Movie 43 Gets Another MPAA-Rating and is Censored

Scenes Involving Drug Use Were Removed

The comedy Movie 43 is a film made out of several episodic segments that all include many well-known actors. Previous clips and trailers already hinted that they don't shy away from making crude jokes and so the "R" rating didn't come as a surprise for the finished film. Normally, that would be the end of the story. However, not in this case.

As the MPAA bulletin 4/2013 shows, the film was re-submitted to the MPAA in a different version. This also got an "R" but the difference can be found in the rating description.

1. rating: Rated R for strong pervasive crude and sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity, language, some violence and drug use.

2. rating: Rated R for strong pervasive crude and sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity, language and some violence.

Obviously, scenes containing drug use were removed. The reason for that is unclear since it can be doubted that conservative Americans are now more likely to watch a movie with nudity or language on "R" level. Still, it's not the first time that something like this happened and it seems that some film companies see a benefit in that.
