‘Jeopardy!’ Legend Ken Jennings Offers Hilarious Take on Reported ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ R-Rated Cut

by Thad Mitchell

As the most successful Jeopardy! contestant of all time, Ken Jennings‘ thoughts and opinions are highly valuable.

Jennings often offers up his take on a number of issues on his social media pages. A recent Twitter interaction drew the attention of movie watchers as well as fans of Jennings’s thoughts on social issues.

A Twitter user suggests he doesn’t believe there is an “NC-17 rated” cut of the 1993 hit film “Mrs. Doubtfire.” The social media poster says he doubts there is a version of the movie that warrants such a strong rating “based on language.” Jennings replies that the language in the rumored NC-17 cut of the film is “twice as bad” as an “R” movie.

“Sorry I am still stuck on people pretending to believe there is an NC-17 cut of Mrs. Doubtfire base on Language,” the tweets says.

Jennings gives his humorous reply saying that words in an NC-17 rating are twice as bad as words in an “R” rating.

“You know the words that make a move ‘R’?” he says in the response. “These words are twice as bad.”

‘Jeopardy!’ Champion Wraps Up Hosting Stint

Jennings recently wrapped up his stint as the celebrity guest host of the popular quiz show Jeopardy!. Game show officials have turned to celebrities to fill in for the departed Alex Trebek. The longtime host appeared on the game show for 37 years, recording his final episodes before his death late last year. Trebek passed away on November 8, 2020, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Jennings is the most successful Jeopardy! contestant of all time, racking up more than $2 million in winnings during his record 74-game winning streak in 2004. As such, he was a natural selection to be the first guest host of the show. He could also receive consideration for the full-time gig once Jeopardy! officials decide to go that route.

Also serving as hosts were Executive Producer Mike Richards and journalist Katie Couric. Dr. Mehmet Oz is currently hosting the show and will be for the next two weeks. Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers is in the on-deck circle and will begin his hosting tenure on Monday, April 5.
