Terry Crews has more to say on EX2 and that PG-13 rating - he is fired up!!

01.27.2012by: Marcey Papandrea

Remind me that if I come across Terry Crews to never look at him with anything other than a smile, this dude is one heck of a badass. The man is fired up over the fan reaction to THE EXPENDABLES 2 being rated PG-13, he isn’t happy about it and he sure as hell wants us all to know about it!

"It's PG-13. Do you really think only men 40 and over saw the first one? The kids bought tickets to "Eat Pray Love" and walked right into "The Expendables". In fact, they were YOUR kids."

"I get it. I really do. But boobs and blood do not a good movie make. You don't want to go. Don't go. I respect it. But you will miss the greatest thing you've ever seen."

LETTER TO AN EX2 BOYCOTTER: "Sorry we lost you. But hey, when you come out of the 80's, the rest of the world will still be here. On the last one, kids had to sneak into the theater to see it. Now it'll be all you tough guys who are vowing to boycott number 2. See ya in the theater. (Your disguise isn't working)."

Well I am not sure where Terry got his info from, but I don’t think anyone really paid to see EAT, PRAY, LOVE so not sure where that came from. I know when I saw the film; there wasn’t a kid in sight and everyone looked to be at least 20 and over. So basically I think the real story behind this rating is that they clearly want to broaden the audience and perhaps make more money. I could be wrong, but to be honest, this is how it is really reading and not a decision made to fit in with the demands of one cast member.

What do you think is really going on behind the rating? Do you agree/disagree with Crews? Spit some bullets below!

Extra Tidbit: I still want to see this film, but I definitely don't feel as strongly as I did before.

I think his reaction is basically one of being upset that people are bad mouthing a movie that hasn't even come out yet, and that we haven't even seen a full trailer for yet. On that note I agree with him. I think we all need to trust Stallone, and wait for a full trailer.

Terry Crews is awesome

I was an extra on the set of Idiocracy and Crews was one of the most approachable and gregarious members of the cast. His reaction is great (even if you may not necessary agree with the subject).

I was gonna go on a big rant but who cares? Bored talking about it. They ain't getting my money despite what Terry arrogantly states above.

While I agree that the quality of a film is not determined by its rating, the fact remains that a film neutered to achieve that rating is just that: a movie with a scar where it's balls should be. What scares me about this news is the reasons why the movie will be PG-13, not that it is.

Amen to all the below comments. He really hasn't done his arguement any favours. So should every movie be made PG-13 Mr Crews? So the kids won't need to sneak in or wait for DVD. Big whoop. Your still taking away from what those kids were sneaking in to see, and what the fans and audience for this type of movie are looking for. I honestly hope it's not that bad, but I do hope theres an unrated cut up their sleeves.
Maybe this is even a stab at publicity before they "miraculously" turn about

Maybe this is even a stab at publicity before they "miraculously" turn about and go R rated for the fans. One can dream......

There are already enough kid friendly movies out there. How about making an action movie for adults for a change?
My parents were always liberal about what movies I watched so I grew on R rated movies. Parents should be the ones that ultimately dictate what their kids see. The filmmakers shouldnt be worried about catering to the masses. They should be worried about pleasing fans of the original who want a hard R action movie like in the 80s. Haven't the movie studios learned with Terminator

Haven't the movie studios learned with Terminator and Die Hard that it really pisses fans of the series off when they take a franchise that started off as a R rated and then condensed down to PG13.

Disagree

Kids shouldn't even watch this type of movie anyway.

He didn't do his case any favors. Basically, he's saying that they're making the movie for kids.
