    Subject matter - does it deal with drugs, sex, nudity, violence, how disturbing it it, is there anything that can play on the audiences mind that can be too difficult for a young person to deal with - like suicide or bullying etc.

    Today if it shows a person smoking it gets an R-rating.

     Mostly today based on liberal agenda.

    They decide on the rating after the film is fully made and edited, then the board watches it and writes down everything that could be a ratings infraction, which sometimes includes really small things like mention of death, and decides the rating after looking over the list. This is well known because some horror movies have to make many edits where they cut away from certain acts of gruesome violence to be rated R instead of X.

    It's up to the producers and director.
