This weekend saw more than just the Easter Bunny zipping onto screens with 'Hop.' It also marked the release of the Weinstein Company's grand family affair, an F-bomb-free version of 'The King's Speech.'

You remember this plan, right? After grabbing a figurative sword and setting out to battle the MPAA, Harvey Weinstein had decided that, gee, the F-word was keeping out masses of young ones and families who would be too scandalized to hear a king speak about unlawful carnal knowledge in the context of speech therapy. So, he whipped up a version where the F-sound is silenced, which earned the film a PG-13 rating.

That version hit screens over the weekend and what a surprise -- masses of little ones did not hit the theaters.
