MPAA Ratings Change Analysis

On May 10, 2007, the Motion Picture Association of America announced smoking was to be included as a factor when rating films G, PG, PG-13, and R, in addition to previous factors such as violence, language, and sexual content.  Following this announcement, there have been several major statements from Attorneys General, Congresspersons, movie studios, and major health organizations.  The MPAA Ratings Change Analysis is a document for tobacco control professionals and advocates only, to provide a summary of all the recent news, possible next steps, and sample talking points.
