Dark of the Moon Officially Rated PG-13

As if there was any real doubt, but the MPAA has given Transformers: Dark of the Moon a PG-13 rating. This is the same rating as the other two movies and what Hollywood considers the "sweet spot" for attempting to reach maximum ticket sells at the box office. The given reason for the rating is "intense prolonged sequences of sci-fi action violence, mayhem and destruction, and for language, some sexuality and innuendo" aka robots causing massive death and destruction while a hot blonde (Rosie) look sexy. Really it is a rubber stamping process as MPAA gives studios whatever rating they want on their big budget films as their funding comes from these studios. Bay would have had to intentionally throw in a few F-bombs and nudity for the film not to get a PG-13. Still confirmation is confirmation. (via TFW2005, thanks to Sahara for the link)
