Movie Ratings Petition sign now
Over the past few years, the MPAA ratings for movies released in movie
theaters have become strictly enforced by local and federal governments
such a way that the ratings were not originally designed to do.
were meant to be a guide for movie-goers, and particularly parents, to
what each movie contained content wise.
However, in the past few years, the government has taken steps to take
decision from parents. Parents can no longer decide what movie their
may want to go see without having to attend it with them, and let's
PARENTS DON'T ALWAYS WANT TO SEE A MOVIE THEIR CHILD WANTS TO SEE!
give their permission, but they may not want to sit through two hours
movie! It used to be that you could walk into a theater with your
and they could buy your ticket and give permission for you to see it
that many theaters would allow you to do this.
Parents should be in control of what their children want to see, not
government! It is a form of age discrimination when a 16 or
can't even buy a ticket for themselves without being turned away! In
state of Tennessee, for instance, it is a state law that no one under
age of 18 can purchase an R-rated ticket when the MPAA clearly states
at 17 you should be able to. Furthermore, you cannot purchase more
R-rated ticket without verification of age for the other tickets if you
under the age of 21.
Please, sign this petition and pass it on to all the people you know!
government is using the MPAA as a way to take control away from our
and its citizens! The ratings are meant as guides for parents made by
panel of parents. That's basically like other people's parents
our parents what we can or can't watch almost! It should be in the
of our own parents, not the government based on the decisions of a
parents at the MPAA. Ratings should still be made, but for content
should not be used as a clear restriction.
SIGN THIS SO WE CAN SEND IT TO OUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS!

I think the MPAA rating for rated R movies is great when it states that at 17 you can buy tickets, and I also think that people not abiding by those rules and not allowing those that are 17 to buy the tickets is wrong. I hope someone does something about

The MPAA ratings are supposeed to be a guidline, not the law. It is not the government's job to raise a child, it is the parent(s)'. I, for one, am tired of parents that are trying to get the government to raise their kids for them.
