6 Bizarrely Specific Movie Moments UK Censors Banned

5. UK Censors Feared Kids Would Want To Electrocute Hulk Hogan Too - Mr. Nanny

If you've never heard of Mr. Nanny, count yourself lucky. It's one of Hulk Hogan's attempts at cracking Hollywood, and that should tell you everything you need to know.

Although it's a fairly tame comedy with violence on a similar scale to Home Alone, the BBFC wouldn't allow this one to reach UK cinemas unless it lost a shower scene.

No, there wasn't any Hulkster nudity on display (thank god). The offending sequence involved the movie's two bratty kids throwing a 'lightning machine' into the shower during Hogan's ablutions, giving him a nasty electric shock.

The UK censors feared kids could imitate this prank at home with more fatal consequences. Y'know, because everyone owned a 'lightning machine' in their youth.

It would almost be possible to see where the BBFC was coming from had the kids not set their previous babysitter's hair on fire or assaulted Hulkster with a number of more plausible traps in scenes which required no cuts whatsoever.
