DEFINITIONS

What's the difference between an R-rating and an NC-17?

Film Games Grindhouse movie from Tarantino and Rodrigez

Playing the rating game: Sex, violence with an 'R' sells

Filmmakers push limits, then lobby against NC-17 label

R: An R-rated film may include strong language, violence, nudity, drug abuse, other elements, or a combination of the above, so parents are counseled in advance to take this advisory rating very seriously.

NC-17: This rating declares that the rating board believes this is a film that most parents will consider patently too adult for their children younger than 17. No children will be admitted.

Grind House: noun A downtown movie theater - in disrepair since its glory days as a movie palace of the '30s and '40s - known for "grinding out" non-stop double-bill programs of B-movies. From groundbreaking directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez comes the ultimate film experience: a double-bill of thrillers that will recall both filmmakers favorite exploitation films. Grind House will be presented as one full length feature comprised of two individual films helmed separately by each director. Tarantinos film, Death Proof, is a rip-roaring slasher flick where the killer pursues his victims with a car rather than a knife, while Rodriguezs film explores an alien world eerily familiar to ours in Planet Terror. Welcome to the grind house - it'll tear you in two.

LOS ANGELES No one can hawk a movie like Harvey Weinstein. But when it comes to facing off against the Motion Picture Association of America, one of the most brash studio chiefs in Hollywood can get a little sheepish. Which is why Weinstein decided to let one of the directors of his film Grindhouse be the frontman before the MPAA and its ratings board.

After all, millions were at stake. Weinstein knew that the movie, whose graphic violence brought it perilously close to an NC-17 rating, would not be shown in many theaters or be rented or sold in stores, including Blockbuster, if it received the prohibitive rating.

So he let fast-talking Quentin Tarantino pitch the movie as mainstream art.

"They don't care for me," Weinstein says of the ratings board. "When I go, they make me take chunks out of my movies. Quentin, they love."

The strategy paid off - in part. The board asked for only minor trims to Grindhouse, a horror exploitation double-feature directed by Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Though the film took in a disappointing $11.6 million for its opening weekend, Weinstein knows an NC-17 would have made the movie virtually unsellable.

He's still not sure how some scenes got through. "We were almost expecting a fight. They're hard to read."

That unpredictability is at the crux of mounting criticism of the ratings board, which has been accused of being secretive, inconsistent and out of touch with American mores.

In response, the board, which rates more than 900 films a year, is pledging to make the system more transparent for parents and filmmakers, who say they aren't sure what levels of violence and sex merit a particular rating.

Already the MPAA appears to be flexing more muscle. In early April, it took the unprecedented step of punishing a film for advertisements it deemed offensive. The ads for the horror film Captivity showed a woman being kidnapped and tortured under the headlines "Capture, Confinement, Torture, Termination."

The ads, which ran on 30 Los Angeles-area billboards and 1,400 New York taxi tops, were yanked after parents flooded the movie company, After Dark Films, with complaints. The MPAA followed by ruling that the movie would not be rated for at least 30 days, jeopardizing the film's planned May 18 release date.

After Dark executives say that though the ads were in bad taste, the studio was made an example of.

"They needed a whipping boy," company co-founder Courtney Solomon says. "They're not about protecting parents or kids. They're about keeping their power in Hollywood."

It's hardly the first such accusation aimed at the ratings board since its formation in 1968. Made up of executives from the six major studios - Disney, Paramount, Sony, 20th Century Fox, Universal and Warner Bros. - the MPAA has drawn the increasing ire of some filmmakers and smaller studio chiefs over what guidelines govern movie ratings.

Last year's documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated leveled a number of charges at the board, from working at the behest of big studios to being outright prudes.

Joan Graves, head of the MPAA's Classification and Ratings Administration, counters that the board's primary mission is to warn parents about content, not dictate it. "The whole idea is to give information to parents. When this system was started, that's all it was meant to do."

Graves conceded, however, that the MPAA has become a sounding board for complaints about the industry, from directors who hate the board's rating appeals process to moviegoers displeased with parents who bring their toddlers to graphic movies such as Saw.
