Website MPAA Official Website

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) is an American trade association that represents the six big Hollywood studios. It was founded in 1922 as the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA) to advance the business interests of its members. In its formative years it took on the role of devising guidelines for film content which resulted in the creation of the Production Code, and currently administers the MPAA film rating system. Every Nickelodeon Movies film assigned a certain rating, based on their content. Violence, sexual content, substance abuse, and strong language are all things that are taken into consideration when rating a film. There are currently five ratings: G, PG (previously GP), PG-13 (adopted in 1984), R, and NC-17 (previously X). If a film has not yet been assigned a final rating, the label "THIS FILM IS NOT YET RATED" is used in TV spots, advertisements, and the official websites of the films. For more information about the MPAA rating system, see below.
