ever vigilant

The USCCB uses a six-element classification of film ratings, ranging from A-1 (general patronage) at one end of the spectrum, to O (morally offensive) at the other. The rating L is explained as "limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling." Troubling how? To one's taste, conscience, digestive system? Maybe we're not meant to ask.

Check out the explanation offered for the L rating assigned the movie Loverboy in the USCCB review:

Promiscuity, some brief sexual encounters, artificial insemination, partial rear and upper female nudity, breastfeeding, some crude language, an act of animal cruelty, suicide, and murder attempt.

Well. I'm glad they warned us about the breastfeeding.
