Infinity Pool is a 2022 Canada/Hungary/France Sci-Fi horror by Brandon Cronenberg
Starring Mia Goth, Alexander Skarsgård and Amanda Brugel IMDb
Originally the movie was MPA NC-17 rated, but the producers decided to appeal for an R rating.

The Classification and Rating Administration's (CARA) Appeals Board tied in a vote to change the NC-17 rating to R but a two thirds majority is required to change the rating and so the NC-17 rating was maintained.

The producers then decided to cut the movie for an MPA R rating.

It is not yet clear if the cuts will affect international releases.

Summary Notes

James and Em Foster are enjoying an all-inclusive beach vacation in the fictional island of La Tolqa, when a fatal accident exposes the resort's perverse subculture of hedonistic tourism, reckless violence and surreal horrors.

A little off pitch...

Military Wives cut in the US for an MPAA PG-13 rating

Link Here12th February 2020
Military Wives is a 2019 UK comedy drama by Peter Cattaneo.
Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Sharon Horgan and Emma Lowndes. BBFC link IMDb

Inspired by global phenomenon of military wives choirs, the story celebrates a band of misfit women who form a choir on a military base. As unexpected bonds of friendship flourish, music and laughter transform their lives, helping each other to overcome their fears for loved ones in combat.

In the US the film was originally rated R by the MPAA for brief language and a sexual reference.

The distributors appealed hoping for a PG-13 rating, but did not win their case. Instead they edited  the film to achieve an MPAA PG-13 rating for some strong language and sexual references.

For comparison the BBFC gave the film a 12A rating for infrequent strong language, moderate sex references.
