe to watch with your parents or your kids.
Sometimes ratings can be deceiving. A movie could be rated R for violence and have no sex scenes, whereas a PG-13 movie may have a steamy scene or two that could make a few cheeks red.
For Example, "Mad Max: Fury Road" is rated R, but there's no nudity and therefore little room for embarrassment. Whereas safer-rated selection "The Notebook" is rated PG-13, but there's a few scenes you wouldn't want to watch with your mother or father. It's hard to tell how sexy a movie will be based on ratings alone, and that's where cringeMDb looks to help.
The site couldn't be easier to use. All you need to do is enter the name of the movie you want to watch. Hit enter and you'll see, plain as day, if the movie is safe or not. See below for an example:
