One for the stupid idea's
How the hell do they expect to make this work? As it is, classification only works (up to a point) when age can be physically verified (cinema's, rental stores... the local supermarket on DVD release day). After that the current (flawed) system goes to pot... Parents LET their 'kids' watch films that are 'unsuitable' for their age. I dare say that most of the time it is the parents buying the films for the kids too. Do the BBFC really think most parents really give a flying fig if their 16 year old son is watching a 18 cert film?
Also, whats stopping little Johny Smith (14) from 'borrowing' his dads credit card and renting/purchasing a downloadable movie with an 18 Cert?
MORE emphasis (than what is already in place) should be placed upon the actual content of a film... It should then be up to the parents to make an informed decision about whether they think a film is suitable for their 'child' or not... even then, that would never be fool proof.
Seems like the BBFC are just trying to justify their worthless existance really as EVERYBODY knows that film classifications DON'T WORK. Come the release of Rambo 4 (or whatever number it is now!) every schoolboy in the country will be watching it after borrowing the DVD from their elder brother or something.
Paris because she knows all about films with content not suitable for children!
