The Final Countdown: Movie Ratings, True Romance and Xbox Refunds


Go here to see the bizarre realities of how movies get their ratings.

“Unless you have kids (or still are one), you probably stopped paying much attention to movie ratings a while back, but they’re actually the secret gatekeepers of Hollywood. The rating even determines whether a film can advertise via TV spots (NC-17 movies cannot). This means millions, maybe tens of millions of dollars lie between an R rating and an NC-17 rating. Even more money lies between PG-13 and R.”
