Reach Me - Stallone Drama Exists in Two Versions

PG-13 and R-Rated Cuts Differ by 7 Minutes

The drama Reach Me stuffs a lot of well-known actors in a story about a motivational book written by a mysterious author that thrills all those different characters and leads them all together somehow. Almost more interesting than this carpe diem plot is the story of how this film was made. With a budget of just $5 million quite cheap - especially considering the cast - a fiancer fell out and Kickstarter was used to get the desired $250k. But for whatever reason, that money wasn't cashed in and instead they went to Indiegogo to raise $50.000.

Just as obscure is the censorship situation. Initially slapped with an R-Rating in the US, the British BBFC rated this version with a 15 rating. But the producers then obviously changed their minds and wanted a PG-13 cut. After more than 7 minutes of removed footage, that goal was reached and this version was rated "12" by the BBFC.

Last week, the film obviously started in some US cinemas with the PG-13 rating but a runtime that seems much too long for that. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the 21 negative reviews currently give the film an awful 0%. For December 30th, 2014, the US also has a home video release lined up that lists the film with the "R" and a shorter runtime. Ah, well, we'll see what that is all about at a later date.

If you want to order it, you can do so at Amazon.com.
