Rated Cricket is the 25th episode segment of Big City Greens.
On the trip to Big City movie multiplex, Cricket thinks he's too mature for a kids' movie, so he sneaks into a grown-up movie.
The Greens head to the Cinema Galaxy to see Croblins 2 when Cricket catches the poster for Kiss of Death. Feeling that seeing a movie of its caliber will make him more mature, he begs Bill to allow him to see it, but he, Tilly and Gramma Alice shoot him down. As they enter the theater, Alice decides to scout for seats, while Tilly explores and Bill goes to get popcorn. Angered that he cannot see Kiss of Death, Cricket beats up a Croblins 2 cardboard stand that earns the respect of some local teenagers. The teens are going to see Kiss of Death and Cricket claims that he is going to see that movie too and joins them, only to be turned away for not having a ticket. Cricket then vows to sneak into the movie.
Alice manages to swindle a family out of their seats and claim them for herself. However, several kids begin to flock to her area and she tosses them away. She is finally stymied by a giant man who claims to be the #1 Croblins fan. As Bill goes to buy popcorn, he is amazed by the claim that it is the "best popcorn in the galaxy", but is disappointed with the flavor. He decides to take the time to teach the employee how to make authentic popcorn. Tilly passes by an employee giving out 3D glasses. Taking the advertisement's claim that it will take you to another dimension literally, Tilly begins searching her "new surroundings" and causes trouble wherever she goes.
Bill's perfect popcorn enamors the vendor who states that he will follow his example by taking an hour to make a new batch. This angers the other patrons who chase Bill for his popcorn, but he is rescued by Tilly. Cricket manages to get into Kiss of Death, but realizes that the film is not an action-horror like he expected, but an over dramatic supernatural romance film, disgusting him and causing him to flee the theater in terror. The whole family makes it to the Croblins 2 theater, with Cricket scaring away the Croblins fan, and the family sits down to enjoy the movie with Cricket deciding that he does not need to grow up right away.
