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!
