Where to Invade Next gets Unwanted R-Rating
Michael Moore's new film Where to Invade Next currently makes the festival round and starts in US cinemas at the end of the year. But it needs some more publicity. So what better occurrence than making the MPAA rating the topic of discussion? In his film, Moore visits foreign countries and collects good ideas from economy, law and social systems that could be better in the US.
Moore now plans to appeal the MPPA rating and took to Twitter to vent about the issue and why he thinks the "R" is not appropriate:
What Moore ignores in all of this is that the film also got the "R" for language. How many uses of the f-word and other terms are present remains unclear, which makes it also hard to say whether those things he mentioned were really relevant for the "R" and not the fact that the language was the main issue. As we all know, 2-3 f-words are normally the downfall for the PG-13 rating in the US.
So is this a PR coup or a real scandal? It remains to be seen. Let's wait for the result of the appeal.
