In Australia we have a slightly different rating system:

G - General Exhibition.
PG - Parental Guidence Recommended.
M - Mature Audience (PG under 15 yo).
MA - Restricted to 15 yo and over.
R - Restricted to 18 yo and over.

So far, the Indy movies have all been just PG. (Sorry about the "ratings sermon", but I thought there might be some people out there who wanted to learn something new).

: I don't think anyone wants to see Indy IV with an R rating. R denotes language, sex, and extreme violence, the first two of which are hardly seen in the Indy movies. Although nowadays we can have two "f***"s in a movie and still rank a PG-13. Anyway, if they keep the violence to the other movies' levels, where we just see punches and (cool!) stunts and more punches, minimal blood, a few gunshots, they'll be OK. Language doesn't need to go past "godd***" or even "s***". No sex; hints, OK, but no barechested ladies or stuff. In fact, if they can deliver a kick-ass PG movie, that equals/outdoes (can it be outdone?) Raiders, they'll have accomplished something rare. Realistically, it'll probably be PG-13.
