In yet another example of the inadequacy and the deliberate obfuscation of the MPAA ratings systems, we have the ratings for both the theatrical release of “Horrible Bosses 2” and the upcoming unrated DVD. Not only does the explanation omit the violence in the film (including a deliberate murder by gun), it makes no distinction between the theatrical release and the presumably raunchier DVD, with whatever scenes were omitted to get an R rating.
