Movie Mix Up

by Red Wolf

United Kingdom: It wouldn't be the first time a movie mix up has made it into the Prattle, this time the heroes of our tale are Alan and Anne Leigh-Browne, from Wellington, Somerset.

A devout Baptist couple who bought a Doris Day DVD from a supermarket were shocked to find a sex film instead.

This kind of thing happens on occasion, but surely the credits would give the game away and let you know you have the wrong movie. Well, they did, but the Leigh-Brownes are nothing if not determined to get their money's worth. All £2.99 worth of bargain bin DVD.

Some topless young women appeared and started talking in Italian... it's not what you expect from a Doris Day film, Mr Leigh-Browne said.

But not even this opener was enough to tear the couple from the screen.

My wife and I were very shocked but we watched it until the end because we couldn't believe what we were seeing.

The film became progressively more graphic, there was no plot to it, it was just sex.

They were shocked and appalled and yet they watched the entire thing. Nobody forced them to watch it. It was an obvious error, but they still watched on. Morons.

But they did see fit to complain and have the title removed from the store. So no pr0n for you.

Alan and his wife Anne, 60, a retired teacher, complained to Safeway the next day and all copies of The Pyjama Game were removed from the store.
