The DUFF Gets Censored Cinema Run in the UK

Pre-Cuts For BBFC 12A Rating

It's not only violent scenes that are affected by censorship in the UK when a more mass-appealing age rating is desired by the distributors. Comedies are also often targeted by such measures and the newest case is The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend). In order to prevent the 15 rating, cuts were made and the BBFC says the following:

This film was originally seen for advice, at which stage the company was advised it was likely to receive a 15 classification but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a scene involving strong sex references. When the film was submitted for formal classification, this sequence had been removed and the film was classified 12A.

The theatrical release date is April 6th, 2015, and time will tell whether those cuts will find their way onto the British DVD and Blu-ray later on.
