This Film is Not Yet Rated
Cannot image that Jamie Babbit’s But I’m a Cheerleader first received a rating of NC-17 (the kiss of death for films seeking U.S. distribution) 😈 . This also reminds me of the documentary The Celluloid Closet. This was out in 1995 before But I’m a Cheerleader and Boys Don’t Cry (both in 1999), otherwise it would include the interviews of these two films.
Look like that 4 years later the attitude didn’t change much. Hopefully in the 21th century, it will be different (is it? 😕 ).
Check out the official site for the trailer, posters (actually there is another one called “his” but most sites posted only “her”* — wondering why … 😉 ).
Don’t forget to check out the animation of “What do the MPAA ratings mean?”
(another site to check trailer and addition clip is ifilm — but lots of cookies)
*PS: Are we sure that is a woman? I don’t see xxx …
