You may have noticed something new on Vudu this week. We now offer a selection of Sony movies that have been adapted for a wider audience.
What does this mean? Simply stated, you can now watch the broadcast or airline versions of select films with some scenes of graphic violence, offensive language, sexual innuendo, and other adult content removed.
In more practical terms, it means no more rushing to cover a child’s eyes or ears (or even your own for that matter). And it means you can now hold your drinks and snacks (or each other), and simply enjoy the magic of family movie night without awkward surprises.
But if they took out the bad stuff, won’t it be…bad?
The Clean Versions are the same as those shown on network television or an airline. So don’t worry, you’re not really missing anything.
Plus, when you purchase the original theatrical version, you’ll find the Clean Version under Vudu Extras so you will have both versions of the movie at no additional cost. So have your cake and eat it, too.
Where do I find these magically fantastic movies?
You’ll find your Clean Version under the Vudu Extras tab of the movie title, clearly marked with a Clean Version tag along the bottom of the cover. Playing the movie without the tag will play the theatrical release, not the Clean Version.
There are currently 24 Sony titles that have a Clean Version available. To find out which titles are available, simply head to our Clean Version collection room or look for the Clean Version tag on select title covers.
Why the funicular is my movie now a Clean Version?
If you happen to own a theatrical version of a Sony title that now has a Clean Version, lucky you! You now also have a Clean Version at no additional cost. (Let the fools have their tar-tar sauce….)
The cover art simply denotes that there’s now a Clean Version available to you, but rest assured we haven’t tried to clean up your act.
Clean Versions, but why?
Some people like action movies, some people like drama. Some people even – gasp – like documentaries. (JK, we love documentaries.) There’s no right or wrong to it, it’s just personal preference. Some people don’t like cursing. It’s cool, we’re not sold on quinoa. We’re just all about connecting people to the movies they love (man).
