I just read a Time article on the NC-17 rating. http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,2023441,00.html Nothing very dramatic, but along the way it made the point that we've heard before, that the studios don't want an NC-17 rating because it limits distribution and cuts into their possible audience. But then it occured to to me that many of us have complained about going to the theater because of crying and screaming kids. Given the same description for a generic movie (let's use The Hangover as an example) - I think I'd be more apt to go see an NC-17 movie than an R one, just to not have to deal with parents that bring their kids to inappropriate movies. Sure, it would reduce sales to teens; but the studio could release an "unrated" version to DVD and make up the sales there. I also think the general public is not as adverse to an NC-17 movie as it once was. What do you think, should I quit my job and go into theatrical sales and distribution?
