"Year One" will be a kid-friendly movie after all as it is given the PG-13 rating. The lowering of the rating by the MPAA's Classification and Rating Appeals Board from a restricted one to a PG-13 came after some of the cuts were made to the forthcoming comedy movie starring Jack Black and Michael Cera.
Previously, on Tuesday, April 7, producer Judd Apatow and director Harold Ramis were reported to have made an appeal to the board. At the time, the two argued for a more lenient rating, but the appeals board still opted for the R, which requires moviegoers younger than 17 be accompanied by an adult, because of "some sexual content and language."
From the producer of "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express", Judd Apatow, comes "Year One", a biblical comedy about a couple of lazy hunter-gatherers who upon being banished from their primitive village, go on an epic journey through the ancient world. Starring Jack Black and Michael Cera, it is supported by Olivia Wilde, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria and many else. It will be available in U.S. theaters on June 19.
