Edited For Television

I noticed something the other day that I thought was interesting. There was a TV commercial for a movie. The character swore in the movie, but in the commercial, they took out the swear word so there was a half second of no sound while you could clearly see her lips moving to the curse word.

Do they think your kids aren’t smart enough to spot that and read the character’s lips like I did? Why not just use a different scene.

I noticed the same thing a couple months on a DVD. During the movie, the character swore in the dialogue, but on the DVD, they had the same scene in the trailer without the swear. Again, the character’s lips were clearly forming a curse, but, in that case, they dubbed the dialogue by putting a less offensive word over it. Again, nobody noticed that, right?
