"The King's Speech" Gets PG-13 Rating

Posted: February 26th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The KingSubmit Comment
The Weinstein Company is happy to announce that the Classification and Rating Administration (CARA) and the MPAA have given the new version of "The King's Speech" a PG-13 rating. The original version was rated 'R' for some language.

The PG-13 film will be the same exact movie, except that the fifteen uses of the F-word will be muted out. And while the Weinstein Company would love to release it in theaters immediately, the rule states that there has to be 90 days between the two versions to avoid public confusion.

"The King's Speech" has already grossed $237 million on a $15 million budget. The studio is planning to unleash a brand new marketing campaign to promote the PG-13 version.

I reckon "The Social Network" will win it, don't think "Inception" will win as Nolan isn't up for best director.


On subject, ok news I guess, but as it is doing well in US without the rating change, why change it?

Saw this movie the other day. Outside the acting categories, I don't understand why so many nominations. Really boring film with no sense of tension what so ever. Firth and Rush both shines, but two actors doesn't make it "best of the year".

Now all those teenieboppers that have been dying to get to watch a couple laborious hours of a British dude getting schooled in English mixed in with bouts of public speaking (which I hear is the number one fear out there today) can watch with clear skies! Thanks Harvey, for allowing this huge chunk of your demographic to be able to enjoy this, which I'm sure was your plan all along.

Seriously tho- If this "new" version even does remotely well with the PG-13 movie, please drown me and hang me in the square to dry.

I want to puke. Grow the f*ck up and give us the version the director (cast and crew) spent so much time and effort creating.

Will they also mute all of Elizabeth's lines too?

Muting just brings more attention to the actual words; it's completely pointless and only takes you out of the movie. And by the time they do re-release the PG-13 version, I'm sure people would much rather just wait for the "Uncut" DVD to come out. Another FAIL for the Weinsteins.

This just in: 100% of teenagers said they would never watch this movie for any other reason than because the word f*ck was in it. And even with the word f*ck in it they ssay they still will most like never watch it.

Those cursing scenes will lose their comic relief. They're reducing the film to a cheap product. Similar to how corporations maximize the bottom dollar by creating inferior products that don't last instead of treating their product, and customers, with respect.

Most kids that would want to see this movie already have heard the f-word multiple times. Get real.
