Notes/Trivia:
  • The MPAA gave the original cut of This Film Is Not Yet Rated an NC-17 rating for "some graphic sexual content" – ironically, scenes that illustrated the content a film could include to garner an NC-17 rating. Director Kirby Dick appealed the rating, and the ratings deliberations and appeal were included in the final version of the documentary, which is itself not rated.
  • Among the issues in the rating system examined in the film is the discrepancies in the ratings applied between films with homosexual and heterosexual content and between films containing male and female nudity.
