Michael Moore has lost an appeal to lower the R-rating for Fahrenheit 9/11, his controversial film about George W. Bush's actions before and after the September 11 attacks on the US.


The R-rating prohibits children aged 17 and younger from seeing Fahrenheit 9/11 without an adult.


Distributors Lions Gate Films and IFC Films said yesterday the appeals board of the Motion Picture Association of America had rejected their request to reduce the rating to PG-13.


Moore urged teenagers to see the film anyway. "I encourage all teenagers to come see my movie, by any means necessary. If you need me to sneak you in, let me know," the director said.
