Barely Lethal

  • Movie

Teenagers can actually see the teen action comedy Barely Lethal in theaters, now that it’s overturned its original R rating.

On Thursday, the Classification and Rating Appeals Board changed the R rating given to the movie for sexual material and teen drinking. EW can confirm that the film now has a PG-13 rating for sexual material, teen drinking, language, drug references and some action violence.

​Barely Lethal, which stars Hailee Steinfeld, Samuel L. Jackson and Jessica Alba, follows a 16-year-old trained assassin’s attempt to run away from her job and live a normal life by attending high school. Naturally, she finds it very difficult to fit in.

In February, DirecTV and A24 Film acquired the U.S. rights to the film and though no official date has been set, they are said to have planned an April release to both DirecTV and in select theaters.
