Out of more than 1400 film analyses we have done before Hurleyville, Episode 1: One God, only four had earned the topmost score of 100 out of 100. Now five out of more than 1400 have earned a perfect CAP score of 100. Hurleyville, Episode 1: One God is clean, safe, comfortable entertainment with a solid and noble message. There are many films that have earned the Dove Foundation "seal of family approval" as did this episode of Hurleyville. But the other Dove approved films we have analyzed did not earn a perfect CAP final score of 100 out of 100. This one did. An outstanding job of the makers of this delightful film. It was a joy to analyze this one. I'll explain why later.

An entire neighborhood celebrates the centipede ... er ... centennial of Hurleyville, Texas. A gaggle of delightful, missing-teeth typical kids help build a video production of Hurleyville, TX and its founding to present to the neighborhood at the centennial celebration party.

I am not going to build a Summary/Commentary of the plot or story as I typically do because there is no need to discuss the assaults on morality and decency ... because there aren't any! But I will mention that this episode is built on the first of the Ten Commandments: that there is but one God; that He is your God; that He loves you. [Exod. 20:2 - 3] The film teaches this Truth to the kids and inherently to the viewers.

I am, however, going to let you know I find this film exceptionally delightful. "Why?" you might ask? Since you've asked, I'll tell you :D My wife and I have cared for every one of the kids in this film ... figuratively. Over almost 20 years my wife and I have cared for two biological sons and 40 foster kids. From the 40 foster kids we adopted eight. So, if you are a parent you can easily understand why, aside from the fact that this film is free of any assaults on morality and decency, it is so close-to-home for me. Not once in the film does anyone appear to be in danger of the "millstone sin." [Luke 17:2]

Something tells me that Janice, Josh and Sarah will not lose their reward. [Matt. 10:42] May our Lord supply them with the resources they need to continue.

  • Jer. 37:9 This is what the LORD says: Do not deceive yourselves, thinking, 'The Babylonians [the destroyers from within] will surely leave us.' They will not!
  • Ps. 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men [when enough people continue to defend what is vile, embrace it, enjoy it, want it, submit to it.]
  • Col. 2:8 Beware lest any man [by his influence] spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
  • 1 Cor. 15:33 Be not deceived: evil [kakov: of a bad nature, not such as it ought to be] communications corrupt good manners.
  • Rom. 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
  • Jude 1:4 For there are certain men* crept in unawares [secretly slipped in among us], who were before of old ordained to this condemnation [whose condemnation was written about long ago], ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness [a license for immorality], and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [*men: anthropos {anth'-ro-pos}, generic, a human being, whether male or female]

    There are some in the entertainment industry who maintain that 1) violent programming is harmless because no studies exist that prove a connection between violent entertainment and aggressive behavior in children, and 2) young people know that television, movies, and video games are simply fantasy. Unfortunately, they are wrong on both accounts." And "Viewing violence may lead to real life violence." I applaud these associations for fortifying 1 Cor. 15:33. Read the rest of the story. From our years of study, I contend that other aberrant behaviors, attitudes, and expressions can be inserted in place of "violence" in that statement. Our Director - Child Psychology Support, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist concurs. For example, "Viewing arrogance against fair authority may lead to your kids defying you in real life." Or "Viewing sex may lead to sex in real life." Likewise and especially with impudence, hate and foul language. I further contend that any positive behavior can be inserted in place of "violence" with the same chance or likelihood of being a behavior template for the observer; of being incorporated into the behavior mechanics and/or coping skills of the observer. In choosing your entertainment, please consider carefully the "rest of the story" and our findings.

    * CAP Equivalence to MPAA Rating Scale:
    Please note our new manner of indicating a film's Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) rating in comparison with the CAP equivalence such as "PG-13 [R-13]." The first term is the Motion Picture Association of America's (MPAA) rating. The second term [in brackets] indicates that which the film earned under the CAP analysis model. In the example, "PG-13 [R-13]" indicates the MPAA rated the film PG-13 but the film earned a CAP final score in the scoring range earned by R-rated movies in the comparative baseline database. Other comparative terms used might be "PG [13-PG]", "G [PG-G] or even 'PG-13 [PG]" as was the case for Alien vs Predator. I doubt there will ever be a "G [R]" used, but only time will tell. The CAP analysis model is Rock-solid. The MPAA is not.

    The current CAP to MPAA** nomenclature is:

    For G rated Films with
    G equivalence: G
    PG equivalence: PG-G
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-G
    R equivalence: R-G<
    For PG rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-PG
    PG equivalence: PG
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-PG
    R equivalence: R-PG
    For PG-13 rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-13
    PG equivalence: PG(13)
    PG-13 equivalence: PG-13
    R equivalence: R-13
    For R rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-R
    PG equivalence: PG-R
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-R
    R equivalence: R
    For NR rated Films with
    G equivalence: G-NR
    PG equivalence: PG-NR
    PG-13 equivalence: 13-NR
    R equivalence: R-NR
