“It’s bizarre that in this day and age, when lesbians are more accepted in mainstream society than we have ever been, some people still think the “L” word is obscene.”
Six years ago Jana Bennett (now BBC Director of Vision) seemed less than happy that her eight year old daughter had heard the word.
Crap film, but the cover shouldn’t be censored. Not when any child coud walk up to the newspaper stand in a supermarket stand and open the front page of the sun to reveal a mostly naked girl. Censoring the word “lesbian” is offensive to me.
I agree with Stuart entirely! I’ve seen the film, wasn’t moved by it in anyway whatsoever – it’s no Shaun of the Dead, let’s put it that way!
Agreed; the film may be crap but the censorship is totally stupid if not actually homophobic. If it passed the film certification to be on general sale and not in a sex shop, there should be no need to censor it! Is this to save children from asking ‘whats a lesbian mummy?’ (would that be a gay egyptian; sorry I digress!)… Most kids know this stuff anyway! Alas for the innocent days of the 1960s(!)
A desperately unfunny film, an unsaleable product, suddenly becomes the subject of hot controversy through the seller’s PR department.
Shall we just wait and see exactly WHICH supermarket censor the cover – and THEN write a news story about censorship and THEN complain about censorship….
Shame on you pinknews!
Michael – the report names the supermarkets selling the censored title! So pinknews did exactly what you are suggesting. D’oh!
Pathetic, crap film in my opinion. Personally, I reckon the distributors put that label on to try to increase sales and make it look cool and exciting when it’s anything but.
Typical that the Sun was the only newspaper to think it was any good. It was a truly awful film and why anyone would want to buy the DVD is beyond me. Having said that, the word lesbian should not be censored.
