Brüno Now Straight Enough for an ‘R’


As you probably expected, Brüno, the upcoming gay-pranking Sacha Baron Cohen movie for which Universal paid $42.5 million, will not be released with an NC-17 rating. According to the studio's official Twitter feed, the MPAA reversed its earlier decision yesterday and gave the movie an R rating, which means either scenes were trimmed or the ratings board dramatically changed its standards in the past two weeks.
