The MPAA softens the rating of Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers

Kevin Smith has long been saying that he intended for his "CLUELESS meets GREMLINS" creature feature YOGA HOSERS to get a PG-13 rating. Despite this, I wasn't too surprised when I found out that the film had received an R. After all, its Gremlins-esque tiny terrors are "Bratzis", foot tall Canadian Nazis made of sentient bratwurst that force their way up people's asses. What was surprising was that the R wasn't for the rectal breaching Bratzis, but for a cartoony drawing of testicles. As reported last week, Smith was preparing to appeal the MPAA's decision, and the board was scheduled to have a second screening of the film today.

That appeals screening is not happening. Last night, Smith took to his social media accounts to share the news that the MPAA took in a second screening of YOGA HOSERS ahead of schedule and they agree with the writer/director: YOGA HOSERS is a PG-13 film.

The PG-13 rating now secured with no cuts, Smith can move forward with his plan to take the film out on tour in June and July, with the wider release expected to follow after the San Diego Comic-Con (which will be held July 21 - 24).

A spin-off from TUSK and the second chapter in Smith's True North Trilogy, YOGA HOSERS stars Harley Quinn Smith, Lily Rose Depp, and Johnny Depp, reprising their TUSK roles, in the story of 

15-year-old yoga nuts Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie, who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. When an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the Colleens join forces with a legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe to fight for their lives with all seven chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time.

Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey, Kevin Conroy, Stan Lee, Jason Mewes, Jennifer Schwalbach, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, and Harley Morenstein also star.
