This doesn't sound promising.


Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince receives PG-rating in US.

Despite comments from the cast and crew that Half-Blood Prince would be the "darkest" of the films released, the Motion Picture Association of America has announced today that the sixth movie has received a PG rating for "scary images, some violence, language and mild sensuality" in the US.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be out July 17, 2009.


I'm not quite sure whether to laugh or cry. Half-Blood Prince is arguably the second darkest of the books (the darkest being the last one), and they get up to all sorts in this one. Mild sensuality? Mild-bunging-sensuality? I take that as Rupert Grint shares a half-hearted peck on the cheek with the girl playing Lavender Brown. I was snogging with tongues, damnit!

It doesn't sound promising, no...

In all honesty, though, my adolescence was more "mildly" sensual than in HP... sad, I know.

I haven't read the book, is it more extreme than 'mild sensuality'? Is there cottaging or something?

Ron literally snogs Lavendar's face off, and Hermione gets a little freaky with Cormac. Both do it to make the other jealous.
