PG-13. Anything less would feel dumbed down (though straight PG could work well enough, I guess...). Anything more would just be too jarring.  I just want Futurama on a grander scale, not any more "edgy" or "adult" or anything like that...

At first I thought "X-rated!!Yeah!", but the thought of seeing the Planet Express Crew doing the worm both sickens and disturbs me!   puke

Anyway, I have gone for PG-13. A feature-length episode of Futurama ( in all its glory! ) sounds pretty damn good to me!!

PG-13. Is PG-13 the same as 12a? Cause hear in the U.K. we have a rating, 12a, which means 12 year olds or older but children 8 or above can see it as long as they are with an adult over 18.

PG-13. Futurama would suck as a PG movie. Too kiddy.

Ultra-porn.  You have to be at least 60 to get in.

Seriously, though, I'd want it to be pretty much the same as it is on TV.

I am not too well versed in US ratings but from what I do know, PG-13 seems the most sensible.

Ideally it would be PG-13, and it probably would, since as a movie it would fit in more jokes and language than a normal episode.

You do know that X and NC-17 are the same thing, right?

It should be PG-13, because more people will want to see standart Futurama.
But for myself I will choose NC-17 (Fry kissing Leela will simply be not enough, you know what I mean  smile )

Futurama... PG-13 of course.
anything less = stupid, censored humor, and wont be very funny.
anything more = would ruin the good name of 'Futurama' and would'nt make it well in the box office sales.

I would guess so. Canada's equivilant is actually 14a, but PG-13 is pretty much the same thing.

PG-13 definately. I wouldn't want it to be more bad or too kiddy. Stay the same as it is.

I think in a movie you should be able to do things you can't do on TV. Have a few people going "fuck this" or "that's bullshit" occasionally, silhouette nudity or something, but don't go too far over the line. It could still get the PG-13.

Hmm. I'm so used to the characters and the limits they have on TV, and them saying "Fuck this" would just be too weird in my opinion.

G =Kiddy-Kids only,also known as "The Disney Rateing"

PG:A 8-11 year old kind of movie.

PG-13:A good one for the 12- adults or more mature kids.

R:Good for teens- adults.Many horror films have this one.

X:One word:"Porno"

NC-17:The newest rateing for the US.
Just a little bader than R


I pick PG-13.

Hey, it sounded weird in the South Park movie too but they pulled it off beautifully. I'm not saying too much...maybe just someone saying "I've had enough of this fucking shit" once and nothing more. I would love to hear it. It sounds like a Professor line.

If FOX is supplying the money for this movie, then they'll be strong on the censorship. So a line like that might get stuck on the cutting room floor and perhaps appear as a deleted scene on DVD.

X was originally designed to be the rating for movies that were after R, but it got linked so much to porn that they came up with NC-17 to replace it.

They could have Boxy in it and then at the end he could talk and then walk away. Which would be a good excuse for the "Fucking Shit", line. :heartwarming: Oh, Boxy!

Yeah, I think that they would definitely show things that the Fox censors would not allow, but I don't think they will show full nudity. They would want viewers at the age of fourteen to be allowed in. R would not go over well with them. I choose PG-13.

PG-13. although i agree that a pg wouldnt be so bad, seeing that there are lots of good futurama eps that didnt have anything offending.

PG-13. This is because it would still be suitable for the number of younger movie-goers who may see it, and yet the rating still allows the writers to make the movie just like an episode of Futurama ( and perhaps even with a bit more leniency than they got on TV).

I would like to a see a rated R Futurama movie. Think about if the movie had entirely revamped animation (like they did for the PPG movie) and had tons of blood like "Heavy Metal" that would be absolutely awesome!

If there were going to be a Futurama movie, I would want it to be a lot like Titan AE, just...better.

Well, to each his own.

PG-13 would be fine for me, that seems to be about the level that the TV show is at.

It wouldn't be hard to beat Titan AE anyway.

From what I know about the U.S. rating system (which is surprisingly a lot), PG-13 would be the most suitable. It's just a tad edgier than the show itself, although it'd still be suitable for kids and most fans. It'd suck for them to go to stupid extremes just because it's a movie, but it'd suck even more for them to tone it down for a movie. I'd say to keep it within relatively the same boundaries as the show.

I'd say PG-13 which is about the level that the game is at (There are a few things in it that FOX definitly wouldn't let them air on TV). Like Beamer said, I don't want them to push the envelope just because they can. I want the type of humor I loved when Futurama was on TV.

No, you are not alone. I loved Titan A.E. I saw it like 3 times in theaters and bought the DVD.

By way. This is for fryfanSpyOrama. I saw Treasure Planet and I think I'm the only fan of that film.

For my vote on the rating. PG-13: For Cartoon Sci-fi violence, Rude humor, Mild language and some drug use.

I bet 10 dollars if when the film gets made, it will have the exact same rating and reasons.

In England we have :

E - Everyone
U - Universal
PG - Parental Guidence
12 - For 12's and over silly!
12a - Slightly worse than a 12
15 - for 15's and over
18 - you know the rest...

As for what rating I would like a Futurama film to be I would go with 12a at the lowest and 15 and the highest.
The reason I choose these ratings is that they did say in a commentary that it was a more adult show than the Simpsons but they didn't get the timeslot they wanted which I think was meant to be around 8pm and after.

Okay, I'm an Aussie, so I'll explain this to you...

G: Same as Aussie G.
PG: Same as Aussie PG, although we can get away with a tad more.
PG-13: Similar to Aussie M, although I don't believe they can show over-the-top violence, say "fuck" excessively or show nudity, like our M. Still, relatively similar.
R: Nearly same as Aussie MA.
NC-17: Nearly same as Aussie R.

As you can see, their rating system is very similar to ours, just with different names and slightly different restrictions. Still, if a Futurama movie was released in Australia - it would most likely get rated PG or M, depending on how far they decide to with the US rating.

PG-13 would be the basic decent rating for the Movie, something we'd all be used to. I wouldn't wanting to be seeing Leela or even Bender saying "Fuck". I just couldn't really see it.
