The G rating is a joke

CNN is running an article about the content of G-rated films. I wonder how many parents use the MPAA rating system as their sole guide in determining whether their kids can see a movie.

We're pretty careful about what we allow Boo to watch - although I admit I let an episode of Iron Chef America that had chefs lopping heads off of trout slip under my radar. I don't want Boo picking up defiant, bullying, or violent behavior from TV or movies. I may be depriving him of valuable cultural references that will scar him in kindergarten, but I can live with that.
