Leave it to the MPAA to add a slight naughty edge to what would otherwise be considered a pleasant Christmas Day comedy for adults. Apparently, a scene of Meryl Streep and Steve Martin smoking a joint (without consequences!) was too much for the totally straight-edge ratings board, who slapped the film with an R. Underage teens may now be more intrigued to see this flick, but be warned, they will also have to contend with a nearly-nude Alec Baldwin on screen as well. "30 Rock" this ain't.
