I just watched a Netflix movie via streaming the internet. The movie was titled, "Johnny B Good", a 1988 comedy starring Anthony Michael Hall, Robert Downey Jr., and Paul Gleason...and it was "CENSORED".
I could not believe it! I even dug out my dvd copy of the same movie, "Johnny B Good", a movie that I bought at store years ago just to see if in fact I was correct. And, I was scenes were completely omitted. I contact Netflix and asked them about this, and their Representative was understanding to my concern, but offered no help or answers to why Netflix is furnishing censored and edited movies on their site, but not informing their customers of their actions.
If I wanted to watch censored movies, or television for that matter, I would watch regular and FREE T.V....Oh! wait Crackle is free and they show unedited and uncut movies.
This is not the first movie I have run across that expected to be censored/edited, but this was the first one that I had my own dvd copy a movie to compare it too. I it is bad enough that they show edited/censored movies and charge for it, but to do so and try to pawn them off as unedited is just wrong.
