Casual Browsing: Parental Guidance Ed.

knocked-up.jpg— Early word from the inside is that everyone wants to take Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up (R rated trailer) out behind the middle school to get it pregnant. “They’re saying how it’s funnier and filthier than The 40 Year Old Virgin which Judd Apatow also wrote and directed and produced, but also has that same level of emotional honesty.” [Deadline Hollywood]

— Just one of many Grindhouse waves to come before the April 6th debut: a 25 minute making-of-Grindhouse featurette [MovieWeb]. Variety throws-back to a 1991 Q&A with a fresh-faced Tarantino, before Reservoir Dogs hit Sundance between the eyes. More retro: 1994 Quentin on Robert De Niro video [The Hot Blog]. Robert Rodriguez picks the finalists of the amateur fake trailer competition [Cinema Blend] with Hobo With a Shotgun coming out on top, although we would have bet on Maiden of Death.

Secretary, David Cronenberg’s Crash, In the Realm of the Senses, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! – ScreenGrab lists and YouTubes 14 of the Kinkiest Films that don’t involve sneaking past a curtain or into a backroom of some sort. Part 1Part 2.

— “Generally, it is not appropriate for parents to bring their young children with them to R-rated motion pictures.” Still reeling from the This Film Is Not Yet Rated effect, and hearing it from parent groups on the other end of the spectrum, the MPAA at least has the common sense to add an “advisory” (albeit flaccid) for deadbeat parentals to refrain from buying tickets to Saw 3 for baby’s night out. Yes, it happens. Still, no “Hard R” yet.
