Hangover II cut by the British film censor for a 15 rating

HANGOVER REPRODUCTION PHOTO POSTER 16X12 The Hangover: Part II is a 2011 US comedy by Todd Philips. See IMDb

This time the stag party fun takes place in Thailand.

The film was passed 15 after BBFC suggested cuts for category for:

  • UK 2011 cinema release

The BBFC commented: Ping Pong Show

This film was originally shown to the BBFC in an unfinished version. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive an 18 classification but that the requested 15 certificate could be achieved by making two cuts to still images seen during the end credits.

  • These cuts were to remove sight of a woman apparently penetrating her vagina with a string of material and
  • sight of a naked woman, with her legs apart, ejecting a ping pong ball from her vagina.

When the finished version of the film was submitted, these still images had been tightly reframed to avoid any explicit or graphic detail and the film was classified 15 .

Japanese police order digital masking for general release of Hangover Part II

Hangover Part II DVD Japanese police censors have ordered that Hangover Part II must be censored for general release. Male genital shots must be masked for an R15 certificate release.

However a single cinema will be allowed to show the uncut version with an R18 rating. Tokyo's Metropolitan Police, which monitors 'obscene' content under Japan's legal code, passed the shots for the R18 print saying the aim was to arouse laughs, not lust.

The police launched a probe, acting on complaints about nudity, after the comedy was released on nearly 130 screens on July 1. It decided not to prosecute but did ask Warner not to release the R18 version on DVD.
