  1. NUGA's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    The MPAA is a problem. They are essentially nerfing creativity in film in a, frankly, borderline unconstitutional way not unlike the censorship done in Portugal during the mandate of the fascist dictator Salazar. That being said, the movie wants to spend more time exposing said censors in a ersatz suspense with an inconclusive finale instead of reaching to the core of the problem which is comes from American though.

  2. Susana Bessa's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    It lacks balance throughout, but it is an eye-opener nevertheless.

  3. Au Contraire's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    While voluntary, only movies submitted to and rated by the MPAA will be widely shown in US theaters. This alarming documentary exposes the make up of this super secret cadre that censors and rates the movies we see or don't get to see. The conservative bias of this group may or may not surprise you, but you should be conscious, while viewing any movie, the untoward influence they wield on the final product.

  4. tylergfoster's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    An okay doc that reveals some of the MPAA's devious ways, then also wastes time in a van with Kirby Dick waiting outside the MPAA's office, and dives into really questionable territory suggesting that screen violence begets real violence, and that Gunner's Palace should've gotten a PG-13 because it was "important."

  5. mpho3's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    As one talking head says, "People have no idea what they're not seeing." Exposes the MPAA as much as it can, and in that sense is really valuable, yet the docu is somewhat monotonous. The point about how tightly cloistered, selectively puritanical, and overly powerful the org is could have been made w/out devoting so much screen time to the detective and the investigative work. 3.5 stars

  6. Elvia Francis's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    The fact that oral sex toward a female and female sexual pleasure is rated NC-17 while a blowjob and a male sexual experience is rated R is complete b.s. and it promulgates sexism and ignorance within the American culture!

  7. oldeuboi's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    Insightful. Just a wish sometimes the MPAA is a bogus

  8. Santa Be's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    "american" view on sexuality, especially female orgasms and pleasure is very weird. Surprising how simple scenes of pleasure, without even showing full nudity, can be a bigger problem, than an outrageous violence and terror.

  9. Kirby's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    I didn't agree with some of the stuff the film was talking about and it was all over the place.

  10. film_lies101's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    It kind of got off course when it went to the personal lives of the private investigators. Those people would have made a good subject for an entirely different documentary

  11. Dzimas's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    Not that I have much sympathy for Kevin Smith or Matt Stone, but fun to see how the process works.

  12. thepha's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    Very interesting and entertaining, as well as revelatory for those willing to listen. The ignorance enrages, as does the audacity of how irrelevant the MPAA function is under a veil of secrecy for the intent of creating the illusion of relevance.

  13. Eingya's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    Interesting, entertaining and informative.

  14. Robby Justiss's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    I enjoyed this movie. I had no idea the MPAA was so corrupt.

  15. Felix Millan's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    Pretty good documentary but it did not offer any solutions or a call to action. It is pointless to debase something and not try to come up with a plan to fix it.

  16. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    It didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, but at least it gave examples?

  17. RaySquirrel's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    The film presents some valid criticisms against the MPAA, such as they are essentially a front organization for a handful of studios and venues to maintain a monopoly over domestic film distribution. But the film also lingers on a few extremely lame criticisms, centering on some idea of maintaining control of the culture. It just seems to ignore the fact that not everyone WANTS to see movies 'Boys Don't Cry'.

  18. Alvaro's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

  19. Ryan Estabrooks's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    Very entertaining documentary, it's also kind of sad being an American and watching this. I hate censorship in this country!

  20. Brian Ackley's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    Although the mystery that is the MPAA inately offers much fun speculation, Kirby Dick's well-intentioned and hyperfocused assult on the veiled association is ultimately a hodge-podge of artificial suspense, mock adventure, high-moral ramblings, and sexualized skin clips. This Film does manage to be entertaining and informative enough to see once, but the debate Dick is looking for is in middle America, not Hollywood.

  21. IndyLIVE's rating of the film This Film Is Not Yet Rated

    I have to disagree with the below comment. No, it didn't offer any solutions, but most documentaries arguing any particular viewpoint don't either. Religulous didn't, none of Michael Moore's films do, and plenty of others. I think the point is to get the audience thinking for their own solutions rather than having it handed to them.
