Tom Stansfield (Ashton Kutcher) works for a brutally domineering publisher, Jack Taylor (Terence Stamp). Vying for an opening in another section of the company, Stansfield tries his best to butter up Taylor and, in the processes, is maneuvered into looking as though he gets two people fired. Along the way, Stansfield is after Taylor's daughter, Lisa (Tara Reid).

For Lisa to be able to go to a party, she must find someone to house sit for her father's house. Lisa runs into Stansfield and tells him of her dilemma. The way she puts it, it sounds to him as though she is wanting him to go to a party with her. Even after hearing the whole story, Stansfield agrees to house sit for her. What Stansfield is not told is that the house sitting includes baby sitting an owl which must be fed mice and medicated twice, once orally and once rectally, and includes death if anything happens to the house while Lisa's father is gone. But Stansfield is so infatuated with Lisa, he will go through anything to get on her good side. Shenanigan after shenanigan lead the viewer to feel Stansfield's frustration with the rude and crude dudes and dudettes that invade the quiet impeccable home. And Carmen Electra (as Tina) is thrown in for eye candy.

My Boss's Daughter is another R-13. That is beginning to sound like a broken record if any of our readers are old enough to remember the old record player and how is repeats if a track is scratched. But I don't write the movies and the same model with the same investigation standards and the same equations is used on every movie analyzed by the CAP Ministry. If our model is as unchanging as his Word (because it is built ON His Word), from where does the changing come that increases the percentage of R-13 movies? The as yet unqualified trend appears to be true to the previous seven years -- degrading yet even further each year. I'll let you know at the end of the year when the data are complied.

The only nudity in this film was rear male nudity, repeatedly and Carmen Electra in a wet t-shirt, but the density of vulgar and crude innuendo, suggestions and mannerisms is thick, from heterosexual to homosexual. [Eph. 5:4, 2 Sam. 6:20] Someday, I will compile the data to reveal the percentage of films presenting homosexuality and find out if the percentage is higher than the two to thee percent of the population who claim to be practitioners of homosexuality. [1 Cor. 6:9-10.] I think we can already guess fairly accurately that there is a l-o-t more presentation of homosexuality in and as entertainment than is proportionate with the actual percentage of practitioners, thus immensely exaggerating realty and tainting perceptions. But we'll let the numbers prove it. There are many other good uses for the CAP analysis model and the data we are amassing. But we need your help. Your financial help. And lots of it. Please consider making generous, tax-deductible donations to the CAP Ministry by any of the three methods at the top of this report page.

There are many uses of the three/four letter word vocabulary [Col. 3:8] plus God's name in vain repeatedly [Deut. 5:11], even the most foul of the foul words is presented though only once. There is fondling of women's breasts (one of which expresses that she likes it), inappropriate touch repeatedly and imagery of oral homosexual sex [Gal. 5:19]. As an incredibly debauch part of the show, Stansfield holds a gun at a bad guy in his boss's house who dares Stansfield to shoot then opens his zipper to spray the room. And then, when hearing of this behavior, another male does the same.

And all is acceptable for your 13 year old children no matter what you say. According to the MPAA and their all-knowing survey population anyway.

I am not going to add any more to describe the vulgarity of this film. I'm sure you get the point. And no amount of trumped up context or "justification" for debauchery excuses sin. The thinking that as long as one learns right from wrong the wrong is okay is ... wrong. The path does not justify the destination if the path is filled with sin no matter how noble the destination. The end does not justify the means. Sin can be forgiven if one asks, but sin is never excused. Even Jesus did not excuse the sin of, for example, the prostitute who was caught in the act and judged to be stoned to death according to Mosaic law. He did not argue with the law nor did He argue with the judgment. He argued with our right to execute her. And he forgave her of the sin, He did not excuse it. Prostitution as well as any other sin is just as sinful after forgiveness as it was before forgiveness. Jesus even reminded the prostitute of this by telling her to go and sin no more. [John 8:3 - 11]

  • Eph. 5:4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.
  • 2 Sam. 6:20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, "How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!" [I include 2 Sam 6:20 just to let you know God knows about "vulgar." "Vain" with "shamelessly" specifies vulgar.]
  • 1Cor. 6:9-10 Do you not know that the [unforgiven] wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
  • Col. 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
  • Deut. 5:11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. [Vain is shav' {shawv}: emptiness, nothingness, vanity, such as an expletive. With or without the four letter expletive, the use of God's name in any way other than respect, reverence or thoughtful discussion is in vain. That includes the popular three syllable sentence with His name trailing it AND the misuse of Jesus' name.]
  • Gal. 5:19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;
  • John 8:3 - 11 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

    ***Selected Scriptures of Armour against the influence of the entertainment industry***
  • Ps. 12:8 The wicked freely strut about [e.g., create progressively vile/offensive entertainment with impunity and no consequences to younger and younger audiences every year] when what is vile is honored among men [when enough people continue to defend it, embrace it, pay for it, enjoy it, want it]. [I call attention to Ps. 12:8 to warn of the creeping desensitizing power of "entertainment."]
  • 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 (KJV) Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. (NIV) Do not be misled: Bad company corrupts good character.
  • Jude 4 For certain men* whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change [warp, distort, falsely represent, situationally redefine, counterfeit, conditionally apply] the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. [*men: anthropos {anth'-ro-pos}, generic, a human being, whether male or female]
  • Matt. 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto [or for] one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto [or for] me.
  • Luke 17:2 It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin. [cause by teaching or example]
  • Ps. 119:133 Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.
  • John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
  • 1 Thess. 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.


    As always, it is best to refer to the Findings/Scoring section -- the heart of the CAP analysis model -- for the most complete assessment possible of this movie.

    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 more than eight 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.
