Movie Ratings Information
Welcome to the website about movie ratings around the world!
Since the dawn of mass media, many countries have attempted to regulate, control, or even block certain messages or content from being exhibited to their citizens at large.
Today, most democratic states are primarily interested in "classifying" (as opposed to "censoring") media products--especially movies--into age appropriate categories. The result has been the formation of various movie rating boards and offices which typically advise, and often enforce their decisions through legislation, as to what ages of children may see a particular title.
Please click on a country you are interested in knowing more about. We plan on adding additional countries in the months ahead.
- USA MPAA Movie Ratings
- Canadian Movie Ratings

You can also look for a particular movie title on our search page.
Also, we invite film classification boards from around the world who are interested in having their information posted on this website to contact us. Also, if your classifications are incorrectly represented in any way on this site, please let us know. We hope to maintain the accuracy of this information, and your input is greatly appreciated.
