Don’t Think Twice director, Mike Birbiglia doesn’t understand why the MPAA gave his brand new movie an R-rating while allowing, Suicide Squad which is full of gun toting violence only a PG-13. Birbiglia took to Twitter vent his frustration with such a decision.

He later added “F- the MPAA”, but has since deleted the tweet.

Trainwreck, Funny People and This is 40 director, Judd Apatow responded to Birbiglia adding his opinion on the matter.

Suicide Squad hits theaters this week but is not faring well with critics which could spell more trouble for DC and Warner Bros. Don’t Think Twice was released earlier this year at South by Southwest and currently holds a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film stars Birbiglia, Keegan-Michael Key, Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Tami Sagher and Chris Gethard.

        Tell me, how much do you get paid to post sh** all over the internet? Coz I am damn sure you can’t be doing this for free and still taking it too seriously? I mean YOU ARE ALL OVER THE F’ING INTERNET, EVERY THREAD, EVERY POST, EVERY BLOG THERE IS ABOUT A DC MOVIE. If you hate it so much, why waste your time posting about it? NOW don’t tell me that you’re a troll as even trolls have a life and they have to make a living but with the consistency that you’re posting all over the internet ever since BVS was announced, it can’t be for the sake of trolling.

          Well if it means anything, I’m a fan of DC’s straight to blu-ray cartoon features.

            Good for you. I bet that is the only thing safe for your 5 year old mind. Someone like you who doesn’t have a life should not be watching movies like this because who knows, you might end up having a nervous breakdown.

            Oh, no worries there, old bean…The voices in my head keeps me firmly tethered to this pretentious dark gritty reality you silly lil’ dc fangurls mistakenly call “DEEP”.

          • Technofied

            We don’t call it deep. The only deep i know is the laying in the bedroom right next to ya.

    Very sad that in the 21st century Americans are more worried about kids seeing someone smoke or say the dreaded F word than bloody violence. Stupid puritanical values.

      Don’t forget boobies.

      Naked boobies and nudity in general.

      The MPAA loves to hate those too.

      But someone getting their heads blown off or pulverized with a 50-Cal or AR-15?

      Totes okay
