Give Me a Break: MPAA Rating

I just bought “Nine” last night, and I looked while driving and looking at the back of the DVD, I looked at the rating and saw it was PG-13.  I can see that, it is pretty heavy on sexual enuendo.  Want to know what else it’s rated PG-13 for?  Smoking.  It literally says “Smoking”.

As a smoker, I had a prompt reaction, I sat in my living room, lit six candles and had three air neutralizer cans ready, watched “Nine” and smoked a half a pack of cigarettes.

I am a little befuddled, I was actually hoping to sue Rob Marshall, Mirimax, Daniel Day-Lewis and the MPAA when I get lung cancer.  But since it specifically says “Smoking” on the back of the box, I guess I can’t.

Give me a fucking break!

  1. It made it sexy, is what it did.

    People seriously underestimate either their children or their ability to raise their children if they think we all are gonna start smoking if we see DDL do it.
