MPAA Caves to Bruno

Subtle, he ain't. Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie, Bruno, based on Chen's gay fashion TV reporter character, originally earned an NC-17 rating for "pervasive strong and crude sexual content, graphic nudity, and language" from the Motion Picture Association of America, the BBC reports. The producers then re-edited the footage and the new version successfully won an R rating. The deleted scenes will doubtless appear on the film's DVD release. Bruno reportedly features Cohen's trademark awkward interviews with the governator and Ben Affleck. According to Hollywood director Ruben Fleischer, the film "beyond delivered."
