Starring Jack Black, Halston Sage and Odeya Rush. Youtube link BBFC link IMDb UK:  2D and 3D versions were passed PG for frequent scary scenes after BBFC advised pre-cuts for:

  • 2015 cinema release

The BBFC commented:

  • This film was originally seen for advice. The company was told it was likely to be classified 12A, but that their preferred PG could be achieved by making reductions to one scary scene. When the film was submitted for formal classification, this sequence had been acceptably reduced and the film was passed PG.

US: The film was also cut for an MPAA PG RatingProducer Neal Moritz told the Collider :

We had some issues with the poodle which I thought wouldn’t be an issue, but the poodle kind of scared people a little too far so we had to pull that back a little but not that much.

It is not clear if the UK censors came to the same conclusions as the US censors, or else the British censors further cuts to the version cut for the US censors.
