Is it a sin to watch O rated movies?

Is it a sin to watch a movie that has been rated O (Morally Offensive) by the USCCB?

Movie ratings are not a teaching of the Church or Bishops, it is someone or some group’s prudential judgment. As such, others could reasonably disagree. Those ratings exist as a general help for families and individuals to decide which movies may or may not be appropriate.
