New Line Removes Profanity To Get FAB Award

FAB thanks the people at New Line Cinema for removing a few words of profanity from the fine family film, "Secondhand Lions", in order to meet the criteria for FAB's Award of Excellence. The film stars Academy Award winners Michael Caine and Robert Duvall as two crusty uncles to Oscar-nominee Haley Joel Osment. ("The Sixth Sense"). Osment plays an introverted boy who reluctantly finds himself spending the summer with the uncles on their Texas ranch. Overtime, he is won over by them and enthralled with their rememberances of their youthful exploits. The film is MPAA rated PG for thematic elements and action violence. It opens in theaters on September 26.
