Last week we didn’t report that the upcoming Judd Apatow produced, Harold Ramis directed comedy Year One was hit with an R-rating by the MPAA, who cited the film as having “some sexual content and language,” but apparently it was big news around the web. It has been alleged that the film also went through the appeals process, but to no avail, as the R-rating could not be overturned. Cut to this week when the filmmakers returned to the MPAA with a new cut of the film and that cut has earned a PG-13 rating. Now this is news…

The new PG-13 rating for “crude and sexual content throughout, brief strong language and comic violence.” And now, before you completely lose interest in this story, here’s the trailer for Year One, which looks like fun — R-rating or not.
