Nerve 

 

Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Nerve on DVD as part of the march to Christmas. The previews for this movie showed how interesting this movie is. There are plenty of interesting issues discussed in Nerve. This movies touches on the anonymous nature of the Internet, trolling, daring, Internet celebrities, getting paid for doing dumb things, and more.

There are problems with Nerve that families need to know about. Nerve contains bad language, nudity, lack of attire, blood, violence, peril, sexual content, enticement to lust, and more. Nerve pushes the envelope of what a PG-13 rated movie will allow. After watching Nerve, I think it could easily earn the ‘R’ - Restricted rating.

Nerve asks users if they want to be a player or a watcher. Watchers pay to watch, and players do the dares for money. Nerve has this odd concept that no one is in charge. No one is in control. Watchers somehow come up with dares that are very coordinated. The more watchers you get the more money. Then you can also make it into the finals and win the game. Vee Delmonico (played by Emma Roberts) is a high school senior doing the right thing. She starts playing Nerve on a dare. Things spiral out of control very quickly.

Nerve also teaches us not to snitch to the police. SPOILER ALERT! When Vee tries to tell the police she is assaulted, kidnapped, and all of the money she won is stolen. She is then told to shoot another player. She finds out there is a third category in the game - prisoner. Thankfully Vee knows a hacker friend who helps her out of the predicament.

The biggest lesson in Nerve for me is - do you make wise decisions in your life or not? Too many people want to live on the edge and get that adrenaline. Thing is they hurt themselves and others around them by making bad life decisions. Nerve reminds me to be content with the things I have and the life God has given me.
