The Brothers Grimsby - Pre-Cuts in the UK

New Sacha Baron Cohen Comedy from 18 to 15

Recently during the film's press circuit, Sacha Baron Cohen's new comedy The Brothers Grimsby stopped by Jimmy Kimmel where a clip was shown to the audience that was received with a disgusted reaction by the studio guests and obviously featured such crass humor that it was not shown to TV viewers. With Cohen, you pretty much know that there are very few boundaries when it comes to jokes. However, Columbia Pictures obviously thinks otherwise and has pre-cut it before it sees the light of day in cinemas.

This film was originally shown to the BBFC, for advice, in an incomplete form. The BBFC advised the company it was likely to be classified 18 but that their preferred 15 could be achieved by making reductions to a couple of scenes of crude humour. When the film was submitted for formal classification, these sequences had been acceptably reduced.

It'll be interesting to see what that means for other territories and whether the home video situation will be as unfortunate as the theatrical one.
