But then we have movies like "Blow" getting a 14A rating and Freddy Got Fingered getting an R rating. Now, Freddy was not NC-17 in the states, but it got the R rating in Canada for the simple reason that Tom Green was in it. Blow had Drug Content, Nudity, Harsh Language, etc... Freddy had much less than that.
Not that I'm against the system at all, I like how it works... I just wish it could be a little more consistant.
Tidbit: A movie rated 'G' in Canada is allowed to have nudity in it as long as it is shown from a distance, and is not sexual in nature (ie: someone changing clothes.)
