Kevin Smith gets his R rating

August 06, 2008|From the Associated Press

Filmmaker Kevin Smith has won an appeal to gain an R rating for his comedy "Zack and Miri Make a Porno," which previously had received an NC-17 adults-only designation.

Elizabeth Kaltman, spokeswoman for the Motion Picture Assn. of America, said Tuesday the rating was revised after the MPAA's appeals board viewed the movie.

The NC-17 rating would have prohibited anyone younger than 17 from seeing the movie. With an R rating, those under 17 can see it in the company of an adult.

"Zack and Miri," due out Oct. 31 from the Weinstein Co., stars Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks as roommates who try to make a homemade porn flick to dig themselves out of debt.
