In the UK version when David Brand confronts Ian Cox about selling the company behind his family's back he is ordered off the premises whilst two security guards stand behind him. David then says something derogatory about Cox needing two "bouncers" but just as he gets to the word 'bouncers' there is a cut away from David talking to a different shot and the word 'bouncers' is said in a different voice. This indicates that the word 'bouncers' has been dubbed over a suggested expletive in order for the film to have a family friendly PG rating in the UK. It is unknown if the same cut appears in the US release of the film. See more »

Absolutely Underrated! Pre-paid bad publicity?(((
9 August 2016 | by (LA, California) – See all my reviews

This is a light-hearted comedy! Unlike Star Treks and the likes or cheesy teens comedies, easy to sit through. Good not only for teens, though a bit offensive for cats. Acting and casting are not for disappointments! I rate it 9 lives +1 for its longer life and against dog lovers' low ratings discriminating, habitually, against little cats on the big screen! After all, it is thought-provocative, with a cat character brought to life by a compelling and intelligent cat star. Young actress Malina Weissman as Tom's daughter Rebecca is sweet and innocent childlike. The movie is absolutely Underrated! Pre-paid bad publicity?((((((
