Reasons for Movie Ratings
If you're looking for a little more information than the letter rating of a movie, this site may be for you. Just type in the movie title and you'll get back a simple screen telling you not only the rating, but why that rating was given.

Kids in Mind
This tool for parents not only rates movies on a scale of 1-10 based on language, sex and violence, it also offers complete information exactly what is in the movie. Users can get information as specific as precisely how many times a particular curse word is used in the movie.

Motion Picture Association of America
The Motion Picture Association of America is responsible for screening the movies that are sent to them for rating, and to assign one of the ratings based on that movie's content. Visit this site to learn about what the ratings mean and how the system works.
