Blue Valentine Loses the MPAA's NC-17 Rating, Now Rated R 2010-12-08 14:20:45

Blue Valentine Ditches Its NC-17 Rating

Well, it's about time! The MPAA has finally seen the error of its ways, and it's swapping Blue Valentine's NC-17 rating so that the film is now classified as R. Harvey Weinstein appealed to the board in a hearing earlier today, which resulted in a unanimous vote to switch the rating. After seeing the movie ourselves, we agreed that the NC-17 was unjustified. We're glad to see it overturned.

After seeing the documentary "this film is not yet rated," you begin to realize the ratings aren't any real barometer any way. The film makes the great point that according to the MPAA, it's perfectly OK to see people get dismembered and killed graphically and call it R, but if you show a consensual love scene between two adults (especially one focusing on a woman's pleasure), welcome to NC-17 land.

i'm actually happy to hear this and i'm sure that the folks involved in the movie are as well. i think that given what we've seen lately in movies - there was really no reason to give it such a taboo rating. i hope that it does well now though - especially with all the buzz that's been generated.
