Just when we start getting comfortable with the current rating system now comes word out of Common Sense Media that only 1 in 5 movie goers currently trust the rating system now in place. Why can't they just leave it to the theatre owner's to post their own ratings. They just can't seem to get it right!

I don't believe Common Sense. What I also don't believe is that parents give much of a hoot about ratings. I worked in a video store and after you've watched Mom and Dad grab 5 films (3 R) for the kids you stop caring very much.

But Mike, just because some parents ignore their parenting responsibilities, let's not succumb to the trend. Ever heard the saying "It takes a village to raise a child"?

I don't like the idea of being responsible for other people's children. We enforce the R rating, but it gets tough when you have PARENTS yelling at you for not letting little Jimmy watch 'House of 1000 Corpses'.

If only you had to pass a test to be a parent...

Our "R" Rated films are frequenly French or German & Swahili. This helps keep the children at bay.
