beware of words!

district 9 write-up on imdb:

"rated R for bloody violence and pervasive language."

does this mean that language use should at most be sporadic, sprinkled judiciously here and there? that the excessive use of language will somehow corrupt our youth? are we returning to the silent film era? or a new wave of cinema mime?

would the film be rated PG if the violence was not bloody? what if there were no puncture wounds or eviscerations but merely a thorough 2 hour beating administered using a phone book? would that be ok? 

good to know i have an R-rated career, though.
