What, exactly, does a movie have to do to get an "R" rating these days?

    The trailer to the remake (yeah, that's what Hollywood needs, more remakes) of "The Stepfather."

    Seriously. I saw this on TV and figured it was a hard R. It's PG-13. What do you have to do to get an R? Make torture porn?

    I would guess "nudity" but I suspect somebody could disprove that hypothesis.

    On a similar topic, I'm not sure I realized basic cable FCC regulations became so relaxed late at night. I was watching Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny the other not on, I think, Comedy Central and there were lots of shits and a few fucks. I don't really care, but I don't remember noticing it before.

    About 1 a.m. late Saturday going into Sunday?

    That's when they drop the bleeps.

    That said, I don't think the FCC boobies/bad words rules apply to cable.

    Was it Saturday night? I think Comedy Central airs uncensored flicks and concert specials late every Saturday night (like 11 pm-3 am or something).

    Edit: Sumbitch. 2mcm beat me to it!

    The FCC doesn't cover cable. Which makes me wonder why ESPN bleeps stuff picked up on NASCAR radios and football field mikes.

    Though most of the dirtyness on cable is aired in the evening hours.

    Nowadays, you see nudity on cable television past 10 p.m. (i.e. Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, etc.)

    Obviously, it's not full nudity, but still.

    Across the Universe had nekkid boobies. Still had a PG13 rating.
