Rating System Wiki
MPAA R 2013.svg

An R rated film is unsuitable for children. In this case, content is not suitable for under 17 years of age. Those under 17 must be accompanied by an adult (at least 18 years old). It may include strong brutal and graphic violence (including blood), excessive strong language, nudity, and drug use. The R rating is partially legally enforced under United States federal and state laws. The age restriction is mandatory. It is an offense to allow unaccompanied minors to watch an R-rated film in a cinema. Tennessee state law set the minimum age to view an R-rated film (including NC-17) in theaters without adult accompaniment at 18. It was enacted in 1989 and it is the only state in the United States where the minimum viewing age is higher. The R rating is the most common of the MPA ratings in cinemas. It means: Restricted - Under 17 Requires Accompanying Parent or Adult Guardian.
