Movie Morals Purpose and Ratings

Overview:

Watching movies can be a fun escape, but can and should be more than a passive reception of messages.  Movies and other media present a chance for young people to critically analyze and discuss characters, plot, and message. Rather than taking away the fun, this discussion can make the experience richer, while sharpening young peoples’ sense of right and wrong.  This resource is aimed to help you students practice your ability to discern and critically analyze all texts and all media that are offered to you and decide whether or not to consume them.

Horton Hears a Who- Rated G
Its message, like many of Seuss’ tales, is one of inclusion and protecting those who can’t protect themselves. There’s some mild potty humor and name-calling (“boob,” “idiot,” and “stupid”). Vlad, the slightly scary bird, is funnier than he is disturbing. No rating from Catholic News Service.

The Pursuit of Happyness
The film contains a few instances of crude language and marital discord. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II — adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned.

Remember the Titans- Rated PG
The movie includes racist comments and situations and some locker room insults. A major character is critically injured in a car accident. When the boys refer to a long-haired teammate as a “fruitcake,” he responds by kissing one of them on the mouth. There are some scuffles and threats of more serious violence. Ultimately, Remember the Titans is a deeply moving film about the courage of individuals and the power of sports to transcend perceived and ingrained differences. No rating from Catholic News Service.

Soul Surfer
Despite the intensely emotional (but nongraphic) shark onslaught and its aftermath, “Soul Surfer” can be enjoyed by parents and mature young people alike. The Catholic News Service classification is A-II — adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG — parental guidance suggested.
