Reasons Why the MPAA Film Rating System is Terrible

The Top Ten

1 They put too much emphasis on nudity and profanity instead of violence

I'd rather have my kid watch a porno than a snuff film. - BeatlesFan1964

2 A movie will get a PG rating if there is a brief sexual innuendo even though there is nothing else that can be considered PG rated
3 The Passion of the Christ got an R rating instead of an NC-17
4 A movie will get an R rating only if the F word is used more than 5 times
5 Movies get NC-17 ratings for sex more than violence
6 Orgazmo was rated NC-17 although there was no on-screen sex

I don't’ Know Why Was Orgazmo An NC-17? I Mean, !... Seriously... Probably The MPAA Just Slapped Them With This Rating And Didn’t Give Them Advise On What Cuts Are Required To Get An R Rating Is Because They Usally Ignore On The Indie Filmakers! I Had Heard That The Only On-Sreen Penis In The Film Is A Dildo. Why Would Only A Dildo Be That Offensive? In Comparison To Scary Movie, It Was Rated R For Ejaculation And An Erect Penis. That In Comparison Sounds Very Surprising.. - BurnAux

7 They gave Finding Dory a PG rating
8 G.B.F was rated R only because of the gay characters
9 The Lion King and The Hunchback of Notre Dame were rated G instead of PG
10 The system is outdated

The Contenders

11 They gave The Boy a PG-13 rating

Just way too frightening to be PG-13. - Croy987

12 They Gave Poltergeist a PG Rating

That film had a guy's face being peeled off.

13 They Gave Jaws a PG Rating
14 Howard the Duck and Sixteen Candles Were Rated PG Even Though Both Films Had Naked Female Breasts In Them
15 They Gave Love Is Strange an R Rating Just Because It Had a Gay Couple
16 They Gave Drag Me to Hell a PG-13 Rating
