Team America Gets R-Rating

SOUTH PARK creators TREY PARKER and MATT STONE have managed to earn an R-rating on their movie TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE, after editing a sex scene and making other changes.

The $32 million (GBP17.8 million) puppet movie mocks celebrities, including MICHAEL MOORE, SEAN PENN, ALEC BALDWIN, TIM ROBBINS and GEORGE CLOONEY, as well as North Korean leader KIM JONG-II and American President GEORGE W BUSH.

But producers of the film recently scurried to edit a number of scenes in the movie to avoid it being slapped with a more restrictive NC-17 rating.

The new agreement between the ratings board and Stone and Parker was reached just four days before a sneak preview is set to hit theatres.

The film opens across America on 15 October (04).
