“Hating Breitbart” Slapped With ‘R’ Rating – Delaying Release Date

Producers with “Hating Breitbart” announced this weekend that the film was slapped with an ‘R’ rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. That means the film will likely be delayed a week while the producers and his team approach the MPAA with a request for a re-hearing.

The Daily Caller reported:

Producers of the biographical documentary “Hating Breitbart” got news last week that their film received an “R” rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. And with that move official Hollywood, long the preserve of liberal culture warriors, has had what appears to be the last laugh on the late Andrew Breitbart.

A converted conservative whose political apostasy pleased his admirers but rankled the power structure in his native Los Angeles, Breitbart was never at a loss for words. And some of those words were decidedly profane. Andrew Marcus, the director of “Hating Breitbart,” which was scheduled for release on Oct. 12, told The Daily Caller on Sunday that the film’s nationwide unveiling has been pushed back one week while he and his team approach the MPAA with a request for a re-hearing. That decision, he said, was made over the weekend.

Foul language, he told TheDC, was the only rationale the MPAA gave for reaching its rating decision.

I’ll make sure to keep you posted on developments.

    Andrew is surely missed.

  • Elderstatesman

    He is missed, but not forgotten. Even in death, Andrew sticks in their craw. I AM BREITBART ! !

  • Grandma Perkins

    Potty mouth.

  • dwillmore

    I bet it is much much worse than what I hear on TV nightly during prime time and all of the pg rated shows on TV. If you would change God to be Allah in these movies Hollywood would be nuked.

    Uh hoh come on…

    It all depends on what you consider “foul language” or profanity; Obamacare, wealth redistrubution, green investments and and fair share are foul language. Profanity best describes the number of dead and wounded US military that are forced to fight a war that can’t be won.

  • jpmn

    The rating is probably correct. Remember it is about how liberals talk about those they dislike.

  • Larkin

    Foul language doth not an “R” rating make.

    This is about liberal censorship…period.

  • Joe College

    They fear him in death as in life.

  • Limousine Barry

    Why are you looking at me?

    You think that I had my Hollywood Cronies scuttle your film just to win the election?

    How could you think that!

    Just because every foul mouthed rap movie gets a free pass doesn’t mean that my Hollywood Cronies are giving you the pole!

    Or are they?

  • bigL

    doesn’t Chris Dodd head up MPAA? yes tha chris dodd

  • Joe College

    Banana republic here. This is a disgrace. It is so transparently political that nobody could mistake it for anything but tyranny. Imagine if Bush has done such a thing. It would have gone into the history books. This is as clear a picture as anyone needs of how things will be if he gets reelected.

  • Joe College

    And very very sorry about all your hard work, Jim!

  • listingstarboard

    But Joe Biden can say “Big Fu**ing Deal ” .

  • AmericaWILL

    What a bunch of cowards. Man up and let the world see how you really feel about being tolerant of another’s opinion.

    The producers should upload it to the net for viewing. Bypass the liberals altogether.

    This (mis)rating is not a surprise, the MPAA is funded by the studios. Any content not produced by the studios nor approved by the liberal agenda is going to get rated such so that it gets very little play in theaters. Theaters live and die by the MPAA ratings since that also drives a lot of family related business.

    Perversely this MPAA rating might make “Hating Breitbart” more palatable to politically unawares young voters (20s-30s) for the simple fact that R rated movies draw a larger number of that demographic than PG and PG-13 movies. Young movie goers watch many more first-run movies than any other demographic.

  • FurryGuy

    Oh the hypocrisy, “Hating Breitbart” gets delayed but the NatGeo “special” gets the Full Monty treatment fanfare release. Yeah, there’s no politics in Hollyweird. :roll eyes:

  • From the MPAA website:

    PG (Parental Guidance) – some profanity and some depictions of violence or brief nudity

    PG-13 (Parents Strongly Cautioned) – may go beyond the PG rating in theme, violence, nudity, sensuality, language, adult activities or other elements, but does not reach the restricted R category

    R (Restricted) – adult themes, adult activity, hard language, intense or persistent violence, sexually-oriented nudity, drug abuse or other elements

    The ratings are so arbitrary, they could actually apply any rating. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I have seen a lot of #Occupy videos. The funny thing is, what is apparently inappropriate for children to see in the movie was okay during the actual protests. Protesters had children present (they made good shields against the police) but now that same leftist thinking suddenly decides its inappropriate.

  • MicahStone

    R = restricted = what the lunatic-left does with everything that isn’t their extremist leftist ideology. It’s just part of their “free speech for me,” but “not for thee” campaign.

  • MT Geoff

    The MPAA ratings have a strongly arbitrary character. Harrison Ford starred in a liberal-ish Air Force One which got an R rating despite all clothes on and only one use of the duck word that I recall. Titanic got a PG-13 in spite of one heck of an eyeful of Rose posing for Jack.
    If Mr. Breitbart was fond of rough language, and others were fond of it when talking about him, the rating may well be fair. Language was the basis for Al Pacino’s Scarface getting an R, although the violence was also considered.
    The MPAA rating may be “voluntary” but many theaters will only screen a movie that has the rating, and many will screen only those from R on down.

  • Whistleblower

    Help spread this story, it is a problem for Obama and his pals.

    As Obama’s cover story comes down, the curtain goes up on the USAO’s cover-up of J.J., Jr.’s role in the Blago story


  • Secret Squirrel

    Release the movie as is, I will watch it. R rated or not, who cares, i am in the 20 – 39 bracket and I sure as hell won’t turn away from that.

    Release it at R, then protest the rating.

  • thebronze

    And “R” rating makes more money anyway.
