Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer Rated PG?!

Do you remember last year when there was a big announcement that Fox's huge Christmas tentpole Eragon was only going to be rated PG? Then everyone went and saw it and realized it was one of the worst movies of last year. Be ready for that all over again, this time with Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Confirmed by Fox, the film is now officially rated only PG, even lower than the upcoming Harry Potter film, and only has a running time of 92 minutes.
Originally spawned from CanMag, this story has spread quickly and been confirmed by Fox. I can only wonder how much wrath and destruction the Silver Surfer is going to bring upon earth when he can't even physically hurt… anyone?! And how did they go from being rated PG-13 for "sequences of intense action" in the first Fantastic Four to PG in the second one?
Honestly, I would really suggest you skip Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer in theaters. I rarely say this, but you already know it's going to be bad, this just puts the final cap on that suspicion. Don't waste your time or money, go see Knocked Up, one of the best comedies of the year, Ocean's Thirteen, Surf's Up, or Fido instead, all much, much better choices certainly worth your money.
