NR 9no rating) is not technically worse than R, it just has no rating. Worse than R would be X or NC-17.

Worse than R is unrated

No... wrong again. NR is no rating, it is possible that the movie was not submitted to the MPAA for a rating, or it hasn't been decided on yet. NC-17 is worse than NR.

I think you are thinking of when movies claim to be "Unrated" such as "American Pie: the UNRATED edition." That is completely different.

Please view the MPAA site for my vindication: http://www.mpaa.org/ratings/what-each-rating-means

Not Rated, not necessarily worse than rated R, it usually just means that the movie hasn't been viewed by the MPAA. sometimes indie films or documentaries are rated NR.
