"'I don’t even know if we can top [Piranha],' lamented sequel director John Gulager, whose horror film Feast was the subject of the Bravo moviemaking documentary series Project Greenlight in 2005.

No Bully-style quibbling here: Per a just-issued
press release email, the Weinstein Co. approves of the MPAA's decision on their other Very Important Movie of the year, the boobtacular June sequel Piranha 3DD. "PIRANHA 3DD accepts a well deserved Rated R for 'sequences of strong bloody horror violence and gore, graphic nudity, sexual content, language, and some drug use,'" writes a rep for the company. See, they can totally accept the MPAA's decision without turning it into a shameless opportunity for publicity!
