Indeed, I am rather envious.

I remember it was a '15' certificate at the cinema, & I went to see it when I was 14 & was rather chuffed that nobody questioned my age.

It's a great film, but usually totally un-watchable on TV. I forget the channel, but the last time I did, they cut the 'That's a knife.' line. They showed up to where Dundee says 'That's not a knife', then cut the next, arguably most famous line in the film. There's also a drug scene which I don't think I've ever seen on a TV showing.

I can understand them not showing the drug scene but why cut out the lines "you can live on it but it tastes like shit" its a reccuring joke and seems fairly tame

It's pointless watching a lot of these old 15 films, which by today's standards would be certificated 12A.

The word shit, I am confident in saying, is not really that offensive anymore; and as for kids, sometimes I have to get on the bus when they're going home from school, & their language is enough to make the air turn blue!

I'm sure I remember reading that one of the things that secured a '15' for it back in the day was that the F-word can be heard once used by someone in the background or in a crowd scene, almost missably so but of course it didn't pass James Ferman by

One of those fims that when you re-watch it after a long time, it actually seems a bit crap.

It was probably a few lines from the pimp (and the drug scene) which elevated it to 15 rating in the 80s. Both are always cut out these days on TV.

It winds me up when it's shown after the watershed and we still only get the cut version, which happens occasionally.

Being half Australian i've always hated those films. No Aussie i've ever met my age likes them. Australia isn't anything like that.

I watched it last night. They cut the tastes like s**t lines but keep in the Australian saying I need a p**s. the You can live on it line looked stupid as Mick said it then it cut to an overhead shot with Sue laughing at it. And the party scene just seemed completely pointless without the drug scene. Like it was just put in to fill time. I last saw the film around seven years ago and it was uncut but I cant remember if it was a dvd or a tv screening.

True. It's more like 'Neighbours'.

Why would that make it pointless? 12A films can still be enjoyed just as much as 15's

Nah, it's still a good film. Good characters, great script, brilliant one-liners.

Shame about how the tv version has cut a lot of the best jokes out.
