The cinema classifications of Samoa are chosen for each film after a test screening for Samoan audiences, depending on the issues of each film (violence/sex/language/drug use etc.). These were adapted as of July 2004.

RatingsEdit

  • G: This states that anyone can watch or be admitted. There can be very mild, infrequent, or brief scenes of violence throughout the film. Sexual references/scenes, drugs/alcohol/smoking references/use, and scary scenes must be very mild or infrequent. Profanity is not allowed at this rating.
  • PG12+: This states that anyone can watch or be admitted, but parental guidance is recommended for those under the age of twelve (not mandatory). There may be mild violence (and bloody moments), sexual references/scenes, drugs references/use, alcohol references/use, and scary scenes. Mature themes are allowed. Profanity is allowed, like "damn", "hell", "crap", "shit", "bastard", "bitch", "dick", "bullshit", and "piss", as well as infrequent use of the words "fuck" and "motherfucker". Also, mentions of the Lord's/Jesus Christ's name are allowed.
  • R-15+: This states that the person must be fifteen or over to view, and may be asked for ID before being admitted. There may be moderate/excessive/graphic scenes of violence, sex (there may even be nudity), and drug/alcohol use. In terms of profanity, the words "fuck" and "motherfucker" may be used more frequently, and "cunt" may be used.
  • R-18+: This states that the person must be eighteen or over to view, and may be asked for ID before being admitted. There may be strongly graphic or excessively bloody violence, frequent use of drugs/alcohol (often in a realistic manner), and no limits on profanity.
