Misnomer

NC17 is a misnomer. i was managing movie theatres when the first NC17 movie hit theatres. it was huge news (which drew people to the theatre) with the media calling NC17 the replacement for X rated movies. They are totally NOT the same thing. that film (henry&june) was tame by today's TV standards (you see more on FX at 10pm). X rated was about graphic sex but NC17 was meant for Nobody Under 17 admitted. That doesn't make it porn, just for mature audiences. The MPAA needs a complete overhaul.
