Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Bruno' dodges NC-17 rating

Posted on

Brüno, the upcoming summer comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen, has received an R rating from the MPAA, Universal Studios announced. Last month, an earlier cut of the film—in which Borat creator Baron Cohen plays a gay Austrian fashion reporter who travels across America—was tagged with a more restrictive NC-17 rating, but upon viewing a new edit of the film, the ratings board gave it an R for “pervasive strong and crude sexual content, graphic nudity and language.” Brüno will be released on July 10.
