Bridget Jones's Diary

The Region 4 release, like the Region 2 version has seen the expletive "c*nt" word uttered by the character Julian at 59:02 replaced with the word "cow". Apparently this was so the film didn't receive an 18+ classification in Britain. From the information that we can gather, the Region 1 release retains the original audio. Interestingly, if the commentary track is selected, the original audio can be quite clearly heard, and the director also says the word herself while mentioning why this scene was altered.
