The only thing I can thing of is The Passion Of The Christ was given a 15PG in Ireland, which means basically anyone can go in accompanied by an adult, with most other countries making it a R or 18 rated film.

Also, Lost In Translation most definatly does not deserve a R rating, what a joke.

Nafri, apparantly the American Censors have problems with nudity, but no problem with swearing. I think it may be the opposite in most of europe. Down here in oz, well, we get films banned coz they feature teenagers having sex (Ken Park), or due to graphic violence (Clockwork Orange, recently taken off the ban list after too bloody long)

Censors are wierd, psycho anti-film groups are weirder.

Seems BBFC (Britain ;))are getting more lax about this all the time, Terminator 3 had someone thrusting their hands through a guy's chest and driving a car through him. Tht was pretty gory to say the least, and that movie was PG12. And Shogun Assassin was finally taken off the banned list after 20 years! Everyone should see that film and ask "Why the hell was this banned? It's ****ing awesome".

Hit it right on the head there. USA is way uptight about nudity/sexual content. The chances of seeing someone in undies or heaven forbid naked, on prime time TV (not cable like HBO) is essentially nill. Yet here in europe I see that all the time. Hell, I've seen commercials in Denmark with naked women in them. The flipside is the USA seems to have very little problem with fairly graphical violence on prime time TV, which has always seemed extremely contradictory to me Confused

Clockwork Orange was banned in Aussy-land? Shocked

Micheal Collins in Ireland has a PG cert, but in most of the rest of the world it has a 15 or 18 cert, Guess we just consider a Film made about a national Hero as Educational, I think Shindlers List also had a low cert in Ireland again something about History and stuff, seems Irish Film censers are whimsical, considering they Banned the Exorcist here for nearly 20 Years.

It runs back to one of the first American colonies: the Puritans. These guys were extremely uptight about pleasure. If something was fun or enjoyable, it was evil. Sexual pleasure, since it can be so gratifying, must be tremendously evil. These were attitudes that got them kicked out of Europe. Sadly, they became parts of other colonies, and could be viewed as mere religious extremeists of a sort.

This was back in the 1500s (I think), and they were Cromwell's cronies. Anyhow, they believed pleasure to be evil, and they thought that the punishment should be public to show the message. Public beatings, Scarlet Letters, et cetera. In an oddly twisted way, they prohibited sexuality and encouraged violence. These people formed some of the base motions in American culture.
