Put simply, no. There’s nothing illegal about bringing a 10-year-old to PG-13 movies — because that’s exactly what the “PG” in the rating means: Parental Guidance. You, as a parent (or grandparent, or guardian) are allowed to determine if your child is mature enough to handle the subject matter of a given film.
Can a 12 year old see a PG-13 movie alone?
According to the Motion Picture Association, the PG-13 label means the movie is fine for kids over the age of thirteen. It may not, however, be appropriate for children under thirteen because of language, violence, nudity, and other mature content.
Can a 12 year old watch a 15 movie?
Nope. A 15 rating means nobody under 15 is allowed full stop. It’s illegal. 12A films are the ones where younger kids can go with a parent/ adult.
How many swear words are allowed in a PG 13 movie?
MPAA. One of the things the MPAA is most well-known for is an urban legend about the number of uses of ‘f*ck’ allowed in a PG-13 film; the MPAA has never gone on record saying there is an official limit, though there does appear to be a limit at one or two for the majority of films.
What age is PG okay for?
A PG film should not unsettle a child aged around eight or older. Unaccompanied children of any age may watch, but parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger, or more sensitive, children.
