NOT that I would ever recommend such things but SWANK often has
PG rated versions of R rated films available for rental ( but probably not
for blanket license screening)

Does remind of an incident when I worked at the late Films Inc
A rather conservative Christian group wanted to show YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMS
which was PG but they wanted to be SURE it had NO profanity. I suggested
they check out a copy from a rental store and watch it themselves. They
called back to say that they wanted to rent it EVEN though it had two
"damns" in it. They normally would have rejected it on those grounds but
decided that the accents were so thick it would be OK
