Made of Honor Glamorizes Sex without Commitment
- Friday, May 02, 2008
Chances are the casual movie fan won’t care. But it’s still sad to see how marriage and committed relationships are so casually dismissed (and glamorized) in favor of flings that offer nothing more than short-term pleasure. One only hopes that people in real life won’t be as foolish as McDreamy and Co. are on the big screen.
- Drugs/Alcohol: Alcohol consumption factors in during a good chunk of the movie—at weddings, at dinner, during the college scenes and Hannah’s fiance’s family owns a famous Scottish whiskey distillery.
- Language/Profanity: There are plenty of your standard-issue swear words, including instances where the Lord’s name is taken in vain.
- Sex/Nudity: Sex, along with male genital size, masturbation and sex toys are discussed repeated times during the film. It’s also established from the get-go that Tom sleeps with his fair share of women, and he’s pictured in bed a few times kissing and caressing these scantily clad ladies. Hannah and Tom go lingerie shopping in one scene, and she’s pictured in a skimpy outfit, complete with garter belts and a whip. There are other scenes where women are shown in their bras and underwear, and one scene where Tom’s sporting a kilt so short that you can see his underwear. With the encouragement of Hannah's cousin, Tom invites a "Pleasure Aid" saleswoman to the bridal shower. She opens her case with various sexual paraphernalia and gives a glow-in-the-dark toy to Hannah’s grandmother, who wears it around her neck without knowing what it really is. In another scene, drunken Scottish men kiss each other for laughs.
- Violence/Gore: Only of the comedic variety.
