Bruno slapped with an NC-17

It’ll need to be chopped a little…

Whoops… Looks like some of Sacha Baron Cohen’s antics are a little too risqué for the notoriously staid MPAA across the pond: Bruno is rated NC-17.

The rating – which means many UA cinemas won’t carry the movie – is generally acknowledged to be a kiss of death for any movie.

But don’t expect that situation to stay for long. Universal is already planning to edit the film down to a more tolerable R rating, just as happened with Borat (below).

So what made the US ratings board froth and seethe? Seems it’s “a number of sexual sequences”.

Unrated DVD action ahoy!

      The film wont be cut unless it has material deemed to be illegal or dangerous to the viewers. Should be released in its full glory :)

      I take that back, it appears that Universal admitted a re-cut of the film for final release with just over a minute missing although this was not at the request of the BBFC
