Remember that scene in Terminator 2 where Sarah Connor picks the lock in the mental asylum with paper clips? It was actually for real. Turns out Linda Hamilton was actually a skilled lock picker. Who knew?

The scene made it into the UK cinematic cut of T2, but the BBFC was having none of it when it came to the movie's home video release.

Why? Over concerns that criminals might replay the sequence in the comfort of their own home and use it as an instructional video about the art of breaking and entering.

The fact the 2006 movie Breaking and Entering made it into cinemas on these shores at all is nothing short of a miracle.
