Wow! Mom and I saw this this afternoon. If I had seen this movie before the Oscars, I would have bet the farm that Colin Firth would have the Best Actor award and the movie the Best Picture. It is hands down one of the best movies, maybe ever! Top ten.
Don't let the R rating keep you away except for the principle if you choose. The blast of F bombs lasted maybe 10 seconds and it's funny and not offensive to the ear and soul. (in my opinion anyway) I am glad they are going to bleep out that scene and release a PG edition. The movie has a good message for young people, history people, disability people and all people and that will open it up for a larger audience.
See it! See it!
