The classification matrix was the same, apart from the language, which went from ‘Moderate impact’ to ‘Mild impact’.

The M-rated version describes the language as a bleeped-out use of the words ‘fuck’ and ‘bloody’.

In the PG version the words are also visually-blurred, indicating modifications to the subtitles.
