Katie saw this article online.  I imagine that trying to explain "The Hills Have Eyes 2" to a three-year-old might not be the sort of thing many parents are prepared to do.

I once rented a film from Quickflix [our equivalent net-based dvd library] called "The Erotic Adventures of Zorro" purely based on the rating they gave it: PG [which is the same as your average Disney film here]

I really wanted to see how they could make an erotic adventure so dull to be rated PG.  Unfortunately it was a mistake in the ratings [it would have been much funnier if it wasn't.]

But it did get me thinking about the same thing here: What would happen to the kids who watched it expecting something else?

The theater that made the mistake is at the Nicolls Road exit off of 495.  Until I transferred from being stationed at Amityville, we lived in Farmingville, one exit further up 495.  I was probably living 3 miles from that theater.  Amusing.

Speaking of mislabeled movies, I have a story which happened to a friend's family.  This took place about twenty years ago, when VHS was the king of the rental store.  The family rented "Cinderella" for the little girl.  Unfortunately, the film in the case (the case was for a child's version - I am uncertain if it was Disney or a knockoff) was an adult version.  The daughter was old enough to put tapes in the VCR herself and the kids saw some raunchy stuff before the parents noticed.

Ah mislabelled movies, my old friend.  A good few years ago I played around with the idea of renting and taping over part of the movie Aladdin.  I was going to replace the audio for "A whole new world" with the spoof version I had found called "A whole NUDE world" which was quick lyrically explicit.  The idea was the next hapless person to rent it for their kids would then have quite the surprise.  Guilt over scarring little children and the obvious downside of them knowing who hired it last stopped me from this piece of cultural jamming but I thought it was fun all the same.

I got the idea from a story my friend told me a while ago.  Him and his brother had hired "Milo and Otis" and at the end credits the tape went all fuzzy, and on came a hardcore porno that someone had taped onto the end of the movie.  Needless to say, he was pretty happy with the choice of movie to rent that week...

They did something similar in a New York cinema with Chicken Little.  Someone accidentally ran an indie flick that starts off with a guy hanging himself. 

I felt so evil when I read this, because I imagined the projector guy dozing off, then being woken up by hundreds of innocent little screams.

That took me way back to something in the news years ago.   The kids at a public school, I think 4th graders were going to watch a family movie, but instead, what was playing was, I think either Child's Play 2 or 3.  As a matter of fact, I remember back when I was in 6th grade, I had a science teacher from time to time let us watch movies.  One was that Kevin Costner movie No Way Out (I should get that on DVD), and us kids did get a sneak peek at some naked strippers and topless ladies before the teacher was quick enough to press the fast forward.  We didn't say anything so it was out of sight, out of mind.

Ahhhh perhaps I'm a bit jacked in the head but I find this hilarious. I recall the very first time I saw the teaser trailer for The Last Mimzy months ago. Where it was just some weird kids and a creepy bunny, before it explained what the movie was about. And thinking to myself how AWESOME it would be if it turned out to be some grotesque horror movie in disguise. And all of these little shiny happy families would be shocked to death when the funny little bunny opens its mouth and bits someone's face off in the opening scene or something to that degree. oooh the screams!


yes yes I know. I shall have my own lemonade stand in hell for this thought. And I even have a small child of my own too!

teeheehee.......

I remember in 5th or 6th grade (seem to be grade where all this happens) when someone brought "Akira" to class. It seemed all good until the part where one of the gangs rip the top off the girl and see some boobs for a second.  Our teacher ran and shut it off. To be honest maybe 4 kids noticed and laughed.

Another fun ratings debacle was the mislabeled rating on the original MGM DVD release of Swamp Thing. I bought it on VHS and was (pleasantly) shocked to see Adrian Barbeau's mammaries among other things. Sadly, I missed out on getting the R-Rated (Or was it PG-Rated) cut of the film on dvd before MGM pulled it. I have the new PG-release on dvd and pine for Ms. Barbeau's breasts every time I watch it.   Bluesad

There's also a rating misprint on Deep Blue Sea.  I hate having to explain to kids who shop at the Wal-Mart I work at under 17 that we can't sell them the movie because it's actually rated R, and that the PG-13 rating on the back is a mistake.
