Kevin Smithin ongelmana siniset pallit – Katso kuva Johnny Deppin esittelemistä kiveksistä

Kevin Smithin tuleva, nuorille suunnattu komedia Yoga Hosers on päätynyt jenkkitarkastajien hieman liian tiukkaan syyniin. MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) jakaa ikärajasuosituksia elokuville, ja K13-elokuvaksi suunniteltu Yoga Hosers on tällä menolla saamassa lapsilta kokonaan kielletyn R-leiman.

Smith avautuu asiasta Instagramissa: ”MPAA antoi lastenelokuvalleni R-luokituksen, koska siinä on piirretyt kivekset erään kirjan kannessa. Joten nyt, neljättä kertaa 22-vuotisen urani aikana, joudumme pitämään valitusnäytöksen MPAA:lle, jotta saisimme ikärajan laskettua soveliaammaksi.”

Jos Suomen lakisäädökset tuntuvat välillä tiukoilta, niin tämä taitaa kyllä mennä kaikesta yli. Nuorten elokuvaan ollaan lätkäisemässä K16-leima pelkästään piirrettyjen kivesten takia. Alla kuva kohupalleista.

The #MPAA gave my kids movie @YogaHosers an R rating for a cartoony drawing of testicles on a book cover. So now, for the 4th time in my 22 year career, we will hold an appeals screening with the Motion Picture Association of America's ratings board and try to get the R overturned for a less severe (and far more appropriate) PG-13. I also ran afoul of the MPAA the first time I made a movie set in a convenience store, when they initially slapped Clerks with an NC-17 rating for language. Back then, Harvey Weinstein hired mega-lawyer Alan Dershowitz and turned our rating appeal into a Free Speech case. But on the day of the actual appeals screening, it was just me and the Miramax lawyer getting up in front of the appeals folks to argue for a less restrictive rating without having to change or trim any shots. We won that day and Clerks received the R rating without a single cut. The next two occasions I fought an MPAA rating was on Jersey Girl (won a PG-13 instead of the R they gave us) and Zack and Miri Make a Porno (which went from an NC-17 to an R, without cuts). I don't mind doing this dance with the MPAA a fourth time (hey – at least they even OFFER an appeals screening) but this #YogaHosers R rating is riDONKulous. The core audience for the flick is tween girls (it's Clueless meets Gremlins!), so I refrained from salty language to make a totally kid-friendly movie. And while it's a "horror" movie, there's no blood on display: when our Bratzi bad guys get killed, concentrated sauerkraut explodes everywhere – not guts or entrails. Honestly, this movie is TAME (or "lame" according to some reviews). Even so, next week I'll screen the flick for the MPAA appeals audience and, lawyer-like, plead my case for why the film is really PG-13 – all so that I can keep the graffiti drawing of nuts on a fictional library book in my goofy girl-power monster movie. Weird life. Mind you, this is NOT a First Amendment issue at all; instead, it's the very definition of a First World Problem. But before I can tour the movie in June & July and release it in theaters this August, I'm gonna have to win #TheBattleForTheBalls! #KevinSmith #harleyquinnsmith #lilyrosedepp #johnnydepp
