Definition of the Ratings
Suitable for general audiences of all ages
A G-rated motion picture contains nothing in theme, language, nudity, sex, violence or other matters that, in the view of the Rating Board, would offend parents whose younger children view the motion picture. The G rating is not a "certificate of approval", nor does it signify a "children's" motion picture. Some snippets of language may go beyond polite conversation but they are common everyday expressions. No stronger words are present in G-rated motion pictures. Depictions of violence are minimal. No nudity, sex scenes or drug use are present in the motion picture.
Restricted to persons over 16 unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The "R" rating is restricted to those 16 and over, meaning those under 16 cannot legally view the film, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
