Movie Hype
New Releases, Oscar-Winners and Obscure Movies!
a question by Apr 4, 2011
"The King's Speech" was originally rated R when it came out in theaters; which I thought was rather silly for the MPAA to base it on profanity that a child would've heard in real life anyway. Last week I heard that the Bluray/Dvd release will be rated PG-13. Does this mean the MPAA wised up or did they edit the profanity out? If so this would be sillier and would affect the film's narrative significantly.

Profanity in a movie should not put it above PG-13. There is too much graphic violence in PG-13 movies that I would rather cause a stricter rating. The only time profanity should effect the movie if it is used non-stop throughout the movie.

PG-13 movies are only allowed to have two profanities. The original release of "The King's Speech" has five. The newly edited PG-13 cuts out three of them. my source: http://www.avclub.com/articles/update-harvey...is-pg13-cut-of-t,52425/

An "R" rating usually looks better for an Oscar Nom and Win.

I heard it was PG-13 and it was going to be edited out but, that could easily be wrong. I agree though, the movie was completely clean for the most part, and the language is only used to prove a point. The film deserved nothing more than a PG-13 rating.
