UK: The Uncut Version/Unrated Version was passed 12 uncut for:
This film was originally shown to the BBFC in an unfinished version. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive a '15' classification but that the requested '12A' certificate could be achieved by
making changes to dialogue.
In particular the BBFC suggested that the company remove the line, "my thingy smells like lamb chops" when a character talks about 'multiplying with sheep';
that they remove the line, "did you know he can put his penis in his mouth, the whole thing";
and the line "his poor rectum is absolutely pulverised, which is not usual for a sheep in this region".
When the finished version of the film was submitted these changes had been made and the film was classified '12A'.

Yoga Hosers is a 2016 USA comedy horror fantasy by Kevin Smith.
Starring Johnny Depp, Austin Butler and Stan Lee.
Cut in the US for an MPAA PG-13 rating. The BBFC passed the film 15 presumably in the same form as the cut PG-13 rated version
Set in the Great White North of Canada, YOGA HOSERS tells the story of Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie - two teenage besties from Winnipeg who spend their lives doing Yoga with their faces in their phones, 'Liking' or 'Not Liking' the real
world around them. But when these Sophomore girls are invited to a Senior party by the school hottie, the Colleens accidentally uncover an ancient evil, long buried beneath the Manitoba earth.
US: The film was downrated from R to PG-13 for crude humor, sexual references, comic violence, and brief drug material, seemingly after a small cut
The film was originally awarded an MPAA R rating for some sexual content in February 2016. Now the rating has been downgraded to PG-13.
The Director tweeted said that the MPAA had changed the rating from R to PG-13 on the eve of his scheduled appeal screening, which was subsequently cancelled.
Smith announced his intent to appeal last week and claimed the reasoning was for a cartoony drawing of testicles on a book cover. Nothing will have to be removed from the film, according to Smith. He did not quite say that no cuts had
been made, so presumably he had somehow obscured the offending book cover.

The BBFC commented:
This film was seen for advice, prior to formal submission. The company was informed that the likely classification was 15, but that their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a single use of the word 'motherfucker'. When the film was
submitted for formal classification, this word had been replaced and the film was classified 12A.
The BBFC commented in teh Annual Report covering 2014:
A single aggressive and directed use of motherfucker by an adult to a child, was removed.
Thanks to Pooch:
Towards the end of the film, the titular character does a TV interview, whilst being manipulated by the lady who runs the Smithsonian Institute. In the original film, after the interview spectacularly fails, she calls Spivet You motherfucker
, albeit at a distance, and from behind her, so you can't see her face/mouth!
In the UK version, motherfucker has been dubbed quite well by the same actress, or at least someone who sounds very similar, with the immortal You melon-farmer!
If it weren't for this, and two uses of the word fuck , which were all completely unnecessary and totally jarring, this would have been a PG-rated film, ideal for youngsters and families.
US: Rated PG for thematic elements, language and some reckless behavior.
Presumably the use of the word 'motherfucker' and two used of the word 'fuck' have been cut.
This is the most complete available version. See
version details on
