Conservative film critic Michael Medved opines in USA Today that an across-the-board ratings system should be implemented for movies, TV, video games and music. He also takes a page from Bozell, arguing that the “PG-13″ rating should really be renamed “R-13.”
The new head of the Motion Picture Association, Dan Glickman, should make his mark by changing PG-13 to “R-13″ — recognizing that today’s PG-13 pictures come much closer to “R” in edgy, adult-themed substance. It’s also appropriate for theater-owners to make honest attempts to restrict admission to the new R-13 rating — asking ticket holders unaccompanied by adults to show they’re at least 13 before they’re admitted.
Next up on the agenda: National ID cards for 13-year-old moviegoers.
