Remember that time when you were watching a movie, and everything was totally PG-13. But just then, your parents decided to walk into the room. And that is also when expecting it the least, an explicit scene begins. You struggle to grasp the remote, and to breathe. Eye-contact, what’s that?

Yeah! That’s the moment when you wished somebody could have warned you about the film, and whether it’s safe to watch it at home, or with parents.

Guess what, your wish has been granted by CringeMDb, named after the popular Internet Movie Database IMDb.

No spoiler alerts. CringeMDb just warns you about the film.

The website rates movies as “parent-safe” or “cringeworthy”, but it only includes films released between 1995-2015. And Hallelujah you’re saved from any awkward moments with your parents.

See, it’s as simple as that. Good bye embarrassing moments. 

Unfortunately no Bollywood movies are a part of this website. But do we need a website when we already have a sanskari censor board?

Nevertheless, we at The Quint have decided to list some movies that are cringeworthy and should not be watched with, or without parents. Period!


Bang Bang

The film is a bad remake of its painful original Knight and Day. The only blessing in disguise is Hrithik Roshan’s f-AB-ulous body. Apart from him, everything is ‘cringeworthy’, including Katrina Kaif.

To keep your insanity intact, it’s best to avoid the film even if it’s playing on television.


Kyaa Kool Hai Hum 3

The trailer of the third instalment of the raunchy pormedy (porn +comedy) film is out and is oozing obscenity.

If CringeMDb had it’s way, it would have not only rated the film, but also the trailers ‘R’ – for strong sexual content, graphic nudity, use of foul language throughout, and definitely some time-tested violence.

But then again, for films like this, you really don’t need a website to tell you what’s gross and what’s not.


Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

Yes, we know this is the most sanskari film. It’s all about joint family, magnum opus sets, educated but jobless women dressed as jewellery shops, family values, prem and samaan, and horse drawn carriages. So you must be wondering, what’s so ‘cringeworthy’ about PRDP then?

My friends, it’s the entire plot, the script – when it comes to temporality, the film and our reality are heavens apart. So apart that suspension of disbelief is not even possible. Get real Sooraj Barjatya.



If the name is so ‘cringeworthy’, you can imagine what the film must be like. The film was a waste of time and money. But hats off to Sajid khan for having the talent to make such an awful and pain inducing film. Even CringeMDb would shudder at the thought of rating the film.
