We have decided to make our film 12A as younger children would not understand some of the content. We  have also chosen this certificate as the film applies to teenagers and is targeted towards them. However we have made it accessible to a younger audience as they will want to know what they can expect when they are teenagers. We have also made it accessible to all age groups as we feel families would want to go to the cinema together and watch this. Although we have classed our film 12A we still feel it is specifically  targeted to girls aged between thirteen and seventeen.

Universal- The universal certificate means anyone can watch the film. This will be because the film has very mild and light hearted content. Although the universal certificate means anyone can watch it is advised children under four shouldn't watch the film as the children are very unpredictable and it's impossible to know what will upset them.

PG (Parental Guidance)- Parental guidance is again open for anyone to watch however it is advised that any children who are sensitive to certain subjects or are very young should have a parent with them. These films are usually aimed at children eight years or older.

No-one under the age of 12 years of age may rent or buy a '12' rated video work.


12A- This certificate means only children aged twelve or older can watch this film without a parent there. However anyone accompanied by an adult can watch the film.

No-one younger than 15 may see a ‘15’ film in a cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a ‘15’ rated video work.

No-one younger than 18 may see a ‘18’ film in a cinema. No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy a ‘18’ rated video work
