Question: Do senior citizens understand the disclaimer before movie trailers that say (see below)?
This is approved for APPROPRIATE audiences.
so what if some one too young is in the audience or someone is not appropriate is in the theatre?
I thought it used to be approved for all audiences.
Who are the appropriate audiences?
Appropriate audiences to me are ones who can keep their cell phones turned off until the lights go back on and keep their mouth shut while the actors are talking.
It was my understanding that any trailers would be approved for the audience of the movie playing in that theatre immediately following any trailers. That is, if you are attending a movie rated PG13 and a movie trailer appears for a movie rated R (unlikely, but it could happen), that trailer would have to be approved for a PG13 audience. In other words, nothing offensive to a PG13 crowd would be disclosed in the trailer. If that's not what you mean, I'm sorrry. I don't recall seeing the word "appropriate", but I do recall having seen "the preview has been approved for PG13 audiences".
If a person is going to go nuts watching it then it is not approved for them. It really is a BS statement. They are saying if you don't find it appropriate for you then it isn't approved for you so we haven't approved it for you, so it's your fault.
It's probably worded this way to protect the movie theaters from having little John or Jane Doe's parents from sung them. So what it means is you better shield the unappropriate's eyes so they can't see bare boobies. It's like the lady wanting to sue Justin Bieber because she went to his concert and has ringing in her ears. I would assume that the consumer would know that the concert is going to be loud.
If you take the kiddos to see a movie that is "approved" for children, and before the movie begins there is a preview for another picture, you might wonder whether the other picture is perhaps one that is "restricted" to adults.
And therefore, if you are a moralizing, priggish, nervous nellie, as so many conservative people in America are, you might wonder whether the kiddos would be exposed to something naughty in the preview that might traumatize their delicate little minds.
So the Motion Picture Association of America also rates the previews--just as it rates the pictures themselves. And the theater owners and the distributors of home-entertainment media do not show "restricted" previews along with pictures that are recommended for children.
An appropriate audience is one made up of kids whose parents permit them to see the flick..
Anyone with enough money to purchase a ticket.
Yes I do.
It sounds like a way to cover their but? I haven't noticed.
