Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez have secured an R rating for Grindhouse after being forced to cut the 3 hour and 5 minute film to avoid an NC-17 rating. According to the Post,
…the Quentin Tarantino-Robert Rodriguez movie was in danger of getting an NC-17 tag, thanks to such scenes as one of a man’s being beheaded while his girlfriend performs a sex act on him. But the studio avoided the ultrarestrictive rating by shortening the gross-outs.
Thanks MPAA. Without your opinions on what’s acceptable to a society based on a few people, I might actually have to think for myself. And that’s bad. I already spend way too much brain power doing hard stuff like walking and talking. Sometimes simultaneously. Shock and horror, I know. I must be a GD genius or something.
