Seven classified “A Christmas Story” (1983) tonight on 7flix as “G”.
Now, a few instances I’m questioning.
•“Son of a bitch” by the kid Ralphie.
•“Smartarse” by one of the kids.
•A promiscuous lamp shade.
•A prolonged fight between Ralphie and a bully, which resulted in many rather impactful punches to the face and clear blood trail on the bully’s face.
In particular the last point, I’d argue that certainly exceeds “very mild” in impact.
Many movies / programs are given “PG” with “Mild Violence” for exactly that.
Now, unless the Classification Board gave it “G” post the 1993 new system, than I’d say Seven haven’t really done their job by reviewing the content and just slapped it with a “G”.
Also, given its Christmas and the classification, many young children may have been watching, possibly without parental guidance as well.
