A Brief History of PG-13 by The Dissolve

You may notice that I never mention MPAA ratings. The main reasons for this are complex, but boil down to simple facts that the ratings system is arbitrary, manipulative and utterly useless for making intelligent decisions about what you and your family should see at the theater. The Dissolve brings us a short piece on the controversial PG-13 rating that’s been neutering films for the past few decades.

If you’re more interested in some of the inanity behind the rating system, I’ve found no better treatment than the 2006 documentary “This Film is Not Yet Rated” [My Review].
