United Kingdom Censorship[]

BBC One[]

  • The scene that shows Serlenna's transformation scene was shortened (This happens every time a major celebrity like Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, or Bill Cosby get called out for sexual harassment shortly before reruns of this film.)
  • The scene that shows the smoking human-like alien man is sometimes cut (mainly during daytime reruns).
  • The scene where Agent J converses with the beatboxing alien man (whilst literally using beatbox) (is often cut due to prejudicing parents often holding a grudge against their kids' love for hip hop/rap music.)
  • The scene where Agent J scolds Frank the Pug for singing "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor was cut (due to verbal pet abuse).
  • The scene that shows the furry little bug-like creatures go into the porno theatre was cut. (This was done in order to keep its "PG" rating.)
  • The scene that shows Agent J's reaction to the porno theatre was cut. (This was done in order to keep its "PG" rating.)
