Yup, exactly. And it depends on the rating (PG-13 covers a lot of ground), as well as which kid is watching it - mine are 9, 12, 14. There's the occasional violence that is fine for the 12yo but would traumatize the others, scary things only the 9yo likes, and only the 14yo wants to see kissing.
Occasionally I'll take them to a movie opening (Harry Potter), and I'll just trust. This week the oldest is going with me to see the last Twilight movie, and I'm hoping nothing will upset her.
