6 MOVIE SCENES CUT FOR BEING TOO OFFENSIVE

 

Let’s face it, movies that push the envelope can be really appealing. Whether it’s over the top violence, steamy sex scenes, or cringe-inducing humor, writers and directors like to go to the extreme and see what they can get away with. Sometimes it works, and sometimes the censors put their foot down, forcing scenes to be cut so they can save audiences from being horribly offended. These movie scenes had to be altered or even axed completely just to allow their films to make it by the censors.


DEADPOOL LOOKS LIKE WHAT?
Deadpool has become quite infamous, not just for the crazy violence, recording-breaking box office numbers, and raunchy jokes, but for what didn’t make it to the screen as well. An early red band trailer showed an extended version of the bar scene in which Deadpool reveals his disfigured face and his friend Weasel makes a number of disgusting jokes about his visage. According to director Tim Miller, that scene had been tweaked by actors Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller to go on for quite a while and the resulting dialogue was extremely offensive. The lines were so harsh that they make what was left in the movie sound appropriate for Nickelodeon.


OSMOSIS JONES AT THE GYM
Osmosis Jones focused on animated characters that lived inside real life characters and featured a fairly impressive cast, including Chris Rock and Bill Murray. The idea was to court both younger and family audiences, which meant at least one scene was never going to make it into the final cut of the film. This axed scene features the main animated characters Osmosis, a white blood cell, and Drix, a cold medication pill, inside the body of one of the real life characters, at a place called Gonad’s Gym. The two characters go about the gym questioning sperm cells that are working out. Even though the scene was cut, there’s still one or two sperm jokes that made it into the film.


AGENT COULSON’S DEATH IN THE AVENGERS
It’s hard to imagine that anything from The Avengers needed to be cut to ensure the movie wasn’t going to offend anyone, but Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, revealed in some interviews that the PG-13 film had a speed bump that was directing it towards an R rating. In the first cut, Agent Coulson’s death is almost exactly as it is in the final cut with one significant difference. When Loki kills Coulson, the camera is on the agent as Loki’s scepter stabs him from behind. The movie was edited to remove the image of Loki’s scepter emerging through Coulson’s chest


MURPHY’S DEATH IN ROBOCOP
Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 RoboCop was an intense action flick and a brutal satire—the keyword being brutal. Near the beginning of the film, Peter Weller’s Alex Murphy is shot to pieces by the gang of thugs and the violence is never shied away from, or so it seems. As it happens, the director ended up heavily editing Murphy’s death because it was even worse to begin with. In the original version, you can see Murphy’s arm being severed by gunfire, more general screaming, lots of blood, a plethora of gunshots, and a complex tracking shot that show’s Murphy’s cranium exploding directly onto the camera as gang leader Clarence Boddicker shoots him in forehead.


TEAM AMERICA’S PUPPET SEX
Team America: World Police was brought to life by the mad geniuses behind South Park and features a cast of marionette puppets. How on earth could a movie starring marionette puppets feature anything too offensive? Well, there’s an infamous sex scene in Team America that pushes the envelope of credulity. Watching puppets get it on is weird enough, but Matt Stone and Trey Parker wanted to see what they could get away with, so they went all out crafting the scene. The directors submitted the film to the MPAA and came back with an NC-17 rating nine separate times before they managed to edit it down to an R rating. We’ll let your Urban Dictionary-fueled imagination run wild in regards to what was cut.

SCREAM’S BLOODY REALISM
Scream was a huge hit that launched a wave of self-aware horror films that were both humorous and gory. The MPAA didn’t like all that gore and ultimate slapped the movie with the dreaded NC-17 rating that no commercial filmmaker wants to see. In order to obtain an R-rating, only a few seconds of film actually had to be removed. In the beginning of the film, Drew Barrymore gets harassed on the phone as she discovers her boyfriend is in the backyard, strapped to a chair and bloody. In the original cut, we get a full camera shot of the boyfriend’s intestines falling out of his body. The censors said no to this, and the R-rated cut simply focuses on the character’s face instead while Barrymore screams and cries in the background.

Later in the film, cameraman Kenny runs afoul of the killer and gets his throat cut. The MPAA said the look on his face was too disturbing. Director Wes Craven changed the scene so the camera cuts away just as it happens, avoiding Kenny’s horrified visage. Craven also had to remove a portion of Rose McGowan’s elaborate garage door death in order to keep the censors happy and earn the R rating.

The deleted Team America scene is actually pretty funny. https://youtu.be/P38zPRV7kY0 It actually makes cinematic history, as I’ve never seen a puppet shit on another puppet’s face while getting eaten out before. That stuff is usually reserved for Brazilian and Czech girls.
