G - General Audiences -- All ages admitted. Signifies that the
film rated contains nothing most parents will consider offensive for even
their youngest children to see or hear. Nudity, sex scenes, and scenes
of drug use are absent; violence is minimal; snippets of conversation
may go beyond polite conversation but do not go beyond every-day expressions.
PG - Parental Guidance Suggested -- Some material may not be
suitable for children. Signifies that the film rated may contain some
material parents might not like to expose to their young children -- material
that will clearly need to be examined or inquired about before children
are allowed to attend the film. Explicit sex scenes and scenes of drug
use are absent; nudity, if present, is seen only briefly; horror and violence
do not exceed moderate levels.
PG-13 - Parents Strongly Cautioned -- Some material may be inappropriate
for children under 13. Signifies that the film rated may be inappropriate
for pre-teens. Parents should be especially careful about letting their
younger children attend. Rough or persistent violence is absent; sexually-oriented
nudity is generally absent; some scenes of drug use may be seen; some
use of one of the harsher sexually-derived words may be heard.
R - Restricted -- Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult
guardian (age varies in some jurisdictions). Signifies that the rating
board has concluded that the film rated may contain some adult material.
Parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their children
to see it. An R may be\ assigned due to, among other things, a film's
use of language, theme, violence, sensuality, or its portrayal of drug
use. Theater owners and film critics are advised as to why the R rating
was assigned; parents are therefore urged to contact their local theatres
to learn why the rating board chose the R rating.
NC-17 - No children under 17 Admitted (age varies in some jurisdictions).
Signifies that the rating board would feel that the film rated is patently
adult and that children under the age of 17 should not be admitted to
it. The film may contain explicit sex scenes, an accumulation of sexually-oriented
language, and/or scenes of excessive violence. The NC-17 designation does
not, however, signify that the rated film is obscene or pornographic in
terms of sex, language, or violence.
