Help keep ACCM's movie and app reviews services free
We would like to hear what you think of our KBYG movie reviews. Please fill in our short survey.
The Know Before You Go Movie Review Service provides descriptions of the content of movies, highlighting areas which may be of concern to parents.
Reviewers with child development expertise review all G and PG movies as soon as possible after their release in Australia. Selected M movies which are likely to appeal to younger audiences are also reviewed. Our database also includes reviews of “golden oldies” now available on streaming services.
Remember, as a parent or carer you know your child best and it is up to you to make decisions as to what is appropriate for the children in your care. The information in these reviews is provided to help you find age appropriate and enjoyable movies suitable for your child. (Read our full Disclaimer)
If a movie you are looking for is currently unavailable on this website, the Netherlands Classification website (in English) is also an age-based system. The British Film Classification Board and US Commonsense Media website could also be useful.
It is important to note that the American, Netherlands and British classification systems differ from the Australian classification system. Always check for the Australian classification on streaming services, on DVDs and videos, or look up the classification yourself on the Australian Government Classification Board online database.
