The Motion Picture Association of America's Classification and Ratings Administration released their weekly ratings bulletin this morning, which included ratings for The Social Network and Morning Glory along with Weinstein Company festival favorites The King's Speech and The Company Men.

The Social Network was rated PG-13 for "sexual content, drug and alcohol use and language." This implies that the seemingly R-rated scene in which star Justin Timberlake does cocaine off a co-ed's breast didn't make the final cut, though it's also possible the MPAA somehow dubbed it PG-13-worthy. The David Fincher-directed, Aaron Sorkin-penned movie about the founding of Facebook is slated to open Oct. 1, opposite horror remake Let Me In and long-shelved supernatural thriller Case 39.

Morning Glory received a PG-13 rating for "some sexual content including dialogue, language and brief drug references." The movie stars Rachel McAdams as an aspiring TV producer who has to reign in the conflicting egos of two morning show hosts, played by Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton. The J.J. Abrams production is currently scheduled to open in limited release on Nov. 12, though, with the talent involved, a nationwide release is almost certain to occur at some point.

The King's Speech was rated R for "some language." Starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter, the period drama has been received raves from the Telluride Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival and is set to debut in limited release on Nov. 24.

The Company Men earned an R rating for "language and brief nudity." Starring Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner and Chris Cooper as men affected by the economic downturn, the Sundance hit opens in limited release on Oct. 22 with planned expansions on Oct. 29 and Nov. 5.

After grossing $96,658 in its opening weekend, documentary I'm Still Here officially received an R rating for "sexual material, graphic nudity, pervasive language, some drug use and crude content."
