    I bought the R2 version of this movie yesterday from Tesco. The certificate on the box is 15, but every internet site that i have looked at so far lists it as 18 and even shows a picture of the cover with the 18 certificate on it.Does anybody know why this is? :confused:

    Mine bought from WH Smith and is 15 too.

    I wouldn't be bothered though.

    I am going to put this down to a mistake by all the sites that list this as an 18 (and there are a lot),because it is indeed a 15.

    The sites probably got ahead of themselves and can't be bothered to change it. It used to be an 18, see.

    bbfc list it as 15. I'd guess the muppet eshops were hoping to draw in more takers with an 18 listing to fool into thinking it's so much harder than previous. Like it ever needed to be. Top film.

    read something in hotdog this weekend that had the head of dvd production at American Zoetrope saying they were under pressure to get a release out following the theatrical release and had no time for extras, although a special collectors "ultra-geek" edition will follow. (his words not mine).
