MPAA Upholds R Rating for 'How Do You Know'

The Columbia picture from James L. Brooks has lost its appeal.

On appeal, the MPAA's Classification and Rating Appeals Board has upheld the R rating it gave to James L. Brooks' How Do You Know for language.

But even though the appeal is over, the studio is expected to work with the filmmakers and the MPAA to make whatever cuts are necessary to get a PG-13 rating.

Columbia Pictures releases the film Dec. 17.
