PARENTAL GUIDANCE SUGGESTED: I always enjoy observing the MPAA's explanations for their ratings, which appear below the rating in small type, be they noting that "some teen partying" helped warrant a PG-13 rating for Mean Girls, or that "momentary teen smoking" was why Hairspray was rated PG. Matineer has gathered his 10 funniest MPAA explanations, including that "strong bloody ninja violence" warrants an R, "a bawdy puppet show" warrants a PG-13 (but "graphic, crude and sexual humor, violent images and strong language; all involving puppets" can get you an NC-17), and "intense depiction of very bad weather" can get you a PG-13.
