Does PG Mean Anything Anymore?


[theme music] Hello, I’m the Nostalgia Critic.
I remember it so you don’t have to. “Gremlins”! “Jaws”! “Beetlejuice”! “Watership Down”! “Raiders of the Lost Ark”! [hesitant]
“Frozen”, “Inside Out”, “Kung-Fu Panda”, “The Lego Movie”, “Mr. Magoo”… What do all these movies have in common? They’re all, strangely enough, rated PG. At least, that’s what the always logical
Motion Picture Association of America says. For those who somehow don’t know,
America has five ratings for films: “G”, for General Audiences of all ages; “PG”, for Parental Guidance suggested; “PG-13”, for some material might be inappropriate for children under 13; “R” for Restricted- anyone under 17 needs an adult; and “NC-17” for you must be 17 to watch. It doesn’t sound like a bad system, except when you ask the question: “How is this… [screaming] … in the same league as this?” “Hello, did I wake you?” “Do you have to play that?” “Well, I have to practice.” Or, the bigger question: “Why is this movie that
obviously doesn’t need parental guidance suggesting it, when it seems identical to another movie that doesn’t suggest it?” They’re even made by the same company. Well, to best understand, it’s probably best to look at
the history of the rating system. You see, years ago, there was really just only three ratings: G, PG, and R. And everything else was just porn. But, if you had one of these ratings, you’re not porn, and you can be shown in the majority of theaters. That mostly made sense; one was acceptable for most people, one might be a little iffy for some, and one was clearly just for adults. Because of this, the ratings were a little bit more relaxed than you may think of them today. Films like “Planet of the Apes”, “The Haunting”, and “True Grit” are all movies that no one in their right mind would’ve called G nowadays. With several swear words, off-screen violence, on-screen violence, tons of deaths,
and some pretty dark intense situations. But the idea back then was people knew there’d be some risk going in. As in, you can’t shield everything from everyone. That didn’t always make the ratings right. Hell, all three of these films can have
some very disturbing scenes in them. But they seemed ethically sound and not overkill. Everybody of every age wants entertainment, after all, and they knew there had to be some intense moments to keep you engaged. That’s just the kind of gamble you take when you see a film, even if it is rated G. But as movies went on, the envelope was pushed more and more. And some movies weren’t really extreme enough
for an R, but PG didn’t seem to cover it either. When “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” came out, they didn’t know where to place it. It was certainly more than a PG, but not too much more than “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, which was also pushing the PG rating. Thus, the PG-13 was born, a compromise that seemed to fit in between the two. The upside is the loopholes for this rating allowed, in many respects, much more violence for our blood-hungry 13-year-old minds to take in. Resulting in, funny enough, even more violence than a lot of R rated films. The downside is for years, this is
all people wanted to make. You see, because of this rating, there was suddenly more of a distinction between G and PG. G was now seen as not really general audiences anymore, but kids. And eventually, when you saw that rating you would think: “Oh, a kids only movie”. PG suddenly could buckle down a little bit more. And let things that could fly, in say, “Planet of the Apes”, “The Haunting”, and so forth suddenly not fly now. Because of this, the G rating was now
being stigmatized as baby movies. Which hey, we’re grown adults and 10 to 16-year-olds who want to be grown adults. We don’t want to watch that crap!
G movies suck now! A lot of kids hated them so much
we started marketing R-rated movies as toys. “Terminator’s back to fight evil
with his mobile assault vehicle!” “… talking and electronic RoboCop,
in three action packed sizes.” It was… a little messed up. Cool, but a little messed up. This meant, obviously, not as many people wanted to see them. Because of this, what were obviously G-rated movies started throwing in one or two elements that are completely pointless, but help get that PG rating. They do this to show: “Hey! There’s something in this movie you’re not supposed to see, And that makes it a little risqué, right?” Remember the out of nowhere swear words in “Casper” or “Iron Giant”? “The bitch is back!” How about the mountain of
awkward adult jokes in Dr. Seuss movies. “Dirty hoe!” Yeah, thank God your parents are there to help you understand those totally childish moments
parading as adult moments. Clearly, this was made for people with a more mature mind. What they missed though is that
a lot of the great films are G-rated. And actually got away with a lot more
by being clever and, dare I say it, necessary. Disney was the reigning champion of that for years. For decades, and decades they produced nothing but G-rated material. By turning their limitations into their advantage, they gave us some of the most messed up stuff. A lot of it was dark, nightmarish and intense, but not always in the way that would get a PG-rating. Because they had to find new avenues that people wouldn’t think of if they had the luxury of a PG movie. Films like “Bambi” or “Lion King” have intense scenes of family members getting killed. Hell, sometimes you even see the body! But because they worked in that this is a part of life that’s important and worth understanding, it can still count as a G film. Perception is everything. That all changed in 1979 though, when Disney released its first PG film “The Black Hole”. It sucked! So they opened a new studio where they could get away with more PG material called Touchstone. It seemed to work for a while, but PG eventually did work its way into dominating Disney films once again, and even finally moved out into PG-13 with “Pirates of the Caribbean”. And while I like that film fine, it does raise the question: “How far away are they getting from Disney’s original plan, entertainment that anyone
could and should be allowed to see?” Is there an R-rated film in the future? More importantly: Is it even needed? I remember much more great and disturbing imagery from “Hunchback of Notre Dame” or “Snow White” than anything in “Lone Ranger” or the other “Pirate” films. So what’s even the point of trying to get the higher rating? There was, however, a point when G film were becoming popular again, and that was with the invention of Pixar Studios. They started off making “Toy Story”,
a smash hit G-rated film. For a long time every Pixar film was G.
And every movie was trying to be just like them. The adult-talking childlike characters
with celebrity voices that talk about children’s scenarios and make them intelligent and adult, all without having to resort to
the gimmick of the PG rating. Then the little hit came along, called “Shrek”, and it showed that a PG animated kids’ film can be a little naughtier than Pixar. Suddenly, “Shrek” was the movie
everyone wanted to try and be like, even though Pixar was doing fine
with its G-rated storylines. But then something terrible
started to happen to Pixar… … they started to suck. Not suck hard, but… hard enough. And as a lot of suits in Hollywood usually think: “It must be because they’re not hip enough.” Yeah, let’s throw a P in front of that G
for… I don’t know, innuendo? Some scary imagery? W-what’s that line in “Frozen” no kid would get? “Foot size?”
“Foot size doesn’t matter!” Yeah! Throw that in there to get
the PG rating that shows that we’re edgy! Thus, the G movie practically feels extinct again. Even though most parents don’t even bother watching a Pixar or Disney film with their kid. At least, not for “parental guidance”. It feels like they just put it on there
so if you want to complain about something stupid, they could just point and say,
“well, there’s the PG warning,” resulting in unneeded adult scenes
that only last a second to prove that a movie is somehow “naughty” or “edgy”
when really it’s nothing of the sort. Sometimes, it can even work in the other direction. Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” has
eyes stabbed and plucked out, heads floating in water
with people climbing on them, and even a pretty graphic decapitation scene. It only got a PG rating when this is borderline R! “Dark Knight” wanted to get that
ever-marketable PG-13 rating, so they cut corners by showing nobody drinking, very few swear words, and little to no sex. Which balanced out all the shit-ton of
super-intense violence, and even gory imagery. In fact, movies like “Hunger Games” and other PG-13 films actually have more violence in them
than most R-rated movies now. But as long as they don’t show too much blood or say a curse word, it’s okay to see children slaughtered? This is no surprise though, as the rating system for some time has been incredibly inconsistent and… what’s the word I’m looking for?
Insane! For example, the F-word could be used once in PG movies for years. You’ll notice them snuck into films
like “Spaceballs” and “Beetlejuice” that got a PG rating. Now this changed recently to PG-13,
and it has to be used when not talking about sex. So… when Wolverine drops the F-bomb in two “X-Men” movies putting complete and total attention on it, but if he said it one more time
or used it talking about sex… only the 17-year-old mind can understand that! “South Park” made a great mockery
of a similar rule, declaring that if over 400 swear words
are used in your film, it’ll get an NC-17 rating, which most theaters won’t play. How many did they use? Three hundred and ninety-nine. Insert slow clap here. Thank God they didn’t use that one more swear, or else that would’ve been too much! Oh, by the way, it’s totally okay that you show a gigantic clitoris and make that part of the story, but if they said one more swear word
that would’ve been too far! Actually, a lot of things involving sex
in the rating system don’t make any sense. Now don’t get me wrong, I think sex should be taught at the right time and very delicately. But by age thirteen, I think most kids have an understanding of what it is, as well as the responsibilities that come with it. Hey, I’m not saying they practice those responsibilities, but they know what they are. Yet the number of times you show people humping can make the difference between an R and an NC-17; things like three humps will get it an R,
but four would get an NC-17. Why? Nudity is something that has to be blocked out a lot, even though you can say the F-word once and show children getting slaughtered
and faces getting burned up. But God help you if there’s a nipple in there! Something… everybody has. On top of that, the way the ratings are
done are bizarre too. If you check out the movie appropriately titled
“This Film Is Not Yet Rated”, they go into the details about
how you can’t see the people who are rating it. Nor know their identity. Nor reference past films that got a different rating, even if your film does the exact same thing. All of that is bonkers. Bottom line: the rating system has been and continues to be incredibly outdated, and even kind of meaningless. In this age of the Internet, where any information can be found at any time, children, teens and adults are learning
more and faster than they ever have in the past. The rating system needs to reflect that. Now don’t get me wrong:
I know it’s all subjective. One kid can watch the G-rated “Snow White” and be fine, another can watch it and get nightmares. It’s never going to be a perfect system,
nor should it be. It’s art, it should be subjective. But the ratings should reflect our current environment,
and be more consistent. Why is “Drag Me To Hell”,
an over-the-top gore fest, PG-13, but “Love Is Strange”, where a gay couple kiss, rated R? Yeah, there’s nothing else in this movie except a gay couple kissing and sleeping in bed. Totally clothed! That was deemed more inappropriate than this! It makes no sense in our current environment. I guess it’s easy to say things have either gotten too inconsiderate, or things have gotten too PC, but the fact is: they’re both right. None of it makes any sense from any angle. It’s a different world now, and the rating system is changing, but… not in a way that reflects it. I know these aren’t law, and a lot of younger people can still sneak into R-rated films and such, and I also know there’ll always
be loopholes and everything, but if the idea is to help guide people to what will culturally be accepted to the mass public, this current system doesn’t really do that. This should be G, this should be R,
and both should be glad that they’re a G and an R! The secret to cinematic success isn’t the rating, it’s making a good film. “Toy Story” was a hit despite it being
a G-rated kids’ film; “Deadpool” was a hit despite it being
an R-rated superhero flick. How did they do that? What was the secret? They were good! Changes need to happen on both sides: we need a system that makes more sense, and we need studios that can stand by their movies, not their ratings. Because if someone is honestly gonna tell me a parent should be present when watching “Mr. Magoo”? I think everybody’s trust needs to be
brought into focus. Because that should obviously be an NC-17, it shouldn’t be shown anywhere. I’m the Nostalgia Critic.
I remember it so you don’t have to. [theme music] Hey, Doug Walker here,
doing the charity shout-out. This week we’re doing
the Children’s Defense Fund. Their “leave no child behind” mission is to ensure every child a healthy, fair, safe, and moral start in life. And successful passage to adulthood,

  • A perfect example of how poor the rating system is, is the movie Eighth Grade directed by Bo Burnham. The movie is rated R, because real life is rated R for 8th graders! Specific kids in her class say the F word a few times, and the main character says them to to fit in. Another scene the main character searches on YouTube how to perform a blow job so she can impress a guy she likes, even though sexual favors go against the character's "virgin" personality.

    The movie is basically realistic diary of a wimpy kid.

  • The rating system is basically a nudity meter.
    PG = Nothing
    PG13 = Ass
    R = Whatever tf they want to show

  • Even though Australian rating classifications seem more tolerant than the US ratings classification, inside out is still rated PG. one website from Australia says that the minor violence may concern children aged 5-8 but no concern for children aged 9-13. Maybe the US and Australia should have an in between rating in between G and PG for those aged 5-8 who might be scared of minor violence. A rating for children beyond preschoolers but before being tweenagers. Also I like that Australia has the guts to call PG13 M for mature audience and have an MA 15+ instead of R17+ in the US. Also why in the US is it called NC18+ not R18+ like in Australia

  • For Ireland it's:

    G: general audience.
    PG: parental guidance.
    12A: anyone under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
    15A: anyone under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
    16: must be 16 or older.
    18: must be 18 or older.

  • y’all remember that one scene from shrek when lord farquad is like, ‘hey guys, kill the ogre and you can go on the quest thingy’, right?
    ok. When one of the knights starts running towards him you can faintly hear someone yell faggot in the background

  • It should just be up to the parent. Read the reviews, and decide what your kid can deal with. When I was a kid, I could deal with violence and some language, but the sex and strong language was too much. For other kids it was vice versa.

  • The lego movie and Coraline are the same rating, what is life ?

  • Airplane is PG lol

  • Toy Story 4
    • has a suicidal Spork
    • two plushie toys beats up an old lady and stalk her into her house in night while she's sleeping.
    •some adult joke that sounded like an innocent joke.
    •and reference of drugs use
    RATED- G

  • What it should be:

    Current/milder G and mild PG: (Toy Story, The Grinch, etc) G
    Some older/darker G, “harder” PG and mild PG-13: (Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Spider-Verse, Endgame, etc) PG
    80’s PG, Normal PG-13, Soft R: (Gremlins, The Dark Knight, The King’s Speech, etc) PG-13
    Hard PG-13, Normal R: (Taken, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, etc) PG-15
    Hard R: (Midsommar) R

  • when i rate stuff in my head
    i rate them with europe's PEGI
    simple and straight to the point: the name of the rating IS the mininum age reccomended
    3
    7
    12
    16
    18
    there's more 18 games in europe than there are AO games in USA
    and anyway, an AO rating kills your game before release!
    we aren't wusses

  • i have a movie idea in my head where the PG rating might actually be justified BECAUSE:
    the main character goes on a quest to find his twin brother
    he meets his sidekick in prison as a travelling criminal and busts them out
    they travel to georgia where one of the bad guy's allies baits them into taking LSD thru sweets, but it backfires because the drug-infused characters annoy him
    they get abducted by the bad guy's UFO and get dropped off in Ireland
    they have to beat a giant robot by going into it's head and pulling out wires, probably generating seizure flashes of electric
    then when they finally get to the bad guy's lair, the bad guy captures our main character and KILLS THEM with their main weakness
    our main's twin shows up and is so angry he KILLS ALL THE BAD GUYS in the movie! ALL!!!
    the twin absorbs the main's brain to carry on as the new main character
    the sidekick is safe and they both travel home back into england

    well, that's at least a rough script

  • Movie that were rated G in the 80's and 90's would get a PG rating today.

  • In England, our primary schools aren't allowed to show and PG rated movies unless they have permission from every parent.

  • JAWS IS RATED R YOU FRACK

  • Some PG rated movies are rerated to PG-13. Grease for example.

  • I didn’t know people even gave a shit about ratings.

  • 👁👄👁

  • Nowadays to reach r rating just show nudity and swear words

  • 5:59 He predicted that Disney would be making Deadpool movies

  • I remember watching the movie airplane with my friend and sisters and we were planning to watch it at my parents house. Note that we are well over the age of 13, me and my sister and friend are over 18 while the youngest sister is 16. So yeah, we thought of watching it at their house since my sister's still live there but got settled with watching it at his house. We saw nudity and a blow job and we laughed our asses off and were relived that we didn't to to my parents. "PG EVERY ONE! PG!" is what my friend said while laughing. We don't even know why it wasn't R rated since you know, nudeincy, like full on nudincy. My sisters saw their first boob that isn't theirs lmfao

  • Where I am we have
    G
    PG
    PG -13
    M
    MA
    And R

  • In Australia it is similar but slightly different:
    G: general audience
    PG: parental guidance (mild violence)
    M: mature (violence/mild swears)
    MA15+: must be over 15 restricted (swearing/violent/minor nudity)
    R18+: must be over 18 restricted

  • The rating systems are waky and always have been. Temple of Doom forced the system to create the pg13 rating.

  • Hunger games a lovely pg-13 movie about 11-18 year olds fighting to the death 😁

  • Homosexuality was never cool or edgy. Shouldn't be rated R.

  • I remember in high school (which was only 7 years when I graduated) we had PG-13 cuts for most R rated movies that were safe for school viewings (some were rated PG-13 anyway)

  • Nostalgia poop

  • T2 could be pg13

  • I’m sorry, did he call shrek an anime?

  • Am I the only one who enjoyed Black Hole?

  • On my church youth trip to Arizona we were only allowed PG-13 movies so we watched Harry Potter and the hunger games. Idk what kind of drugs the pastor's we're on

  • watch this video get demonetized

  • Pg= probably garbage

  • You forgot airplane at pg

  • I thought is meant porn guaranteed..

  • Honestly, I feel like the matrix is one of those movies that didn't really deserve an r rating. I could see it perfectly as pg-13, but r is kinda pushing it.

  • Toy Story was a PG when it first came out in the UK

  • This Film Is Not Yet Rated is really interesting and makes me glad I live somewhere with transparency in ratings and a sensible system

  • leave the rating system alone you flaming shit!!!

  • Did you seriously just insult The muppet christmas carol?! I am not amused 🙁

  • Why do you even bother with NC-17 see any movies with that lady there never in theaters and if some words are most likely not rated when they're in theaters and then rated once they leave theaters

  • It was good until Harry Potter and the prisoner of azkaban came out

  • Honestly my dad doesnt even care about me watching like r-rated movies. When a sex scene came up I cover my eyes and someone else covers my ears whens the scene is over, I uncover my ears and eyes and proceed to watch.

  • The breakfast club was G or Maybe Pg but you might say there was no pg 13 but that's r there's like 10 f words!

  • Episode 549 of why is this in my recommended after it was released years ago

  • Watership Down was rated U because there was no PG in Britain in 1978

  • But the charts say PG = more money!

  • Here, it's

    G = Young Child
    PG = Child – Teen
    M = Teen
    MA = Older teen to adult.
    R = Adult.
    X = FOKING PAWN!

  • South park was actually rated 12 in finland

  • The look at childrens faces when they change from PG to 13 can clearly say enough

  • The old movies are rated PG because they were before PG-13, today they would be PG-13

  • Couldn’t they just give the rating system 2 parts?
    The first part would be:
    U (for universal), for everyone
    +6
    +13
    +16
    (Maybe more ages, but those seem to me like the most important)
    And the second part would be
    (Nothing)
    V (for violence)
    S (for scary imagery)
    C (for cursing)
    And maybe D for death
    A few more are probably needed, but this way you could easily see how good a movie is to watch.
    (Multiple lettres could be used per movie, like +6CS for a film where you have to be at least 6 years old, which contains swearing and scary images)

  • In 3rd grade a friend brought in wreck it Ralph to watch on a movie day, but because it was PG we weren’t allowed to watch it

    Hmmmmmmm…,..,,,,

  • The MPAA rating system is broken. There were PG-rated movies in the 1980s that had content you couldn't put in a PG-13 nowadays. G-rated movies are a thing of the past, unless it's Toy Story, because Toy Story 3 definitely should have been rated PG-13.

  • 12:10 ¡Viva la República!

  • Did you just say cars sucks

  • In Australia we have
    G all people aka baby shows and kid shows
    PG parental guidance recommended for under 13
    M recommended for mature audiences
    MA 15 restricted don’t know if it is actually in the law as i has MA before i was 15
    R same deal as MA except its 18+

  • Wait so you mean that big ass logo at the end of Disney movies actually fucking means something

  • UK Ratings

    G
    PG
    12
    15
    18

  • To be honest I've just completely started to think that ratings are pointless. A 13 year old seeing something is pretty much the same thing as a 12 year old seeing it. 16 and 17 year olds seeing r rated movies are the same pretty much. The only differences are the numbers in the ages and some are more "mature" than others

  • Parent: you can only watch G And PG movies because there for kids

    This is how most parents are. But what they don’t know is that kids are smart.
    They think all children are stupid so they make stupid movies that are nothing but COLORFULL! and kid friendly! We’re everyone gets along and there is little to no plot because, KIDS are stupid. Which is why most kids like PG-13 and R rated movies because they are actually good with plots and entertaining scenes instead of friendship, rainbows and fart jokes.

    Sincerely,
    King conniebonnie

  • 1:00 I'd create a new rating for this: the B rating, movies that are only meant for babies and will only annoy kids.

  • Pixar only made Cars 3 and Toy Story 4, a 2017 and 2019 film, rated G only because the other movies of the own franchise are rated G.

  • 4:25 When I hear annoyingly loud feminine screams outside my front door

  • Not gonna lie I watched horror movies since I was like 6 and it really doesn’t affect me cos my parents know that shit don’t scare me so when a movie rated 18 fro example comes out and I can’t go and see it that really annoys me

  • The ratings should be
    G
    Pg
    12
    14 and that’s it

  • Bruh "most kids at 13 know what sex is," most kids at 13 regular Jack it

  • my sister used to watch the oogieloves when she was really little on netflix

  • What about NR? That's a rating, literally

  • To be fair inside out deals with childhood depression

  • I honestly don’t understand why the rating “PG – 13” was made because PG made sense Parental Guidance

    Think about it 1975 Jaws, Bloody, some use of cuss words, and other stuff.

    Now if we talk about 2019 Jaws would probably get an R or PG – 13 rating but there was no need for PG – 13 because PG made sense a parent with you

    But that is MY way of thinking about I’m sure other people have different opinions

  • My sister said my 2 year old niece could only watch G rated films, so, I asked her if Ben-Hur since it was G rated was alright.

  • Wth every 13 year old kid can handle hunger games

  • Foodfight should have gotten an NC17

  • I think some episodes of Voltron Legendary Defender should have been rated TV-14.

  • In Finnland the rating goes:
    S=all audiences
    7=over 7 year olds
    12=over 12 year olds
    16=over 16 year olds
    18=adults only
    You can be 3 years younger than the rating if accompanied by an adult exept with 18.

  • Yes the renting system is an mess. My local library has had over 100,000,000 parents yelling at them fur having movies with blood, geaur, flow mouth, electrocution, body parts being ripped out, and more in the kids area. That was there because they are G and PG. So far the best they got was to get thing's like the Super Mario Bros and Power Rangers Movies moved out of that area; but movies like The live action Alvin and the Chipmunks are still there even though parents what it moved out of their.

  • PG and G should be combined into G and PG 13 should become PG. PG nowadays are literally any kid/tween film or show while G is for babies/toddlers/little kids. Then PG 13 are mainly teen films/shows and contains some language and violence. R is for young adults, maybe includes some sexual scenes, extreme violence, language frequently, etc. Then MC 17 will blind your eyes and deafen your ears, probably includes a combination of all the elements to their extremes.

  • Teacher: you have to bring a PG movie
    Me: brings BeatleJuice

  • Here's how I would change the ratings
    EC (Early Childhood) – children between ages 0-2 can enjoy this (Baby Einstein DVDs and other baby DVDs) – no swearing, no blood, no violence, no nudity, etc.
    K (Kids) – children between ages 3-6 can enjoy this (basically G and PG nowadays) – no swearing, no blood, little violence (cartoony violence), no nudity, etc.
    PG (Parental Guidance) – children between ages 7-11 can enjoy this (basically PG films back in the 80s) – little swearing, little blood, minor violence, no nudity, etc.
    A (Advisory) – children between ages 12-15 can enjoy this (basically PG-13) – mild swearing, mild blood (w/ little gore), mild violence, little nudity, etc.
    M (Mature) – young adults 16 & 17 can enjoy this (basically R films) – strong swearing, strong blood (w/ mild gore), strong violence, strong nudity (w/ little pornography), etc.
    R (Restricted) – young adults 18-20 can enjoy this (also basically R films) – strong swearing, strong blood (w/ strong gore), strong nudity (w/ mild pornography), etc.
    X – adults 21 and older can enjoy this (basically NC-17) – strong swearing, strong blood (w/ strong gore), strong nudity (w/ strong pornography), etc.

  • Back then there was no PG-13 I wonder how that must’ve been

  • I know some Kindergartners who have watched Deadpool. What has this world become.

  • Someday, I hope to create a proper film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz and if it ever happens, I'll be genuinely curious to see what rating it ultimately gets because if all you're familiar with is the 1939 film, some of the stuff from the book might seem kind of shocking, like a scene where the Witch Of The West sends a pack of wolves to kill Dorothy and they get cut down by the Tin Man's axe. Depending on how that scene is portrayed in the film, would that be PG or PG13?

It's Fucking Hi-Larious—About how Eddie was hurt—Rejected by someone he loved—On a Reality TV show called LOVERS LANE—And There's subtext here—Cause after this he makes a "Killer Reality Show." 2 Get back at the people who wanted him out of the spotlight—-(Which is why Eddie Furlong is A character name not The Actors—-And well the rest writes itself—So well in fact that We made many movies with this similiar idea—NOT because we wanted 2 make Cash Grabs $$$ But—(And again I know it's a hard concept—-But they were good!
