How Much Is Too Much?

According to this NERVE movie website, you can actually play a game of NERVE through the Double Dog app!

We looked into it and it does seem to be the app that is the most aligned to the movie. You can send and receive real dares for money or points (called bones).

Looking into the app, we found out that someone actually completed a dare and got $2,000! You can read more about the dare on Buzzfeed.

Our question is – how much is too much? Would you be willing to do a dare for $2,000? Would it depend on the dare?

NERVE Soundtrack

The NERVE movie has an amazing soundtrack of upbeat electronic dance music. The full list is featured on Spotify, but we have dug up YouTube links for you as well! We Double Dog dare you to listen to it.

Too Risky for Nerve

In an interview with MTV, Nerve directors, Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, talk about the dare that was too risky for the final cut!

Joost: There was a sex dare, which I think if you’ve spent time on the internet, particularly the darker regions of the internet, then things tend to head in that direction.

Schulman: Always.

Joost: So it seemed to us that the game would probably push in that direction given enough time, but it was ultimately just too dark and weird.

Schulman: It may have pushed it to an R rating.

Joost: It was just too weird for a PG-13 movie.

The Nerve App has been Released

The Nerve app was released last night and it is not good. In less than 10 hours, it already has seven reviews with only two stars.

Ouch.

People are saying that you can’t even perform dares or make money. It’s just a promotional tool gone wrong.

We found a review of the app here. Read it and let us know your thoughts! Are you going to download it?

Cash and Glory

The Nerve Twitter account, @PlayNerve, most recently posted the following:

Nerve Movie Tweet on Cash and Glory
“#Nerve is the easiest way for #Players to win cash and glory. You in? In theaters July 27.”

In the movie, Nerve, Vee, played by Emma Roberts, and Ian, played by Dave Franco, play Nerve for fame and money. However, as they continue to play the game, watchers steal their identities and force them to go on dares in order to keep their money.

We wanted to play something that was just as fun, without the danger. In our search, we found an app called Double Dog. You can play for real money and fame, but there’s a system in place to make sure that it remains safe to play. Find out for yourself by downloading it here.

Why the Movie Nerve is Rated PG-13?

The MPAA rated Nerve PG-13 for material involving “dangerous and risky behavior, some sexual content, language, drug content, drinking and nudity – all involving teens.”

The movie, Nerve, begins with peer pressure. Vee, played by Emma Roberts, is pressured into playing an online game of ‘truth of dare, minus the truth’. She engages in the dare app and receives her first dare to kiss a stranger for five seconds. This can be considered dangerous and risky behavior. The trailer also shows brief nudity when Vee and Ian, played by Dave Franco, escape a store in the undergarments.

The trailer also contains potential violence and some sexual content, but the PG-13 rating seems to fair. Based off the trailer, what do you think the rating should have been?
