Cameron Diaz Movie Wins a PG-13 Rating in AppealBy: Mike Fossum - April 10, 2014
The Classification and Ratings Administration (CARA) of the Motion Picture Association of America has just granted the new Cameron Diaz romantic comedy The Other Woman a PG-13 rating. The film was originally labelled as R-rated for sexual content, but the 20th Century Fox-produced movie was given a more teen-friendly rating during a hearing on Thursday. No cuts to The Other Woman were necessary.
Diaz was on hand at the rating appeals inquest in Los Angeles on Thursday, along with 20th Century Fox president of production Emma Watts. CARA’s Classification and Rating Appeals Board chairman Joan Graves represented the ratings board, and the PG-13 designation came just in time for the April 25th release of The Other Woman.
Since the late 1990’s, the MPAA has recognized the following film ratings:
G – General Audiences: All ages admitted. This movie contains nothing that would offend parents for viewing by children. Such films may contain only mild violence or crude humor, and may have no nudity, sex, drugs or coarse (as distinct from impolite) language.
PG – Parental Guidance Suggested: Some material may not be suitable for children. Parents are urged to give parental guidance as the motion picture contains some material that parents might not find suitable for their pre-teenagers.
PG-13 – Parents Strongly Cautioned: Parents are urged to be cautious as the motion picture contains some material that parents might consider inappropriate for children under 13 years.
R – Restricted: People under 17 years may only be admitted if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
NC-17 – Adults Only: This film is exclusively adult and people under 18 are not admitted.
Alongside Diaz, the Nick Cassavetes-directed The Other Woman stars Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Kinney. The plot concerns three women uniting to exact revenge on a philandering man they had all been involved with.
