Kevin Smith's Latest Movie Gets a Really Dumb Rating

Kevin Smith’s next movie, Yoga Hosers, probably won’t be very good. It stars his daughter (Harley Quinn Smith) and Johnny Depp’s daughter (Lily-Rose Melody Depp), and it takes place in the same universe as Tusk, which was not very good and which no one saw.

The film, however, was written with tweens in mind (Kevin Smith calls it a cross between Gremlins and Clueless). It’s a bloodless horror movie, and Smith even managed to avoid excessive use of profanity. Nevertheless, the MPAA slapped the film with an R-Rating.

Why? Because of this:

That’s a pair of testicles drawn on a fictional book being held up by a silly character played by Johnny Depp (yes, that’s Johnny Depp).

Kevin Smith is appealing the MPAA ruling, “so that [he] can keep the graffiti drawing of nuts on a fictional library book in my goofy girl-power monster movie.”

He shouldn’t have to appeal. It should not be an R-Rated movie based on a pair of nuts, lest I remind you that The Dark Knight was PG-13. Sucker Punch was PG-13. Taken was PG-13. Anchorman was PG-13. I’m not disputing the rating of those films; I’m merely suggesting that those films were more R-Rated than a pair of graffiti testicles in a tweener movie. I’m pretty sure if a kid can stomach a man getting a pencil jabbed through his eye socket, he can handle a hand-drawn pair of testicles.
