'Eat Pray Love,' now for kids!

June 2, 2010 |  6:16 pm

All the 13-year-olds who were hoping to see Julia Roberts turn her life around after a divorce can rest easy: "Eat Pray Love" has been upgraded from an R to a PG-13 by the Motion Picture Assn. of America.

But filmgoers may get a little more than they bargained for when they head out to see the New Age-y romantic comedy. According to a statement from the group's Classification and Rating Appeals Board, the movie had been given an  "R rating for 'brief strong language.' The film is now rated PG-13 for 'brief strong language, some sexual references and male rear nudity.' So it got some male rear nudity and then landed a looser rating. The ways of the MPAA are mysterious.
