'Fifty Shades of Gray' Rated R for 'Unusual Behavior' That Freaked the MPAA Out

January 8, 2015


Well, Fifty Shades of Grey may have been labeled "mommy porn," but in the lustful eyes of the porn-determiners at the MPAA, apparently it is not quite actual pornography. In a relief for the studio and a defeat for so many near-menopausal desires, Sam Taylor-Johnson's adaptation of the E. L. James erotic bestseller has managed not to get lashed with an NC-17 rating. According to Variety, the film will hit theaters next month with merely an R rating--the MPAA adding caution against "strong sexual content," "graphic nudity," and in their words, "some unusual behavior." And while the last bit may seem a bit judgmental, it's hard to dispute that it is pretty unusual to stand unsheltered in the rain while you're orgasming.
