Have you ever wondered where G-Rated Movies went? They basically don’t exist, except for Pixar movies. Why did the MPAA allow this to happen? In truth, the American Motion Picture Association’s rating system encourages movie to be more “adult.” American movies basically have two ratings, PG-13 and R, with PG used for children’s movies. Meanwhile, the Internet has figured out how to describe which movies are for which age group. Other countries have figured out that you can put age-based ratings on movies. Why can’t the MPAA do this? I ask these questions and more in this video.

    Thanks for the video! I got here because I saw that the Wizard of Oz was rated G and thought to myself “I’m not so sure whether that would get a G rating in this day!” Mainly because there are some kind of scary scenes for a little kid. Then come to find that there are very few G movies at all now! I feel like before everything was rated G because it was the most accessible way to get in front of audiences. But now I suppose they have a countering theory guiding them.
