I was just looking at the movie reviews for this weekend and saw the review for The Change-Up and was HORRIFIED to read what was in this movie, and yet it was only rated R. I started doing a little research and found that they have essentially gotten rid of the NC-17 movie rating, but after reading some of these reviews on MovieReports.org it seems that it still needs to be used for current movies like Hangover 2. The argument that I have about the movie ratings system is that movies like The King’s Speech was rated R for using the “F” word too many times, but then Hangover 2 was rated “R” for numerous amounts of innappropriate scenes. I think that there needs to be a review of how these movies are rated. If a movie should be deemed so innappropriate that it needs an NC-17 rating on it, than any child that is under the age of 17 cannot see this movie, regardless of parent involvement. This not only protects the parent, but also protects the child. I am confused why this rating was ever discontinued. If I had to guess I would say that the rating is still there, but whatever the equation is that makes this rating applicable, the movie producers are makign sure that they do whatever they can to stay JUST under that rating. I would like to see a total reconstruction of the rating system itself, and would like to see the criteria for each rating changed.
