The Heat - German Rating Indicates More Violence

Unrated Cut Gets 16 Rating While Theatrical was 12

Normally, everything concerning The Heat is already covered. The buddy cop comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy was shown in cinemas with the "R" rating and still managed to earn enough money in order to satisfy the producing studio, which gave the green light for a sequel. But the revenue doesn't have to dry up after the film left theaters and therefore, the home video releases will contain an Unrated Cut.

Oftentimes, the brandword "unrated" suggests that there is stuff that's too much for the original version but just as often that's just clever advertising paired with naive hopes raised by the customers. Especially with The Heat, we didn't expect real extensions that would live up to the promises, since director Paul Feig proved previously with Bridesmaids that he just added more story to the film's unrated version. However, it seems like The Heat could prove us wrong.

The German ratings board FSK classified the theatrical cut as being suitable for people being 12 years and over. The Unrated Cut received a "16" instead. Since Germany doesn't have that many problems with nudity and sexual dialogues, the elevated rating could well indicate that the Unrated Cut offers additions in the violence department.

We'll make sure to check up on that with a report shortly after the Blu-ray hits the US market on October 15th, 2013. You can order it at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.
