Year One is "R"

04.08.2009

The MPAA has upheld the R rating that it gave to YEAR ONE in spite of an appeal from Judd Apatow and Harold Ramis. Apatow, the producer, and Ramis, the director, appeared appeared the board looking for a more lenient rating but they had no joy.

In the comedy, Jack Black and Michael Cera play two cavemen who are banished from their primitive village and set out on an adventure across the ancient world. David Cross and Olivia Wilde are also involved.

And my personal opinion is that this movie will be hilarious. Just so long as Ramis kept a hold on Jack Black. Seriously, I like the dude when he isn't going crazy and outrageous, but when he is it drives me insane. If I was his director my instructions to him, no matter what the film or the context, would be:

1. Calm the f-ck down.

BLACKER THAN CERA

This film looks hilarious. I like Cera, but let's face it. He's not 1/20th as funny as Black. I know it. You know it. The whole world knows it. And for those of you that say he is annoying, stop being pretentious a-holes!

i like both Michael Cera and Jack Black. but I'd have to say Cera just because he was fucking hysterical in Superbad and was in Arrested Development (aka the greatest show on earth).

Michael Cera is the greatest. From Arrested Development to everything he's been in. Jack Black on the other hand has always annoyed me.

The MPAA btw seems like a bunch of big douches and reasons for r is sometimes ridicolous. Glad to see that year one is a bit crude though.

I definitely prefer Jack Black. Cera annoys the shit out of me. I cannot stand him. But even though I find Jack Black pretty funny, this movie looks plain horrible. It doesnt look the least bit funny to me. I miss his Saving Silverman and Orange County days.

. . . except maybe the Arrested Development movie, for continuity sake and for the opportunity to see the entire cast together again, but I agree about Cera. Is none of the above an option?

Seriously? C'mon James? I know that Black isn't all that great, but Cera is as useless a actor as they come. The guy shouldn't be in any movies.

"In spite" or "despite"?
Did the MPAA give them the rating just because they were Apatow and Ramis?

Once upon a time I might've said it's a tie, but Jack Black all the way now. Cera's gotten just a little too big for his own good. Surprising cuz aside from being in "Superbad" and having his name attached to the "Arrested Development" cast he hasn't really achieved anything except whining like a little bitch on camera. Oh, and getting the starring role in Edgar Wright's next film.

If their appealing it then I'm guessing their contractually obligated to produce a PG-13, so this shouldnt stick

anyone who loves the movies should watch a documentary entitled "This Film Is Not Yet Rated". It explores how the MPAA has an effect on American culture and also reveals who sat on the ratings and appeals board as of 2006. They turned out to be in their 40's-60's. Some movie execs and theatre owners. Even members of the clergy! Anyways, this movie looks ok. Yeh Jack Black can go over the top sometimes and Michael Cera was really pissing me off with the whole Arrested Development hold-out,

I'm looking forward to Paul Rudd and David Cross in this one.

This seems like a goofy PG-13 comedy from the promotions but if there is chance that Black and Cera oversees Olivia Wilde bathing in in some prehistoric hot springs, I am ALL for the change.

Definitely prefer Jack Black over Michael Cera. Michael Cera just annoys me now; his schtick got old really fast.

And Apatow tried to appeal for a PG-13? Isn't he ALL about the R-rated comedy?

R rating?

R rating for a Jack Black comedy=Dead in the water. All the under 17 are outta luck-unless a note from a parent and or w/ someone 17 an up.(that's how it is in our city's theaters with "R and NC-17" ratings...no dice for the majority of film goers at least around here 12-16 crowd,according to theater employees I've talked with.
