Every so often, the MPAA gives a movie a certain rating and a huge uproar follows. Well, here's a thread where we can discuss such blunders by the MPAA, as well as instances where they may have gotten it right. Here are two blunders, in my mind: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Disney animated) - I think the G rating was a mistake, as the movie has very mature themes involving lust, religion and ethnic hatred. The song "Hellfire" alone should've made the film a PG. Thankfully, the MPAA hasn't been giving Disney a free pass as of late; almost every Disney animated film in the past few years has been rated PG, even the relatively innocent Lilo & Stitch. The Outlaw Josey Wales - Plenty of violence and an attempted rape complete with nudity.... and it gets a PG??? Sure, this was in the '70s, but still... And here are two movies that caused uproars when they were rated, but that I think deserved their ratings: Fahrenheit 9/11 - It deserved the R-rating, not because of the brief use of the F-word, but because of the graphic nature of the Iraq footage. I had to look away several times. Whale Rider - Everyone talks about the apparent pot-smoking by the girl's uncle, but I think the reason the movie got the PG-13 is because of two things: the "hold on to your dicks" line (that the grandpa says to the kids he is training) and the very disturbing smoking by the girl's best friend (who must've been no older than 14). These scenes were so out of place in an otherwise appropriate-for-kids film, that it almost seems as if the director was gunning for the PG-13 rating. Feel free to discuss these and other controversial MPAA decisions.
