PG. (that'd be the Aussie PG). Same as the show.

Yeah, the South Park Movie did have a tanker load more swearing in it, but it didn't feel weird to me, what with the worlds shoddiest censorship in the show.  ;)

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

No way! I loved both those movies! I was so shocked when Treasure Planet was described as a box office flop. What the heck is wrong with people today. All they want is sex, blood, killing, swearing, rude jokes. I mean thats all fine and dandy (well except maybe the sex). But what about beautiful animation, wonderful storylines, memorable characters, most people to day don't give a shit about those things and it really irates me.   :mad:

I believe 12 is worse then 12a as 8-11 year olds can see 12a movies but they cannot see 12 movies.

Im going to vote PG because nobody else has. Actually i've got a rational explanation; Quite a few of the futurama episodes are PGs, and the company who would produce the movie, like any other company, would want to make money. Therefore it is quite likely they will demand that it be a PG to make it accessible to a wider audience, therefore generate a larger income.

True, but many people would be turned off by the lower rating (not as much as if it were a G, but some) and it would limit the jokes that would be possible. Still, a PG could work, and work quite well.

I would say PG-13 so it can be just a little bit racier than the TV version. Not only that but  most everyone here would be able to get in.

How about a G rating?  You could replace Fry and Leela with a purple dinosaur, and the sci-fi angle with uplifting songs.  :)

Me and my friend settled with PG-13, because the show seemed like it.

Yeah, that should be fine, but I'd prefer it to be M if that meant the creators could keep it truer to their artistic vision (and include plenty of sexual references       :p).

Edit: I think we could do with a bit of information on different countries' rating
systems. Here in Australia we have:

G- For general exhibition (no restrictions)
PG- Parental guidance recommended for under 15s (no restrictions) (Futurama is rated PG here).
M- Recommended for mature audiences, 15 years and over (no restrictions).
MA- No-one under 15 admitted unless accompanied by an adult.
R- Restricted, 18+.

We also have a couple of other ratings used for games & TV guides and stuff, like C (for children), G8+ (a game with low-level violence, for example), AV (violent TV shows) and possibly some sort of XXX rating for porn.

I might have made a mistake or two (I'm not 100% sure of the actual age mentioned in the PG description, or whether under 15s can actually get into MA movies when accompanied by an adult), but that should give you an idea. Anyway, I'd like to see the UK and US (and any other country) equivalents.

We the have X rating, which is for movies like these that can't be shown on TV.

There are also unclassified films, if they are made for business, accounting, professional, scientific, educational purposes, a sporting, cultural or family event.

The TV ratings are the same as film, except that there is AV (Adult Violence - recommended 15+), which is between MA & R; there is no R or X; and there are also C (Children's programing) and P (Preschool programing).

The Video game ratings are G (same as for movies and TV), G8+ (for children 8 years and over), M15+ (Recommended for mature audiences 15 years and over), and MA15+ (Restrictions apply to people under 15).

We also have ratings for publications:
Unrestricted, Unrestricted M (recommended for 15+, Resticted R category 1 (18+, can't be sold in QLD), and Restricted category 2 (18+, only displayed/available in adult shops, can't be sold in QLD)

Anything above G. PG is ok for Futurama, but I think that PG-13 is best. It's not worth being rated R. G sucks usually.

PG or PG-13, whatever as long as it was written as well as the shows.

Well the shows do have alot of sexual references and curses(ass) so i'd assume that it'd be PG13

Really. It's not to soft for PG but not to harsh for R.
