The First Amendment limits the degree to which governments can censor or ban movies. The ratings system is voluntary, and there is no legal requirement that filmmakers submit their films for rating. Spielberg felt that the PG rating was too broad for the violence in these movies and suggested a PG rating. In this photo, Spielberg poses with alien character E. However, there are potentially ificant economic sanctions for those filmmakers unwilling to accept the ratings system. For example, many theater chains will not run films without ratings, and numerous publications will not run for unrated films.

The Production Code listed specifics about what would not be permitted in films and a vague imperative that films should not lower the moral standards of viewers. There were several reasons why the Production Code was replaced, including a opinion in Interstate Circuit, Inc. In addition, as the hierarchical studio system died, studios executives lost their iron grip over the content of films, which made the Production Code unenforceable. Finally, the social norms of the s allowed for more candid depictions of adult matter, and during this period there was a greater acceptance of more explicit degrees of nudity, sexuality, and violence.

The new ratings system began with four : G general audiences , M mature audiences, changed in to PG, parental guidance suggested , R restricted, no children under 17 allowed without parents or adult guardians , and X no one under 17 admitted. The ratings were revised several times over the years, to include in a new PG label, and in a new NC rating which stands for no one 17 and under admitted.

The NC rating replaced the X rating, which came to ify pornography. Since its inception, the Ratings Board of the MPAA—an eleven-member board made up of parents who are not employed by the entertainment industry—has been mired in controversy. The board has been accused of being more lenient to major studios, granting them more acceptable ratings compared to those given to independent and foreign films. The board is charged with considering a given film in its entirety, rather than taking questionable scenes out of context, but additional charges have been made that the Ratings Board looks more harshly on individual depictions of sexuality and nudity than on violence.

There is an appeals system for studios who want to contest a rating. This article was originally published in Douglas C. Dow, Ph. Leone, Ron. Vaughn, Stephen.
