There has been a lot of talk lately around our house about what types of movies are acceptable to watch. Jack was asking me and Megan today about the ratings of movies.
Jack: I think I know what PG-13 means.
Me: Really? What?
Jack: It means you have to get your parents to say it's okay to watch the movie.
Megan: Actually, here is the ratings. G means general audiences. PG is for parental guidance. PG-13 means parental guidance but that you should be over 13.
Me:... (amazed that she knows that amount of detail)
Megan: And I think R means for big people only, right?
Me: Yup. It means it's restricted.
Megan: Isn't there a movie rating for X?
Me: Uh, yeah...
Megan: What is X for?
Me: That means it is for adults only. No exceptions.
Megan: But what if you wanted to buy a movie that was rated X? Like if I was going to buy it for Dad for Father's Day.
Me: Um, I don't think they would let you do that.
Megan: Even if I went to the store and said, "Um yes- I am looking for a Father's Day present for my dad. I think he would like this movie and so I'd like to buy it for him."
Megan: Why are you laughing??? Don't you think Dad would like that?
