Utah cinema-goers out of luck. Netflix is OK with that.

Someone in Utah certainly has their undies in a bundle. The movie is already rated R, but I'm sure they don't want to corrupt anyone by perhaps letting an adult make their own judgement call regarding a romantic film.

EDIT Jan. 11: Heath Ledger responds with “Personally, I don’t think the movie is [controversial] but I think maybe the Mormons in Utah do. I think it’s hilarious and very immature of a society...” It was also mentioned in another article that the same cinema apparently had no moral problems with showing Hostel.

There are a lot of strange people in Utah. My wife's brother and his wife live outside SLC, so I hear about a lot of the nutty things that go on there. It can be either discouraging or downright entertaining, depending on one's mood. Sometimes you just have to shake your head in amazement, like with the controversy over Brokeback Mountain.

It has its own brand of weirdness, doesn't it?
