Hangover 2 (or very bad trip 2 for the french version ) is rated 16 in switzerland I believe.
It's rated as 12+.

It's happened a few times to us that unacceptable films have been shown at school. Often it's the kids voting to see a particular film, and the teacher isn't aware of the content or suitability.

Usually we've been informed in advance. Then we've been able to inform the teacher of the age restriction and it's been withdrawn. Where there is no age restriction, but we're concerned about our kids seeing a particulary film, we inform the teacher that our child is not to watch it. There's never been a problem with them respecting our wishes.

We've also told our kids that if a film is being shown and they're unhappy with it, they should request to leave the classroom. This has happened a few times, and usually a few other kids will want to leave as well.

Why teachers don't check these things out beforehand is beyond me. But a few respectful parental complaints is all that's needed.
Are there kids that exist that would stand uo and say this film is not for my age group and decline to watch. Wow

Re: Hangover 2 at a primary school

I think ther is a different atitude in how films are rated in continental europe vs. USA/UK.

Here the regualtores are not that concerned when it comes to keep away kids and teens from films, that contain nudity or sexual content. The approach taken by the US comes close to a paranoia in my eyes, as it impossible to isolate kids from the world. (Besides this: What the hell is that bad about nudity? Am I the only one who often finds American productions ridiculous if there is nudity involved? (e.g. if in csi a body is lying on the autopsy table, the view on the corps genitalia is obscured by a seemingly extremely bright light source)
