Religulous release date revised
Thanks to wandapec at the South African Skeptics forum for reminding me about this …
Also, both of the film distributers have posted the age restriction; Ster Kinekor has listed it as 18 LP for Language and Prejudice and Nu Metro has listed it as 18 LBP for Language, Prejudice and a category I have never seen on another film; “B”? Are they perhaps refering to Blashpemy? I have confirmed on the Film and Publication Board’s website that it is the case that “B” refers to Blasphemy. Why have we never seen this on other films before, such as the thousands which feature the phrase “Oh my god”? Does any other country in the world have such a rating?
Even the 18 rating should have us concerned. Only the USA and Australia also rated the film 18 or Mature (17) when Switzerland rated the film 10 and the UK rated the film 15.
From the international reviews, it even seems that non-fundamentalist religious viewers were not at all offended by the movie and laughed at all the jokes. I don’t think any of them would have said that it was blasphemous if they were laughing. I’m eager to see how it is received here.
