    You would never get away with this film in the U.S.:

    They don't plan to I believe they do not have an American premiere planned but will be one in Canada.

    In my opinion, this is pretty pathetic. Is it really too much to ask that parents take responsibility for keeping their children out of things that they should not be getting into? With a little effort, access to porn sites can be restricted by the computer administrator (which should be the parent). If they are not tech savvy, many programs and services that prevent access to certain types of websites are readily available.
    Normally I would not be bothered by this considering they do give an option to get the porn if you want. The problem arises in that by opting in you will register yourself as a person who wants porn. This will then someday be leaked or used against a person seeking public office, going for a job, or in some civil suit like divorce proceedings. The reverse should be done where customers are given an option to opt out of porn and to install the porn filters. In this case it would be far more effective and not result in people using potentially virus ridden proxy sites or programs to go get porn. Plus, what do they consider porn? Are boobies in a R rated movie considered porn? Do I have to say i want porn just to watch an uncut R rated movie in britain?

    get out of people's bedrooms. If you want to offer filters go do it. Do not force them onto people. This does not apply to child porn or potential snuff films or illegal acts being viewed like actual rape, though I am perfectly fine with people viewing simulated rape porn involving consenting actors.

    I never had a problem with the british until i lived with an american britophile. WTF happened to britain since the middle of lasrt century when they were releasing some very edgy and talented media? Now it is all boy bands and pop-eurotrash which makes taylor Swift look edgy and deep. They made many pre-90's musical revolutions, and now they are producing brittany spears level crapola. Oh, and their obsession with the royal family is just creepy as hell. Not that america is not getting close with the kenedys and the bushes, but god damn. Oh, and Sir Elton John? Shouldn't that be Dame? Yes there are manly gay guys, but if Elton could sprout fairy wings no one would be shocked. But they did do a good makover on James bond.

    yes, i kid because Britain is pretty much america's big brother. Probably the more responsible and anal retentive one.

    You should get yourself checked out then. It's quite pathological in your case, I fear.

    Why is it pathetic? The world would be a better place without rampant pornography. I read somewhere the average age of first exposure to porn nowadays is ELEVEN.

    In no way is that healthy, normal, or good.

    I actually doubt that the EU would allow this, as it is anti-competitive. That will of course piss of the Conservatives in the UK, which most likely is why they have proposed this beyond idiotic thing in the first place.
