You Only Have the Rest of March to See ‘The King’s Speech’

By  · Published on March 24th, 2011

The Weinstein Company has sent out a memo warning people that on April 1st, The King’s Speech will be replaced in theaters by The King’s Speech Lite, which might still taste great but will be less fulfilling.

They’ve gotten the PG-13 rating they wanted by making the necessary changes and bleeping out the right words, but that’s the only version that will see screens starting April 1st, so if you still haven’t seen it and still want to be treated like an adult, March is your last chance until the rental shelf.

On the flip side, if you’re a 15-year-old kid who’s been scratching your braces out to catch this Masterpiece Theater-style period piece, tear your Lady Gaga poster off the wall and replace it with a calendar featuring a giant red circle around the first day of April because that day is your V-Day.
