    here its like this.....
    G Suitable for all viewers. It is noted by the board that a "G" movie rating in Australia doesn't indicate the movie is intended for children, simply that nothing in the movie will be disturbing or harmful to children.

    PG Parental Guidance recommended for children under 15 years of age.

    M Mature, recommended for audiences 15 years and over. Note: this is not a legally restricted Australian movie rating, but movies in this category cannot be recommended for those under 15 years.

    MA Mature Accompanied. This category is legally restricted in that children under 15 cannot see "MA" films or rent them on video unless accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

    R Restricted. This category is legally restricted to adults. No one under 18 may view these movies in a cinema or rent them on videocassette.

    X Restricted. This rating applies to sexually explicit material which is restricted to viewers 18 years of age and over.

    got it from this link: http://www.movie-ratings.net/movie-r.../australia.php

    but whats the difference between R and X? they're both 18+ =_="
    they should just have a PG-[insert age here] and be done with it.

    Don't know about the aussies man, but for us (the US) R is not unless your 17+ OR you have an adult over 21 buy your ticket for you, where as NC-17 means that if your ID doesn't say 17 or older, your ass isn't getting in with the blessing of your parents, grandparents, godmother, and signature of the president.

    well first youd have to find an American theatre that actually PLAYS NC-17 rated movies


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,

    What theatre wants the hassle of having to check people? Since that rating targets a restricted demographic, too, I doubt any theatre would want to show a movie with it unless they were darn sure they'd make a profit.

    I like Canada's 14A rating. Sort of an in-between for 18A and PG13. Australia's X looks like a good idea too. (kolox, I got the impression it's to separate the films that contain violence or disturbing material from the films that only have sexually explicit content. So even thought they're both for the over eighteen crowd, it's a reference to the nature of the adult content of the movie. I could be wrong, though.)

    They'd be damn sure to make a profit! Never underestimate the profitability of the taboo. Even if it wasn't pornographic in the slightest, people would see it just for the hell of it (lets not forget South Park movie went through at least 2 showings before it got the R rating). I'm willing to bet the theaters are more worried about the weak minded pricks that would picket outside the doors... probably for something like 'profiting off of the youth's corruption'... because in America, your really not a real adult till your 21.

    I was thinking it was like that too but I argued to myself that it can't be. here (aussie) the tv station can start showing nudity, sex and all those stuff after 8.30pm. that was back (5+ years ago) then but I don't see them anymore (nver watch late night shows anymore). maybe they changed some laws. laws here keep chaning by the month. stupid PM. =_="
    btw did you just called me Kolox?

    I saw that movie back in September at a film festival...quite interesting. It confirmed my suspicions about the MPAA.

    what really pissed me off is that inclusion of catholic and protestant priests on the Appeals board, and the fact that every single one of its raters is too old and has children too old for the job. They claim to be all about the rules but they don't even follow them themselves >.<

    What are the rules, Steal? The MPAA website doesn't mention them.

    And I don't even see any requirements for the Appeals board, other than being involved in the industry.

    Y'know, I did. Whoa. Sorry Vincent, I don't even know why. ^^;

    I love lame TV editing of movies, though. Voice overs to cover up swearing are always amusing.
