Well it looks like Sony are charging headlong into the field of buggering up their back catalogue with 'clean', 'family friendly' versions of some of their existing films.  Banghead

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Well...

I never watch a movie on an aeroplane for that very reason... all movies on 'planes have to be restricted so that any kid with a TV screen in front of them for five hours or more can watch them. I always take my own movies on a pad to watch on the plane...

And there clearly is a market for such films. Our very good Mormon friends decided (after years of having known them) that they could only watch movies that were below PG rating... Which was a bit of a shame as we'd just set up the LaserDisc of Four Weddings on the minema, the dialogue of the first few minutes (which seemed like a billionteen hours at the time) consists of, "FUCK!"... facepalm:

It's the list of films that seems so ridiculous, I can sort of see a point to Elysium although it may bugger up the plot but Ghostbusters 1 and 2 were kids films already for crying out loud.

I'm going to hazard a guess and say that Sony isn't the studio looking to make a Duke Nukem film..  lol:

For want of anything faintly entertaining on hotel tv I am watching a stock room DVD... 
Swallows and Amazons ...and I think I am already regretting that statement.  redface:
