Yes, but obviously rampant racism is fine. "Immoral obscene overt sexuality" (a comedy movie, a joke, not a big deal idiots) is bad, but in the Ukraine, racism clearly is fine. Yeah, another socially backwards country.

I've been to the Ukraine quite a few times and yes, they are staggeringly racist. It's not even hidden or subtle.

They see a (very rare in Ukraine) black person in the street and they start laughing, pointing and making monkey noises. And the blacks have it pretty good compared to the Jews and gypsies. I am not kidding.

Wonderful news for sellers of Pirate DVD's in that country.

Banning any movie will only create extra interest in it, and will inevitably lead to more people seeing the movie than would otherwise have.

Smart move, Ukrainian Government.

A part of me says "fantastic!"

I am so sick of having that guy forced into my life every day! That has to be the most intense marketing campaign for any film ever created!

I am sick to death of seeing his stupid pouting face every time I read a paper or turn on the TV or go on Youtube or walk through town...

There is such a thing as too much publicity, and for this reason alone I hope the film fails miserably.
I probably would have seen it if I hadn't been assaulted by marketing for it.
