  • 2015 cinema release

TheBBFC commented:

  • This film was originally seen for advice, at which stage the company was informed it was likely to receive a 15 classification but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a single use of a strong term (‘motherfucker’). When the film was submitted for formal classification, this term had been partially obscured and the film was classified 12A.
