Absolutely Anything Only Censored in UK Cinemas

Comedy With Monty Python Stars Less Vulgar

Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin - highly prominent names if you are vaguely familiar with the Monty Python group. Now add Simon Pegg to the mix and you have a comedy that should do well especially with British audiences. But even though none of those involved have a filmography of all too crude stuff like The Hangover, their new film Absolutely Anything still is a topic of censorship in the UK. As the BBFC's database shows, a "15" rating was possible, but too high for the distributor who wanted a lower classification.

This film was originally seen for advice. The company was advised the likely classification was 15 but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by reducing the quantity of strong language. When the film was submitted for formal classification, the number of uses of strong language had been reduced and the film was therefore classified 12A.

Having that cast, one might understand the studio's decision to make adjustments in order to lure in more people but it's still something that moviegoers despise - and rightly so. It'll be interesting whether those changes also find their way onto the home video releases or - since it's a UK production - whether an uncensored version will ever see the light of day anywhere else.
