The Longest Ride - Censored in British Cinemas

Nicholas Sparks Adaptation Features Less Sex

When you think about film adaptations of schmaltz novel specialist Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, The Best of Me), the last thing that comes to mind is probably censorship. Especially since those movies are so mainstreamed and tame so that the audience doesn't get disturbed while admiring all the genre tropes.

In the US, the newest adaptation The Longest Ride has met all the criteria for the masses as it was rated PG-13 by the MPAA. And that with some sex happening between the couple. It's a bit ironic that this US-approved sex is still something that is too revealing for the British ratings board BBFC which didn't want to rate the film 12A. The distributor had to choose between an uncut 15 rating or cutting some "strong sex". You can guess what they chose:

This film was originally seen for advice, when the company was informed that it was likely to receive a 15 classification but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a scene of strong sex. When the film was submitted for formal classification, that scene had been removed and the film was classified 12A.

British customers looking for the uncensored version must reserve their hopes for the eventual DVD and Blu-ray releases. Since it's a US film, it could be more realistic that the cuts are reversed for home cinema. In theaters, the ride will be a bit shorter.
