Chief Censor Bill Hastings today criticized New Zealand film distributors and exhibitors for not supplying G-rated movies for the school holidays.
“Where are the G movies?” asked Mr Hastings.
“School holidays present the perfect opportunity for relatively inexpensive family outings,” said Mr Hastings, “yet the cinemas are not showing any G movies that the whole family can enjoy.”
“In New Zealand, a G rating is every parent’s last sanctuary” said Mr Hastings. “There should be nothing in a G-rated film that would cause anyone concern,” he said.
“In these tough economic times, I would have thought the New Zealand film industry would be trying to reverse declining ticket sales by offering films that the whole family could enjoy,” said Mr Hastings.
