Reese Witherspoon comedy ‘How Do You Know’ set to reduce R-rating
HollywoodNews.com: Don’t worry teenagers, you’ll still be able to see the new Reese Witherspoon romantic comedy “How Do You Know.”
According to Variety, the film, due out on December 17, was given an R-rating by the Classification and Ratings Appeal Board. Apparently, the word “fuck” is used four times and for a film to receive a PG-13 rating, it can only be uttered once.
James L. Brooks directed the movie and Columbia Pictures will recut the film so that it can nab a PG-13 rating and reach a wider audience.
In addition to Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson star.
Brooks’ last movie “Spanglish” starring Adam Sandler failed to generate waves at the box office and among Oscar voters. The film cost $80 million and made $55 million worldwide.
