Revised R Rating Has a Parental Warning
From The Hollywood Reporter:
LAS VEGAS -- The Classification and Ratings Administration is adding a new warning to the description of its R rating.
While the R rating requires that anyone under the age of 17 be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian, the National Association of Theatre Owners and the MPAA, which operates the ratings system, want to discourage parents from bringing smaller children to violent and sexually graphic movies. The new advisory will read: "Generally, it is not appropriate for parents to bring their young children with them to R-rated motion pictures."
