Reverse Censorship: Snakes On A Plane

The dog bites man story of the movie industry is a film that cuts out sex and/or violence and/or profanity in order to avoid an R or X rating (yes, I know that they X rating is called X anymore). But, it happens in reverse too. Take the case of the already cult B-Movie in progress called "Snakes on A Plane":

New Line recently requested that the movie's PG-13 rating be switched to R and ordered the shooting of additional scenes, including one with Jackson spouting an expletive like in [Chris] Rohan's [spoof] trailer.

"More power to that," Rohan said. "I love just hearing Samuel L. Jackson blurt out the F-word every five seconds."

Go figure!
