I've often watched movies while unaware of what the rating is. Afterwards, as I've put the DVD back on the shelf, I've seen the rating and sometimes I have been rather surprised at what it is. Therefore, it seems to me that there must be quite a few DVDs out there with ratings that surprise some of us because they don't seem to quite match the content. So what gets your vote for the most surprising rating on a DVD? I'll give you two recent ones of mine, both of which are comedies, to start things off..... 1. Kingpin R1 (Director's Cut) - rated R This Director's Cut is supposed to have additional material that makes it worthy of an increased R rating. I can't say I noticed much that was different from the original version (although it was a few years ago the last time I saw it), but more importantly, I found nothing in there that justified this R rating! No gratuitous violence, no extreme nudity, no gratuitous swearing, nothing! 2. Joe Dirt R2 - rated 12 There's a bit in this movie where there's some confusion over whether a girl that Joe is currently dating is his sister or not. After he finds out that she's not his sister, Joe finds it difficult to 'rise to the occasion'. Therefore, in the belief that it might help, him and the girl therefore 'pretend' that they are indeed related and Joe is once again able to 'perform'. Given the jokes often made about 'relatives' and 'white trash' in America (this film is set within a 'white trash' community), this is not as bad as it might sound here where I've taken it out of context. However, this aside, it's not really what parents might expect given the 12 rating!
