The UK cinema release was cut to obtain a BBFC 15 certificate. Some crude sexual dialogue was cut and a use of 'cunt' was overdubbed with 'shit'. The DVD release still has these edits but the Blu-ray release waived these cuts with an 18 certificate. See more »
Seeing the mixed response this movie got here in the US definitely had me lowering my expectations. I finished the show in two weeks and is now one of my favorite TV comedies ever, so I was seeing this film either way. As it stands, this definitely does the series justice. Oh, it definitely wasn't anything out of the ordinary or unpredictable, but just like the show, it's able to still be completely hilarious and really touching when it comes down to it. The four characters have deeply resonated with me, and the movie just further expands their arcs in mostly successful ways. Even though the movie may not have the freshness the series has many times, it works because it still has the same humor, and the characters are definitely true to themselves. It's a riot!
