So I may have watched this movie last night because a dear friend sent me the French DVD that has the option to watch in English with French subtitles.  That doesn’t mean I won’t go and see it at the cinema because nothing compares to cinema screen Rob.  It’s an “interesting” film that’s for sure and very much a David Cronenberg assault.  Yep.

In any event, the Australian Classification Board has now given Maps a MA15+ classification which is defined as:

“The content is strong in impact.

MA 15+ classified material contains strong content and is legally restricted to persons 15 years and over. It may contain classifiable elements such as sex scenes and drug use that are strong in impact.

A person may be asked to show proof of their age before hiring or purchasing an MA 15+ film or computer game. Cinema staff may also request that the person show proof of their age before allowing them to watch an MA 15+ film. Children under the age of 15 may not legally watch, buy or hire MA 15+ classified material unless they are in the company of a parent or adult guardian. Children under 15 who go to the cinema to see an MA 15+ film must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian for the duration of the film. The parent or adult guardian must also purchase the movie ticket for the child.

The guardian must be an adult exercising parental control over the person under 15 years of age. The guardian needs to be 18 years or older.”

I’ll be honest, I’m surprised it’s not R just saying (and not because of Rob before you get too excited).

    ….so you ‘may have’ watched this movie last night, huh? LMAO. Exactly how many times have I called you a Lucky Bitch this year, dear @Maria?!

    To say I’m just a teensy bit jealous could be considered a MASSIVE understatement. Sounds like The Guardian’s quote “A Brilliant Nightmare” might be quite accurate. Can’t wait.

    LOL @Sue yes I think you’ve now decided to call me that permanently.

    Maria – You have managed to pip my interest even higher, and I wouldn’t have thought that possible.

    Maria = LB. It’s official.

    Yay! and rats! re: film classification and rating (“and not because of Rob”…) OK, I have a dirty mind, I admit it. I’m just glad they haven’t dumbed it down to get a bigger demographic. And girls, there is no such thing as luck – Maria earns her ‘luck’ by sheer hard work promoting this man. She should be on his payroll! 😀
