Absolutely Anything Only Censored in UK Cinemas
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.
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.
