Plugged In exists to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving you and your family the essential tools you need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which we live. Through reviews, articles and discussions, we want to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."


Family uses Plugged In as a ‘significant compass’

"I am at a loss for words to adequately express how much it means to my husband and me to know that there is an organization like Focus that is rooting for us. Just today I was reading Psalm 37 and thinking about how your ministry provides ways to 'dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.' We have two teenagers and an 8-year-old in our household...Plugged In has become a significant compass for our family. All three of our kids are dedicated to their walk with Christ but they still encounter challenges. Thanks for all of your research and persistence in helping us navigate through stormy waters."

Plugged In helps college student stand-up for his belief

"Thanks for the great job you do in posting movie and television reviews online. I’m a college freshman and I recently had a confrontational disagreement with my English professor regarding an R-rated film. It is her favorite movie and she wanted to show it in class. I went to your Web site to research the film’s content. Although I had not seen the movie myself, I was able to make an educated argument against it based on the concerns you outlined. The prof said that she was impressed by my stand and decided to poll the whole class and give us a choice. We overwhelmingly voted to watch a G-rated movie instead! I’ve learned that I can trust your site and I will be using it a lot in the future.”

Plugged In brings ‘Sanity and Order’ to Non-believer

“Even though I don’t consider myself a Christian, I find your Plugged In Web site useful and thought-provoking. No one reviews movies like you do. Instead of being judgmental, you put entertainment ‘on trial.’ After presenting the evidence, you allow the jury of your readers to decide for themselves what they should do. In my opinion, you bring sanity and order to the wild world of modern day entertainment. Keep up the good work!”

Mom thinks Plugged In is the ‘BEST Christian media review site’

"Our family doesn't go to the movies until we go online and check out your assessment of a given film. I think this is the BEST Christian media review website that I've found, and I recommend it to my family and friends. Keep up the good work!"


Our hope is that whether you're a parent, youth leader or teen, the information and tools at Plugged In will help you and your family make appropriate media decisions. We are privileged to do the work we do, and are continually thankful for the generosity and support from you, our loyal readers, listeners and friends.

Track Review

Assertion: Jason Derulo speaks the language of love.

Translation: He'll have sex with any hot girl he can find, and it doesn't matter what language she knows. For Derulo, the border-blurring lingo of lust transcends all communication barriers.

"Been around the world," Jason brags in the chorus, as his faux-reggae accent struts around trumpet lines that sound vaguely Moroccan. "Don't speak the language/But your booty don't need explaining/All I really need to understand is/When you talk dirty to me/ … Get jazzy on me."

And the double entendres just keep coming: "I'm that flight you get on, international/First class seat on my lap, girl, riding comfortable/'Cause I know what the girl them need, New York to Haiti/I got lipstick stains on my passport, you make it hard to leave."

A bit later, he says he'll party with foreign girls one, two or even three at a time if they're game. "Uno, met a friend in Rio/Dos, she was all on me-o/Tres, we could ménage à three-o." And guest contributor 2 Chainz chimes in with graphic lines that … well, let's just say include the words "penis," "p‑‑‑y" and "oral sex." He wraps up his rap with, "Got her saved in my phone under 'Big Booty'/Anyway, every day I'm trying to get to it."

Then Jason just keeps on demanding, "Talk dirty to me."

In the video, Derulo and 2 Chainz dance, sing and rap their way through shots of scantily clad (foreign) women twerking, hip thrusting and undulating suggestively for the guys' smirking pleasure. It's all really nothing more than another leering excuse for an R&B song to cozy up to a creepy, objectifying, strip-club vibe while exalting casual, consequence-free sex featuring dominant, powerful men who use, abuse and discard all-too-willing women.
