Wrong Rating Shown

How do we report a movie that shows the wrong rating? i.e. Top Gun says rated G and it is a PG movie.

Could you post the URL of the page which displays the film's rating as G? This may be a display issue. 

Top Gun (1986) - Main Page The US/MPAA PG rating is displayed. 
Top Gun (1986) - Parents Guide/Certification list

This is the correct info for Top Gun:

Canada: G (original rating, Alberta)

Canada: PG (2013, re-rating, Alberta) the Nunavut and the Northwest Territories uses the classification of Alberta, I don't know if those should be listed separately, but anyway Top Gun got re-rated in Alberta, Nunavut, and Northwest Territories.

Canada: G (Nova Scotia) the rating for the Maritimes are administrated by Nova Scotia, Merge???, I don't know at this point.

Canada: PG (British Columbia/Manitoba/Ontario/Saskatchewan) Saskatchewan uses the British Columbia classification and Ontario will use British Columbia's ratings temporarily. then the Yukon also uses British Columbia ratings. 

Canada: G (Quebec) Quebec has a completely different rating system and shall not be listed with the other G ratings.

PS: Newfoundland and Labrador doesn't maintain film/DVD classification

I have already added the 2013 re-rating in Albert. For the rest, I got "Badly Formatted", I'm gonna try again to submit those corrections. If someone has an idea of how it could be formatted pls let me know.

I don't know how IMDb wants to format those, but it is the correct information.

No, it is not. Look up the details for G rating in Canada (not just BC) and this is definitely not a movie for childrene to watch! I am not here to argue, I am just here to point out that it has been labeled wrong as G on the IMDB website.

I have proofs to support it:

Alberta: 

Nova Scotia:  I made a mistake, Top Gun doesn't seem to be rated in Nova Scotia.
I confused Top Gun (1955) with Top Gun (1986)

British Columbia:

Manitoba:


Quebec

You are not understanding. Yes, the link you sent for BC says it is rated PG for that province, but what I am saying is that when I go on IMDB in BC Canada, it says rated G as per my screenshot sent previously.

Okay... here is what I have found. On my PC the link (or search) shows it as PG rated but when I open in IMDB on my iPad it shows as G rated. What on earth is going on?

Hi Douglas -

Are you still experiencing the issue of the certificate displaying differently on your separate devices?  If so, an you clarify what rating you are seeing on what specific IMDb page/section on each device?
