Kudos to Kevin Smith. Following his appeal to the MPAA over the X-rating received by “Zack and Miri Make A Porno” the decision was made to lower the rating to “R”:

Motion Picture Association of America spokeswoman Elizabeth Kaltman said Tuesday the rating was revised after the group’s appeals board viewed the movie.

“We didn’t set out to make an NC-17 film. That’s just commercial suicide,” Smith told The Associated Press.

Considering the things that pass for PG-13 these days (ahem, The Dark Knight) I have to wonder if simply the subject matter alone is what pushed this one over the edge. Great news though that the MPAA “viewed the movie”. Perhaps they could have tried that the first time…

Zack and Miri make a movie theater appearance on October 31, 2008.
