The ex-lovers, who married in 1990, will take their adopted daughter, Isabella, 11, and nine-year-old son, Connor, to Sydney, Australia.

Ray Bradbury wants Fahrenheit to be renamed

When Ray Bradbury, author of the classic science fiction novel "Fahrenheit 451," learned of the title to Michael Moore's new film, he demanded an apology and asked the Moore rename "Fahrenheit 9/11."
Bradbury told a Swedish journalist that Moore is a "dreadful" and "dishonest" man and said that in his mind Moore plagiarized the title. Bradbury said his fury "has nothing to do with my political views."

Fahrenheit 451 portrays an futuristic society in which firemen burn homes and libraries to destroy the books inside and keep people from thinking independently.

Joanne Doroshow, a spokeswoman for "Fahrenheit 9/11," said the film's makers have "the utmost respect for Ray Bradbury."
"Mr. Bradbury's work has been an inspiration to all of us involved in this film, but when you watch this film you will see the fact that the title reflects the facts that the movie explores, the very real life events before, around and after 9/11," she said.


In its opening weekend Fahrenheit topped the box office, taking $8.2 million. It opened in only 868 cinemas nationwide. For comparison, the much-hyped movie White Chicks, which opened at the same time but in a total of 2726 cinemas, took $6.7m.

Fahrenheit 9/11 only for adults

American censors gave Michael Moore's movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" R rating for "strong language and violence". An "R" rating prohibits anyone under 17 years of age from seeing the film unless accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

"I think that the R rating is wrong and inappropriate, and we're going to do everything we can do to get it overturned and make it a PG-13 rating so we can bring 'Fahrenheit 9/11' to the widest possible audience," Lions Gate Films Releasing president Tom Ortenberg said.

"It is sadly very possible that many 15- and 16-year-olds will be asked and recruited to serve in Iraq in the next couple of years," Moore said in a weekend statement.

"If they are old enough to be recruited and capable of being in combat and risking their lives, they certainly deserve the right to see what is going on in Iraq."

Probably there is time to add R rating to all news channels.
