UPDATE: Ukraine bans Bruno
Readers ask: How in the Helsinki did Bruno, which includes extreme close-ups of man-parts and prolonged sequences of sex and simulated sex, receive an R rating, which makes it available to those 17 and older? My kneejerk response: That the Motion Picture Association of America generally designates a rating that would most financially benefit its signatories, the studios. (This also explains why the new Harry Potter, which has the threat of violence and terror one would think was PG-13, was rated PG.)
In the UK, Bruno was circumcised by nearly two minutes in order to win the 15 rating that would allow teenagers to see it. (Read link to see what was snipped.) To see the uncut version in the UK, you have to be 18.
