YMMV: This Film is Not Yet Rated

  • Fridge Horror: The chairman of the MPAA is one of the most powerful people in America, and answers only to the heads of the studios that make up the Association.
  • Nightmare Fuel/Squick: The film contains plenty of both, due to its disturbing clips from other movies. Notable examples include a screaming soldier with his guts hanging out from Saving Private Ryan, a puppet pooping on another puppet during a sex scene in Team America: World Police, and the infamous orgy scene, complete with masked cultists, from Eyes Wide Shut.
    • There's also the brief but very intense compilation of film scenes where women are raped and/or beaten up, which Kevin Smith states that he finds more offensive then depictions of consensual sex.
  • Values Dissonance: European ratings tend to be more permissive about sex and more restrictive about violence than American ratings, but are given no specific examples.
    • Outside of America, classification boards are usually administered by the government. Anything that doesn't fit in with the rating systems cannot be shown unless it's educational or sport-related. Incidentally, But I'm a Cheerleader got an M rating (equivalent to PG-13) in Australia, while American Beauty got an MA15+ (closer to the American R rating).
