Stick it.

Michael Moore and his distributors lost their appeal Tuesday to lower the R rating for "Fahrenheit 9/11," his scathing assault on President Bush's actions before and after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Lions Gate Films and IFC Films, the movie's distributors, said an appeals board for the Motion Picture Association of America rejected their request to reduce the rating to PG-13.

The R rating prohibits those 17 and younger from seeing "Fahrenheit 9/11" without an adult.

The movie, which won the top honor at last month's Cannes Film Festival, was rated R for "violent and disturbing images and for language." The movie's images include an Iraqi man tossing a dead baby into a truckload of bodies, Iraqis burned by napalm and a public beheading in Saudi Arabia.


Dude, that's so acceptable for 13 year olds to see! The MPAA is so obviously part of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (tm)!

Looks like BS

I suppose it would, to Bush supporters.

but as long as you're the proper age it doesn't matter to me

That's good *g*. Though most kids see a lot worse on tv and in the news these days. Too bad the MPAA can't do anything about that.

Or people who, ya know, like the truth. :D

Funny thing about the Motion Picture Association of America... they only have authority over motion pictures *g*

Problem is, no one actually knows what the truth is ;)

Well, that solved that problem *g*.

It's not anything that comes out of Moore's mouth ;) He's come out and says he made it to hurt Republicans, which makes it about as credible as a campaign ad. There's some good articles about it at Slate.

Well, that solved that problem *g*.

Glad I could help :-D
