TheBBFC commented:

  • This film was seen for advice, prior to formal submission. The company was informed that the likely classification was 15, but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a single use of the word ‘motherfucker’. When the film was submitted for formal classification, this word had been replaced and the film was classified 12A.
