If you’re looking for a movie you can put on for kids, or something you can comfortably watch with your grandma, CringeMDb can help. As the name implies, it helps you to avoid cringe-inducing scenes in movies with misleading ratings.

When you’re browsing through Netflix, a rating and some cover art isn’t always enough to know what you’re getting into. CringeMDb is a simple web app that lets you search a movie by title and see if it’s “certified cringeworthy,” or something you’d probably be better off watching with different people around. It will also tell you why the movie isn’t ideal for family viewing.

If you’ve already seen the movie, or want to add your opinion to the mix, you can “agree” or “disagree” with the movie’s listing and help the service become more accurate. You probably don’t need CringeMDb all the time, but a PG-13 rating, for example, can mean a lot of different things. You can try it yourself at the link below.
