Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Bruno' dodges NC-17 rating

Brüno, the upcoming summer comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen, has received an R rating from the MPAA, Universal Studios announced. Last month, an earlier cut of the film—in which Borat creator Baron Cohen plays a gay Austrian fashion reporter who travels across America—was tagged with a more restrictive NC-17 rating, but upon viewing a new edit of the film, the ratings board gave it an R for "pervasive strong and crude sexual content, graphic nudity and language." Brüno will be released on July 10.

    I’m sure there will be an “unrated director’s cut” on DVD/Blue-ray that will include all of the naughty bits the MPAA didn’t like.

    I wonder if the “objectionable” sex scenes before are heterosexual scenes or homosexual scenes? And I wonder if that affected what rating they got? I am assuming that you can be more explicit with heterosexual scenes than you can be with homosexual ones.

    New rating systems are needed (for movies and television) – who are the people behind the current movie rating system anyway?
