Sometimes Good Things Can Happen

I spent a fair bit of time bemoaning the fact I couldn't see The King's Speech because of an R-rating due to a scene of repeated profanity ostensibly used to loosen the King up during therapy. Well, it turns out the powers that be re-edited it, muted the profanity, and resubmitted it for a new rating. Ta-da - The LA Times is saying the re-edit got a PG-13 rating and will be re-released soon. Good times. See you Colin Firth fans at the theater!

It's an incredible movie. Ratings are so arbitrary. Personally I couldn't care less about hearing the f-word a few times in completely appropriate context. Don't censure books - don't censure movies: my vote - go see it in the theatre before it jumps.

I hate hearing the f-word anytime. So glad they changed it!! And I saw it, you'd love it!
