Weinstein Washes Out ‘King’s’ Whore Mouth

Friday, February 25 by

What Harvey wants, Harvey gets.

The King’s Speech is expected to clean up this Sunday at the Oscars and in turn, Harvey Weinstein would like the film to clean up at the box office. A PG-13 version of the film will be hitting theaters soon to draw in the tweens. They just looooove Colin Firth.

The film is pretty clean overall save for one scene where Firth issues a frustrated, expletive-filled outburst that would make Kurt Sutter blush. In this re-edit, that has gone bye-bye against the wishes of director Tom Hooper. Next thing you know, they won’t let him cast Andrew “Dice” Clay in his adaptation of Les Miserables. (THR)

    Seems like as good a place as any to post the guidelines for the whole ratings system. http://www.filmratings.com/filmRatings_Cara/downloads/pdf/ratings/cara_rating_rules.pdf

    While many people may view these members as Nazi fascist censors to some extent, they actually seem pretty reasonable in their approach and their ability to recognize that they are here to explain content to parents, rather than suggest it, like the PTC.
