Hey...ya just never know...

I had a school district prohibit the general use of videos because of a
"parental complaint" over a teacher using "Free Willy" in the classroom.
The issue, you ask?.... PG means PARENTAL Guidance.....they (the
parents) were not present!

Although I'm scratching my head as to what they could possibly have
found to edit in Wallace & Gromit or Pride & Prejudice (these are
apparently people who also complain about language on broadcast TV), I
know that using editted films is often the only way that K-12 teachers
can show some films -- over-zealous administrators who are concerned
about over-reactive parents tend to issue edicts about R-rated films --
so I guess it meets a need.

Is this site the reincarnation of FamilySafeMedia?

CleanFlicks "We are the leading
provider of Edited Hollywood movies. We remove all:
Profanity, Nudity, Graphic Violence, Sexual Content. Over 700 Edited

Reading the list of profanity they promise to edit out, I had to laugh
while I guessed at all the "B-, H-, D-, and S-words" they might mean.
(Those are bad words?)
