Why get an edited version. It's not the original and the swear words are there for a reason.

Amazon's description clearly says R, so as I mentioned in the other similar post, it seems this is just a reason to bring up the subject to give a platform for the close-minded ranters to spew about it. (look at how many were deleted by the moderator, if you doubt my assessment). Don't Panic! No one is going to withhold your f-bombs from you. Those of us who want the same good story with less filth just have to wait longer (or fire up our ClearPlays). There is a good article at http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2011-04-08/the-kings-speech-pg-13-harvey-weinstein-on-best-picture-re-release/# regarding why Weinstein says he did it.

Uh, that would be the entire point of the story - how the King got his voice. It didn't just happen by accident. Watch the original version that we saw in Europe. You're delicate sensibilities shouldn't be too, offended. This would be akin to watching a great sporting event and seeing players celebrating a great score afterward in the end zone, but the actual video of the play itself was lost in transmission - or cut by the network.

My 7 year old daughter wants to see the "best movie of last year" so there is some purpose to the edited version. Anyone know where I can get it?

Swearing ruins the enjoyment of a movie for me and my wife. If I can ever find the PG-13 version maybe my wife will watch this excellent movie with me. I rented the R version and turned down the sound in the worst swearing scene, but there are other scenes peppered with swearing too, so beware. Unlike most movie swearing, here it at least has a point. But I disagree that the swearing in this movie was entirely necessary, at least to the heavy extent that it was used.

I don't understand why people that don't want to listen to swearing are called "closed-minded-ranters who want to spew". I respect your right to listen to and watch what you want without criticism and name calling. I would like the same respect. Can you not see it as just differences in people and respect those differences, or do you have the philosophy, "my way is the right way and the only way". Your post shows more about you, than the people you are speaking of.

And I would like to show it in speech class to my students. There is obviously a purpose for the edited version.

I would have bought this if they sold the edited version. That is what I loved about the Avatar Special Edition. They have a Family Edition option in the language section that edits out the bad words. Everyone should follow this example. Anyone that doesn't understand why we would want an edited version is very narrow minded indeed. We don't need to hear that much swearing to understand that he is angry and swearing. I for one would not want one of my kids to use that language as children copy what they hear. And by the way, this movie would have brought in soo much more money had they origianally released it as PG 13. There is a benefit for editing horrible language. I know the rerelease in PG 13 wasn't very successful, but everybody had already seen it and it was very poorly marketed so a lot of people didn't know it was out.
