We're working to do everything we can to make this film available to as many parents, teachers and students cross the country," TWC president of marketing Stephen Bruno said. Releasing an unrated film in New York and Los Angeles will be far easier than in America's heartland, and the option of tweaking the film remains open so that it could go out with a PG-13.
