LOS ANGELES, California - Parents are supposed to make sure the movies their children see are age appropriate, but a new study says the ratings system may not be helping. When you think James Bond, you probably aren't thinking PG13, but that's what "Skyfall" was rated. A new study by the Annenberg Public Policy Center shows there's almost no difference in the sex, violence and alcohol in the most popular PG13 movies and R-rated films. Study authors worry some teens will imitate what they see on screen.
