Garrison, Love the movie trailer;

April 26, 2006 |

Garrison,
Love the movie trailer; can't wait to enjoy the movie and Robert Altman's take on your wonderful radio show. However, I've never seen a PG-13 rated movie that warns parents of Risque Humor? Are you the first and if so, aren't you thrilled with such a rating distinction?

Hudson, Ohio, is the home of Ian Frazier, unless I'm mistaken. A great American humorist. Is there a statue of him in front of the courthouse? Perhaps a small one?

As for the PG-13 rating, Mr. Altman was angling for that. I suppose he felt that his fans wouldn't go to a G-rated movie. So I believe he arranged for Woody Harrelson to tell a couple of risque jokes and thus require parents to accompany the kiddoes to the movie and explain the jokes to them. I myself know nothing about ratings, and can't comment.
