G-rated Law and Legal Definition

G-rated is a term used in the entertainment industry. It is the certification given to a film by a body authorized to give it. G-rated certification indicates that the specific film is appropriate for viewing by general audiences. This type of coding was developed in the 1960s to replace the then existing Motion Picture Code. G-rated films were produced in great number previously. But now the R-rated films are more in number. R-rated films are referred to restricted films which children under 17 years should see along with guardian only.
