Expendables 2 will be rated R, Mister Falcon


You may recall reports at the beginning of the year that Chuck Norris hobbled Expendables 2 into a PG-13 rating. Turns out that Chuck isn’t a fan of the swear words, so Sylvester Stallone supposedly cut all the naughty cusses from the film. In an ideal world, the swears would have just been redubbed by the people who did the TV edits of Die Hard II or The Big Lebowski.

But okay, listen up, Mister Falcons. Stallone now says the film is rated R. He told the fan website The Stallone Zone the following: “After taking in all the odd rumours and hearsay, EXPENDABLES II is an R.” He’s a rascal, but he’s my kind of rascal.

Looks like Stallone just peed on Chuck’s valued rug. No word yet from Norris about this. Hopefully Chuck doesn’t feel like Stallone found a stranger in the Alps. But now you see what happens, Chuck. Now you see what happens when you feed a walrus scrambled eggs. Oh, and Expendables 2: The Expendening comes out August 17th.
