The hangover banned from Jordanian cinemas


I got really pissed off today as I parked outside Zara Center after an amazing lunch at Chilis (it’s actually not bad seeming it’s still new),  when the girl at the front desk at the movies told us that “The Hangover” was banned from Jordanian cinemas ! I’ve been holding out on buying the DVD (the ripped version of course) for a whole month now, even after hearing amazing reviews on it as being the most hilarious thing since Jim Carrey. The even bigger disappointment was the fact that she told us that barely 2 minutes were taken out of the movie ! Just 2 minutes of X-rated scenes and they ban the movie ! Give me a facking break :@ !

What I really don’t understand about Jordan is the fact that these movies (The Unborn, The Hangover etc.), are all previously marketed like crazy and then suddenly get chopped off the schedule ! You want to ban the movie don’t get us so overly excited about seeing it in the first place, then wait until one of your lazy ass administrators decides to chuck it out the window. Bastards ! If anyone knows the policy behind the nonsense that occurs here, please tell me.

My latest movie suggestion : I Love You, Man. I literally laughed for the entire length of the movie ! If you want an amazing laugh, go for this one.

  2. I seriosuly don’t understand why they ban movies in the first place, It’s not like people don’t know the shit that goes on, The internet is wide open for porn and everthing, What’s the use of banning, I was also planing to go watch the movie but good that i read this post before going.

  9. I recently heard that “My Bloody Valentine” (the new version) was allowed in the theaters in Jordan, and it had worse things in it than there was in Hangover that some would consider “offensive”. And yes, there are things in Hangover that would be considered offensive to some people in Jordan, but its not enough to ban a movie over.

    Also, I too enjoyed I Love You, Man.
