*R*NO

by Jeremy Hooper

Baron-CohenIn a preliminary move leading up to the film's planned July release, the Motion Picture Association of America has eschewed the R rating and instead given Sacha Baron Cohen's gay-themed "Bruno" movie the dreaded NC-17:

A Universal spokesman confirmed the rating on Sunday, saying: "On its first submission the film did not receive an R but it is far too early to say that there is any struggle to get there as the process is only at its inception.”

According to reports, a simulated dude-on-dude sex scene is among the objectionable points that earned the pre-release rating. So we'll have to wait until the film is released to (a) see if the two boys are cut, or (b) see if the two boys are cut or uncut.

Your thoughts

The MPAA has always been homophobic like this. I wonder if they would respond the same way if it was simulated 'dude-on-chick' sex...oh wait! They give that a PG-13 rating!

Why does the movie even go with an MPAA rating. Can't it be release as not rated, but it may limit it's distribution. There's always the director's cut DVD.
