“You’re gonna freak out, but it’s gonna be okay…..”
Note to movie audiences: If the trailer for a comedy is pulled from theaters because it has been deemed “too racy” and not suitable for all audiences, it’s probably going to be a friggin’ hilarious movie.
Case in point…The Hangover Part II…..
Movie theaters across the country were instructed to stop showing the new trailer for The Hangover Part II – the follow-up to the hysterically funny The Hangover – after movie executives admitted that they had not cleared the trailer with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) before releasing it for viewing by the general public.
So what’s in this trailer that is just so crazy it can’t be shown to all movie-goers?
Among other things, a monkey biting a pretend phallus.
“When a monkey nibbles on a wienus it’s funny in any language”
It may seem like no big deal to bawdy people like you and I, but The Hangover Part II is rated R and that’s a problem because the trailer was being shown before Source Code, which is PG-13. Ooops.
The MPAA is ticked because one of their main objectives is to make sure movie advertising is in sync with the ratings system.
A rep for Warner Bros — the company behind the flick — tells TMZ, “In our haste to meet the placement schedule for this trailer, we failed to properly vet the final version with the MPAA. We acted immediately to correct the mistake and removed the trailer from screens.”
The new – and approved – Hangover 2 trailer will hit theaters on April 15th.
