Watched It's Complicated with Alec Guinness and Meryl Streep. And Steve Martin, the first movie in which I really liked the character he played. It's rated R, what the fuck? No profanity, no nudity (unless you count Guiness's fat ass), no sex, nothing even remotely resembling violence. Supposedly got an R rating for showing them smoking a doobie, but my conspiratorialist side says it's more likely because the movie explored some adult situations where people had to make moral decisions. That's dangerous, you can't have young people dealing with that stuff. Blood, gore, cussing, nudity, even some sex? Fine, sure, put PG-13 on it. But having to decide what is right and wrong? That's radical shit.
