A new study showing that the number of dirty words in movies has decreased about 50% in the last 25 years since MOVIEGUIDE® began publishing shows that MOVIEGUIDE®’s strategy of influencing Hollywood executives is working.
The study of foul language in G, PG and PG-13 movies by three Brigham Young University professors shows that the 1980s movies analyzed averaged 35 obscenities or profanities per movie, decreasing to 25 per movie in the 1990s, down to 16 per movie in the current decade!!!
The researchers only looked at movies featuring teenage characters or that had plots revolving around teenagers.
Their database included such movies as the SPIDER-MAN and HARRY POTTER flicks, BACK TO THE FUTURE, KARATE KID, CASPER, CLUELESS, HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS, WEIRD SCIENCE, and REMEMBER THE TITANS.
Clearly, supporting MOVIEGUIDE® is your best bet if you want to clean up the culture and make the world a better place for future generations, our children and grandchildren!
