Where do I find the the industry ratings for these movies (eg., PG, 14+, R). Have I watched so many movies that I'm going blind? I can't seem to find them. Thanks!

Bala is correct, the site does not list them. One reason for this is that the ratings systems vary from country to country. IMDb - the link bala provided, is an excellent source.

Another very helpful source, especially if you are wanting to check if a movie is age appropriate for anyone in your household is Kids-In-Mind (http://www.kids-in-mind.com/). They provide a quite thorough breakdown of anything one might find offensive. They do not have every movie on their site, but their list is quite comprehensive.

In the United States the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) voluntary ratings are:

G- General audience, suitable for all ages

PG- Parental Guidance suggested

PG-13 Some material inappropriate for those under the age of 13

R- Those under 17 must be accompanied by an adult

NC-17- Nobody under 17 admitted

Yes, but our site doesn't list the rating of the movies, which is what the poster was asking.

The ratings system is different in Canada, as it is in most countries, so it's a good idea to check what about a movie has caused it's rating, rather than just go by the rating itself. There are some PG movies I've found more offensive than any R rated movies. It's often a very subjective thing, and cultures vary widely as to what is acceptable for younger viewers.
