Interesting Take on 'R' Rating for Smoking in Film

I have to admit, when I first heard the MPAA would give an 'R' rating to a movie they felt glorified smoking, I was annoyed. What's next? NC-17 for French kissing?

But Craig Mazin over at The Artful Writer has a really compelling argument for why it's a good idea. Take a look.

And don't forget to check out the comments. There are a lot of them, covering the full spectrum of viewpoints.

  1. Blech.

    I couldn't disagree more with that 'argument'.

    I hate, hate, hate the fact that we are becoming such a hand-holding society.

    God forbid we leave anything up to the parents to talk about with their kids.
