That moment when you were forced to watch movies with your family you are not supposed to. I don’t watch movies with my family, but I used to watch movies with children and opposite gender. I feel awkward when some embarrassing scenes (like sexual or violence) appears, that too all of a sudden. To avoid such situations, I often check the Movie review before watching it with my family or with young children, especially with opposite gender.
Do This Before You Watch Movies With Your Family
1. Check MPAA Ratings
MPAA Ratings will help you to pick a perfect movie for watching with your family. You can always visit IMDb to see what kind of rating they have and whether they are suitable for children viewing.
The Motion Picture Association of America’s film-rating system is used in the U.S. and its territories to rate a film’s thematic and content suitability for certain audiences. The MPAA rating scheme applies only to films submitted for rating. Following are the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) ratings.
G — General Audiences. All Ages Admitted.
Movies having this rating are Family Safe. You won’t be seeing any obscene and violence.
PG — Parental Guidance Suggested. Some Material May Not Be Suitable For Children.
Movies having this rating require Parental Guidance, that means it film may contain some material (sexual/violence) that may not be suitable for Children viewing.
PG-13 — Parents Strongly Cautioned. Some Material May Be Inappropriate For Children Under 13.
Movies having this rating are serious than ‘PG.’ That means Children (normally under 13) should not see this movie.
R — Restricted. Children Under 17 Require Accompanying Parent or Adult Guardian.
Movies having this rating are dangerous for Children (under 17). They either contain more sexual scenes or violent scenes.
NC-17 — No One 17 and Under Admitted.
Movies having this rating are not for Children under the age of 17. That’s it.
The Central Board of Film Certification (also known as Censor Board) is a statutory censorship and classification body under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India. Following are the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) ratings.
U – Unrestricted Public Exhibition

UA – Public exhibition subject to parental guidance for children (Under 12 years)
S – Specialized Audiences
This certificate is for a special screening for people like doctors or scientists for experimental or testing purposes.
Also heard that CBFC will now be asked to certify films under the U, 12+, 15+, A and S categories
2. Check out Celebrity Movie Archive
This is not a kind of site I should be sharing, but it is pretty useful on one side. Celebrity Movie Archive is the largest archive of nude celebrity video clips on the net. So before watching any movie, you can use this database to check whether that movie contains any sexual scenes. It’ll also list the number of sex scenes (including the name of the actress who did it) present in the movie, so you can be alert to avoid such scenes.
And when you click a particular scene link, it’ll display images related to the scene. It’ll be helpful for us to predict where the scene happens.
