‘Don’t Think Twice’ Director Blasts MPAA Over ‘Suicide Squad’s’ PG-13 Rating


Filmmaker and comedian Mike Birbiglia doesn’t understand why the MPAA gave his new movie “Don’t Think Twice” an R-rating while allowing the violence-laden “Suicide Squad” a PG-13.

“Suicide Squad has machine gun killings and bombings and got a PG-13 rating. @Dontthinkmovie gets an R because adults smoke pot. Confusing?” Birbiglia said on Wednesday.

The story is too old to be commented.

Remember kids guns are good, sex and drugs are not.

Don't forget saying the "f word" one too many times.... Could blow someones head off, tone down the blood, and not say F--- and get a PG 13 rating. Say the F word and suddenly that scene is too adult oriented......

It used to be that G was for kids, PG meant Parental Guidance. PG movies: Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Airplane.

This film was rated 15 here in the UK.

Though i have noticed there are many films rated 15 in the UK and R in the USA, like Terminator, Total Recall etc.. over being rated an 18.
