Many multicultural education classes include popular movies in their study material. Here were examined the age-classifications and their justifications for movies recommended by the American organization Teachers Against Prejudice (TAP) to be shown during high school multicultural classes, as assigned by the American, British, Australian movie advisory boards. Findings indicate that some of the movies chosen by TAP are deemed suitable only for adult moviegoers, most notably by the American and the British boards, and that these movies are loaded with profanity and violence.
