This was a version created for a foreign market and it mistakenly ended up on Netflix. Much ado about nothing. I don't see what the point of "destroying" it is. Virtually every movie gets edited for different markets.

Yeah I started it a week or two ago after watching the original with my son. I finished it yesterday just to see what the deal is and it's the normal version with ooh La La. Still at that from time to time as joke the way Marty says it in the movie. Ooh La La, ooh La La. Great part, great movie.

Demolition Man foreign edit is insane if you've never seen it and were raised on the US version. Taco Bell is swapped for Pizza Hut. When I first saw it I thought for sure I was losing it.

Yeah they changed it in Europe because Taco Bell was less known there. Both were owned by Pepsi at the time. Maybe in some other countries they used KFC.

Totally insane......... But I guess its to be expected in todays aweful world!!





When you stop watching what they want you to watch you stop thinking what they want you to think.. Then you see a world that is nothing like they tell you it is.

There used to be Mormon video stores which would copy over offensive scenes on a VHS that were approved by an LDS committee. But Netflix already has a service called VividAngel that cuts movies to family friendly versions.
