An R in America means that under 17's require an adult.

This can be translated as a British 15 or 18depending on how the British Board of Film Classificationwant to classify it.

example Orphan in America is R rated in the UK it is 15 rated

R rated in the UK is 15

America's NC-17 in the UK is 18

hope that helps

i don't know why they bother in this day and age 15 rated or 18 rated are not just being watched by 15 and 18 year olds under 15's and 18's seem to watch these type of films
