On September 27, 1990, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the organization that voluntarily gives movies their ratings, debuted NC-17 (No One Under 17 Admitted) as a replacement for the X rating, which was thought to have become too closely associated in the public’s mind with pornography.
What’s the difference between NC-17 and rated R?
An NC-17 rating would bar those under 17 from viewing the film. An R-rating allows under 17s to attend a film with accompanying parent or adult guardian. The rating indicates the film contains adult activity, harsh language, intense graphic violence, drug abuse or nudity.
What is bad about the NC-17 rating?
Rated NC-17 for gratuitous violence, obscene sex/nudity, and harsh language; edited version rated R for strong graphic bloody violence and gore, pervasive language, some sexuality, nudity, and drug use. Uncut version unrated.
