Unrated movies are bad (violence, bad language, sex) not rated could mean the same or they just haven’t rated it but most not rated are like disney movies? They can have different meanings, Just read the description of the movie.

Unrated—there is also a version that has a rating.

Not Rated—was never submitted or was given a rating by the MPAA that producers did not approve of, and producers chose to release the film without rating.

@Lothloriengaladriel the vast majority of Disney movies are rated G, not ‘not rated’.

@Lothloriengaladriel: Whoa, hostility. I don’t think @MrItty meant anything personal by it. You are right, some of the Disney straight-to-DVD movies are not rated, but so are a lot of documentaries, made for TV movies, and educational/informational films that were never in theatres.
