The Passion Recut
Mel Gibson either wanted to make a few million more bucks off Jesus or (as he claims) wanted to reach a wider audience. For whatever reason, Mel decided to recut The Passion of the Christ
, eliminating some of the more flagrant bloodshed and making it suitable for families. But a funny thing happened on the way to Golgotha. Gibson trimmed the film, sent it back to the ratings board ... and still got an R-rating. So now the film is being released "unrated" like a common art house sex film--which should theoretically earn it ouster from a number of conservative newspapers and from Blockbuster Video, all of whom shun unrated films.
