‘KIDS’ SWITCH IN ONTARIO

The Ontario Review Board has changed its mind about “Kids.” The provincial government film ratings authority had initially slapped an R tag on the controversial pic, which depicts teens using drugs and experimenting with unsafe sex. That decision barred anyone under 18 from viewing the pic.

But after an appeal from the film’s Canadian distributor, Alliance Releasing, the board decided July 27 to give “Kids” the less-restrictive AA rating. That ratings allows anyone over 14 to see the pic; those under 14 can get in if accompanied by an adult.

With Alliance winning its appeal in Ontario, the film now has relatively unrestrictive ratings in the three markets across Canada where it opened July 28.
