    Are there certin limits for certin movies like for a move to get a PG13 rating, it can have X amouns of language or violence. What would be good is if they rerated all movies from the 30's to the 70's atleast. I think Psycho from 1950, should be a PG13 at the most since there is no language or on screen violence or really anything to come even close to a R rating, and So sould Jaws and Rocky to PG13 by todays standards.

    Anybody have an opinion of this

    There are apparently certain limits, like no more than 'n' number of "fuck"s to be PG-13 and so on. But over all, the whole systems pretty arbitrary, with certain directors and film series gets more leeway than others. (ie. Star Wars: In episode 1 there is an on screen stabbing and someone is cut in half... how many other films could get a PG with that?)
