Should you be able to watch a film if your under the set age certificate?

In my opinion - yes. I think that the certificates should just be "reccomended" and something you don't necessarily have to stick by, if a child is under the certificate it should be up to the parents to judge the maturity of the teen.

So Pit, whatdya think?

I think any age should be able to watch any film, but only if they bring honey to the cinemas.

I've been getting into 18s since I was 13 so I'm not that fussed, but watch This Film Is Not Yet Rated for more about movie censorship in america, it's a brilliant film.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

The ratings are basically just recommendations here in the US.

The only ones the theaters may enfore is the R rating, which means you have to be 17 or older, or have a parental guardian with you.

99% of theaters don't care if you're not 13 for a PG-13 movie, because most kids under that age usually have a parent with them anyway.


And +1 to "This Film is Not Yet Rated". FANTASTC film.

Depends on the maturity of the kid.The parents should know what's suitable for their kids in the the younger age brackets.

But by the time a kid's 16/17 they probably already have seen everything that's out there so there really is no point in paying attention to age certificates.
#8
Yeah, screw censorship. Wrong and bad. Make better movies. I watched 18s when I was ten and I turned out fine.


#11
I think you should be allowed in to some extent. You don't want 6 year olds watching some films.
#12
Buy a ticket to a PG-13 movie.

Walk into the R rated movie.

EDIT: I voted yes.

I reckon the OP just got knocked back from trying to go to see an 18


It's already like that with the '12A' rating, which is effectively the same as a PG from all I can see.

It's a bit of a tricky one - the same as with alcohol really - There should be some sort of discretion, but it's hard because, put simply, some people are idiots. Some 15 year olds would be mature enough to 'deal with' whatever, but there are plenty who are complete cretins.

If you look like you can handle it, why not? If you obviously look young (like 9) You should have a parent with you.

I'ts a guideline, but I still think some parents are still stupid when it comes to taking guildelines into consideration.

Watching a parent bring a couple little toddlers into the movies to watch 300 until they start bawling their eyes out was a stupid idea, for example.

IMO your age only gives a loose idea of your maturity. So age certificates shouldn't be enforced, only recommended.
#22
Its like an individualist thing, yeah? I have never really been disturbed by a movie and I've been watch 18+ stuff since I was way young. But some things kids probably shouldn't see like really extreme porn or Saw.

You can also have somebody over 21 buy a ticket. (So say I'm 23 and my little broseph is 16, I can take him to see whatever movie)

There are movies that aren't even allowed to be shown. So yeah, I guess age doesn't always matter.

Also, it's always been like that. Underage kids have bought/downloaded/snuck into 18+ movies since the beginning of film history itself. It's a good system, if you ask me.
