    Movie Mayhem

    Q: Why couldn’t the little boy go see the pirate movie?

    A: Because it was rated “Arr!”
    Hello!

    Q1: movie mayhem = movie featured with violence?
    Q2: What does " it was rated " Arr" mean? A shriek because of being frightened?

    Thanks!

    1)overdone vilonce in many movies

    2)Hard to do without sound -
    There are "Pirate Days" in many American cities. People try to 'talk like a pirate' and often begin sentences by growling "Arr" as in "ARR, that be my ship." The joke is because the "arr" sounds the same as the letter "R" which is amovie rating that means "Restricted" no one under 16 allowed.
