I’m sure the Australian Classification Board sees a lot of things during their day-to-day duties, but scenes of strong drug use that don’t actually exist? That sounds like Fear and Loathing in Surry Hills.


According to the ACB’s report for the Australian comedy, Stone Bros. opens with a montage in which marijuana is shown being cut from the plant, mixed with tobacco and formed into joints. However, the film’s director, Richard J. Frankland, and its distributor, AFS, deny such a scene ever existed.


Thankfully the Federal Minister for Home Affairs, Brendan O’Connor, has requested a review and the Classification Review Board will meet on Saturday September 12 to consider applications.

Classified 16/07/2009, Stone Bros is rated MA15+ with ‘consumer advice’ about strong drug use.
