Paddington and a Noteworthy Rating Reasoning

How Sex Turns Into Innuendo

The British kid's movie Paddington deals with a talking bear and got its expected PG rating in the UK. Quite unexpected was, though, that the BBFC reasoned that classification by saying: "dangerous behaviour, mild threat, mild sex references, mild bad language."

The author of the books was shocked by that as he told the Daily Mail in an interview. Where does the story feature sex references? The British distributor then contacted the BBFC and they showed understanding because the rating reason then was changed from "mild sex references" to "innuendo". The scene in question features a man dressed as a woman who then gets flirted with by another man.

Since the film is clearly meant for kids, it's understandable that the distributor was interested in that alteration because "sex references" could very well scare off some parents of little kids.
