  • Adult - Adult audiences only.
  • NC-17 - No on 17 years old and under is admitted.
  • R - Restricted. Under 17 years old requires accompanying parent or guardian.
  • PG-13 - Parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
  • PG - Parental guidance suggested. Some materials may not be suitable for children.
  • G - General audiences. Contains nothing that would offend parents for viewing by their children.
