Red Dawn

On August 10, 1984, the action thriller Red Dawn, starring Patrick Swayze, opens in theaters as the first movie to be released with a PG-13 rating. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), which oversees the movie rating system, had announced the new PG-13 category in July of that same year.

"Inspired by" meaning they were the reason that there was a PG-13 rating to give to Red Dawn.

That was the first one, yeah.

But the reason they came up with the rating was supposedly all the complaints they got about Gremlins and Temple of Doom.
