PG-13 moives has more than tripled since 1993. This study comes from American and Dutch University Researchers. The researchers suggest that movie writers increase the presence of weapons in movies because it appeals to the younger audience. This is exactly what I thought the reason for the increase was. This study doesn’t very much surprise me at all. I felt myself that PG-13 movies lately have been very violent. Some movies I were shocked to see that their ratings were PG-13 and not rated R. They also noted that sex scenes are more likely to appear in rated R movies than PG-13 films. Did this study surprise you, or did you also feel that the violence in PG-13 movies were dramatically increasing?
