80's and 90's Kids Films Ruder than you remembered

Just went to see Mrs Doubtfire at the cinema.

Was it really that rude when it was originally released?

I'm not that old, as would have been a teenager when it originally came out and we saw it at the cinema. I don't recall...

A joke about Pakistanis in corner shops
Mrs Doubtfire flipping off Pierce Brosnan
Various casual swearing
A scene where Mrs Doubtfire is doing various phrases for sex acts

Was this all in the original version?? I note that the film is now a 12A which didn't exist at the time.

I also presume that when they show it on a Saturday afternoon, they must cut all these things out.

Likewise The Goonies. I remember it as a kids film, when I saw it at the cinema recently, all they did was swear.

I guess I was too young for the Goonies at the cinema, so would only have seen a badly cut version (I know this is the case).

Am I simply remembering them wrong?

Or do they cut these things out to get a PG rating?

I'm guessing a lot of it goes over your head as a kid.

I do remember a bit of swearing in Temple of Doom and my nan not being impressed

I also remember his swearing in a video of Temple of Doom (from the video shop) and then not hearing it again until I bought the DVD. I remember it as we thought it was hilarious.

Presumably they thought a bit of swearing wasn't a massive issue in the 80's?

I guess "mild swearing" was okay.
It was just one S word when he was on the rope bridge, iirc

Mrs Doubtfire was rated a 12 and you were definitely remembering it wrong. I haven't seen it in donkeys years, probably since it hit VHS and all those things you list I remember.

Did we just all watch cut versions on tv until the dvd revolution?

The Goonies is the most obvious example, as I loved the movie but watched TV cuts my whole life (until the DVD).

The TV cut started with the car chase (missed out the hanging in the cell, the escape), there was naturally no swearing and the subtitles from the Spanish translation scene were not printed on screen.

Still seems to happen, big fan of the simpsons and own the DVDs (or ten seasons of them), they certainly do a number of cuts most notably they don't use the word ****** on C4, which they do sometimes say in the actual episodes.
