So The Hangover 2‘s Trailer Offended The MPAA, But Not The Dilemma‘s?

Warner Bros. yanked its trailer for The Hangover 2 from theaters because the fourth graders at the Motion Picture Association Of America, which holds sway over the ratings of all trailers and films, got pissed. And no, not because Bradley Cooper’s character is paging another Dr. Faggot, but because it was too raunchy.

(A trailer for the movie, which is rated R, appeared before screenings of the PG-13 The Source Code; the MPAA didn’t give permission.)

So what was the problem? A scene where the monkey puts its mouth on the man’s fake erection? Whatever.

Just note that while the MPAA has a problem with trailers that adult men doing stupid things while drunk, it does not have a problem with trailers for PG-13 films where sober adult men make “that’s so gay” jokes. (The Dilemma‘s revised trailer, sans “so gay” line, was put out not because of the MPAA’s involvement, but from the negative publicity.)

    I like that you’re surprised or find it newsworthy that the MPAA overreacted.

    The MPAA is so corrupt it’s not even funny. Check out “This Film Is Not Yet Rated” for a good bit of info on them.

    The MPAA has a lot of explaining to do. The basically find it ok that somebody can tear off another person’s arm and beat them with it, but a nip slip, or a lingering gay look gets censored.

    I think it’s amazing that horrific violence, which most people will never see in their real lives ever is deemed normal, but sex, with pretty much every single person watching the movie has had, or will have is deemed shocking.
