MPAA Statement on the Rating of 3 Generations

April 28, 2017

WASHINGTON – In response to inaccurate information in some news reports about the Classification and Rating Administration’s (CARA) review of 3 Generations, the Motion Picture Association of America issued the following statement from Chris Ortman, Chief Spokesperson and Vice President of Corporate Communications.

“This film has gone through all of the regular procedures outlined in CARA’s Rules. While we cannot discuss the process for a particular film due to a confidentiality policy, we can confirm that TWC has accepted the PG-13 rating for the last version of 3 Generations screened by CARA.

“While we regularly meet with a wide range of organizations to discuss the rating system, no outside groups have any influence on the rating process. Each film is rated by a team of raters, who are themselves parents, in order to serve CARA’s purpose of providing information to parents about viewing choices for their children.”
