“Screenit.com was started after so many parents asked if certain movies would be okay for their children. As a parent, I was attending movies to study them for screenwriting purposes, and paid little attention to that issue. After checking around, however, I found that there wasn’t a way for parents to find out about the content in movies or videos (especially in an unbiased way), and that most didn’t trust the MPAA ratings (G, PG, etc…).” – Creator of Screenit.com
