Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Scream}}'' was originally given an NC-17 by the MPAA, and Creator/WesCraven was forced to make many cuts to bring it down to an R. For ''Film/Scream2'', Craven expected to be given another NC-17, so he put far more blood and gore than he wanted to have more options when it came time to cut it down. To his surprise, the film was still given an R.

* ''Literature/LifeTheUniverseAndEverything'' features the "Award for the Most Gratuitous Use of the Word 'Fuck' in a Serious Screenplay", a reference to this trope. It's also arguably an example, as the word "fuck" is rarely used in the books otherwise. As the [[Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy radio adaptation]] was broadcast at 6.30pm, there was always a convenient [[SoundEffectBleep starship engine roar]] whenever the award in question was discussed.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' was gunning for a PG-13, whatnot with the adult jokes and cursing in the film, but it still got a PG, similar to the ''NIMH'' example above.

* The closest Creator/IlluminationEntertainment offered a G rating was ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'', and that's rated PG due to a brief "damn" featured.

** A possibly more straight example is hinted at by Van Robichaux, the co-writer of the [[Film/SonicTheHedgehog2018 upcoming movie]], hinting at the idea that Sony was aiming for a PG-13 rating. Though it's unknown if the people at Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures, the ones currently producing the movie after Sony left the rights to them, have this in mind or not.

* ''Film/LaLaLand'' was rated PG-13 solely for "language." It's believed that it would have actually gotten a PG-rating were it not for a single f-bomb uttered by Creator/RyanGosling's character.

* The live-action ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' movie was originally planned to have a PG-13, and be more of a teen-oriented parody relying on humor fit for college students, such as jokes about Shaggy and Scooby-Doo being stoners and Velma possibly being a lesbian. However, Creator/WarnerBros felt that in order for a Scooby-Doo film to make money, it must be marketed to kids, and the film was heavily edited down to get a PG. The film is still the tribute/parody it set out to be, just with cleaner humor. On Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network airings, the allegedly cleaner moments were toned down further, mostly via cutting a few scattered instances of mild language, to make it TV-G.

The original cut even received an ''R'' rating at first because of a single joke that referenced oral sex.

* {{Inversion}}: In the late [[TheSixties 1960s]] and early [[TheSeventies 1970s]], many films that would certainly get a PG or PG-13 today were rated G. Examples include the gory Film/HammerHorror film ''Film/{{Dracula}} Has Risen from the Grave''[[note]] the very first film to receive an MPAA rating[[/note]], the first ''Film/{{Airport}}'' movie, the aforementioned ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes1968'', and Franchise/TheMonkees' psychedelic CultClassic ''Film/{{Head}}''. One of these films, ''Film/TheAndromedaStrain'', even carried this [[ContentWarnings content warning]] on the original poster: "Rated G but may be too intense for younger children." However, since the MPAA rating system had just been created, the G rating didn't have the "kids only" stigma yet; it still meant "for ''general'' audiences".
