Mike Birbiglia and Trevor Noah Talk Success, Jealousy, and ‘Don’t Think Twice’s R Rating

Here’s a clip from Mike Birbiglia’s visit to last night’s Daily Show, where he and Trevor Noah talk about the themes of jealousy, success, and friendship in his new film Don’t Think Twice and the MPAA’s decision to give it an R rating despite giving the violence-filled Suicide Squad a PG-13 rating. “How come ours is rated R? All we have is adult human beings smoking pot like once. Nobody kills anybody,” Birbiglia says. “The MPAA ratings system is very strange. It’s very friendly to violence and very unfriendly to fun drugs.”
