The Weinstein Company said today it has won its appeal with the MPAA to give the latest Kevin Smith comedy an R rating. The Motion Picture Association of America originally gave Zack and Miri Make A Porno an NC-17 rating but reversed its decision after the appeals board reviewed the film a second time. This its the 3rd time that the director has won an appeal case with the MPAA, including Clerks and Jersey Girl. His latest pic, which opens wide October 31st, is now rated R for “strong crude sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity and pervasive language”. Said Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company. “Somewhere up there George Carlin is smiling today.”
