“I want to see whatever movie is rated ‘Um holy shit.’”
~America’s movie going audiences
America likes going to see the movies. Granted, they don’t always like going to see good movies, but movies are still seen nonetheless. Of course, we don’t want children under the age of 4 seeing dismemberments, and we really like making it hard for thirteen year olds to see large projected breasts, so the MPAA is there to put arbitrary ratings on each movie.
Obviously, each of these ratings represents a different level of American values. Because some movies like to have vegetables talk to you about Jesus, and are rated accordingly, while other’s like to say “motherfucker” while they explode the shit out of a plane. That is why we are here with a handy guide to let you know what to expect when you’re watching a film of a certain rating.
