Mommy Bear says: Dec. 20, 2011

I think this movie is rated incorrectly, as I think a lot of movies are. No one, even adults, should have to see nudity in a movie and should be warned with an R rating. This is a perfect example of why we need sites like this and Mommy Bear Media.

LookingLinda62 says: Apr. 09, 2012

I have to agree with Mommy Bear, although comparitively, the R-rated movies of today are much more graphic, coarse, etc.  I think “Titanic” deservedly should have been rated “R” back when it was originally released.  I think there were too many “gratuitously seedy scenes and language” that could have easily been omitted without missing a beat in the [fictious, especially] part of the story.  Certainly the historical aspects did not require nudity or foul language.
