A classification of 'M Contains offensive language and sexual references' was issued today by Chief Censor Bill Hastings for the feature film Land of the Lost.
“Following several complaints from members of the public about its original PG rating, I decided to call Land of the Lost in for classification by my office” said Mr Hastings.
New Zealand automatically adopts G, PG and M ratings from Australia and issues a matching New Zealand label. "This system is not perfect," said Mr Hastings, "but there is an inbuilt safety valve – if members of the public are concerned about a film's rating they can ask me to review it."
“School holidays are coming up and it is important that parents have accurate information about the films they let their children see" said Mr Hastings. "An 'M' rating means that Land of the Lost contains some material more suitable for mature audiences."
