in line

in line
for the r-rated movie
my daughter

In the US, the "r" rating means children under 18 not admitted unless accompanied by an adult.

Pure fiction otherwise. I've never had a daughter. I posted it as a comment at Gillena's blog. It's not about her daughter, either.

Thanks for the explaination. I didn't know this expression at all.

Thank you, Gillena. I'm a frequent visitor, as you know.

Thank you, Daniele. I don't know if there is any equivalent in France.

Ahhhhh, for the old days, when the 'parents' did the 'rating.' Smiles! _m

M, I have a friend, now well into her eighties, whose mother, back in 1934, wouldn't let her see "It Happened One Night" because it was a dirty movie.

We don't have an exact equivalent of that rating i don't think, we have 18 which means no-one under 18 can see it not even if they are accompanied. Then we have 12 - no one under 12 cansee it at all and 12A, under 12s can see it if accompanied by adult.

Juliet, I guess one system makes as much sense as the other.
