By such classification, the Bible would never make the bookshops.

Murder, incest, prostitution, homosexuality. And of course it may offend people of other faiths.

The Passion of the Christ was an 18 classification, yet most the God squad fanatics recommended it to everyone.

Lord of the Rings was PG(13) - because it contained "scenes of mild violence and horror" :smt102 :smt120

Whilst a sad sign of the times that disclaimers require disclaimers these days, some of the film ones are so silly as to be funny. One scene of mild injury is a pretty good one, and if I could remember any other good ones, I would be sure to post them....

I'd probably join her on the first floor if I see it to be honest...

BJ, did you go and see the film in the end and, if so, was it any good?

We've got a 39" plasma TV and you can count every hair on its legs before the shot cuts to a close-up of its face.
Eeuw! I think I'd rather talk flatulence with Gate! (Sorry Gate - no offence intended)

Gone With The Wind - Certificate G - Contains extended gusset-charring, large butt-rumbling, the fact that you never quite feel clean after a really top one even though you know you didn't follow through, and scenes of a dandy geezer in tight breeches with a tooled moustache lifting the right thigh and saying "Frankly, I couldn't crack a rat".

And James Cagney standing legs akimbo on the roof of a tall building, lighting a phenomenal rasping rip-snorter and shouting "I'm on top of the world, Maa!"
