    I would be interested to know the gross revenue of a rated-R action movie compared to a PG-13.

    Foul language makes a movie?

    You folks are hilarious. I just watched the director's cut of "A Streetcar Named Desire" on DVD the other day and you should see some of the (tame) stuff they had to cut out of the original release. An all-time classic flick and no one complained about not having enough f-bombs.

    I rarely darken the door of a theater, but I'm looking forward to Sicko and Die Hard IV coming out the same week. I'm gonna see 'em back to back.

    It's not just the language. When you're talking about an action film, there are serious limits as to what they can show violencewise...

    You trying to say you can't watch a movie without the F-note?

    JackS and Hondo, it's not that we can't watch a movie without the word fuck. It's that a movie of this nature is going to have a lot of cursing. This well-established character, in particular, is known for a lot of F-bombs. For the studio to hamstring the movie and the character in the name of perceived profits is creatively offensive.

    So, if it's a PG 13, anyone 13 and under can go see it unaccompanied by an adult?

    13 and over can see it without an adult.

    I agree that it's Falcon, too.

    As for seeing the fourth movie in any series, I'll pass.

    That's what I meant. :)

    So what's next PG17?

    Sounds like our system except it's 14 & 18 up here.

    I did a quick look at what's playing here and not a single "restricted" flick (you have to be 18 or older to get in)

    Up next is R. I don't recall if R is for 17 and older or 18 and older.
    The ratings go:
    G, PG, PG-13, R

    I don't even think those films would merit an R rating if they were made in the 80s.
