* ''Film/BlazingSaddles'': Written by MelBrooks and RichardPryor, the ''kings'' of NWordPrivileges. The whole point of the film was to take every trope of the standard American Western, a dozen more from Hollywood films in general, and [[DeconstructiveParody nuke them all]], ''particularly'' the racist parts. It's rated as one of the top comedy movies of all time, but Brooks fully admits it would never get made today because of the N-bombs, gay jokes, and Jews cast as Native Americans.

* ''Film/RealityBites'': As [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/team-nchick/nostalgia-chick/36745-reality-bites explained]] by WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick, the main characters complaining about their middle-class suburbanite lives comes off as [[{{Wangst}} downright laughable]] to anyone living through the post-2008 Great Recession.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheChinaSyndrome'': Jane Fonda plays a puff-piece reporter who, while doing a puff piece on a nearby nuclear plant, witnesses a near-meltdown of the plant. At a cocktail party soon after the events, she asks the news director to let her do more hard news stories. The director condescendingly replies that she was hired for her looks and her body and not any reporting ability. Nowadays, that would probably get the director fired and justify a huge lawsuit.

* In the 1930s film adaptation of ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' [[HideYourLesbians removes]] the lesbian themes of the story. In its place we have a huge public scandal because a little girl (supposedly) caught Martha cheating with Karen's fiance. They even get sent to court for it. The accusations of infidelity and pre-marital sex were more serious in TheThirties but in modern times, or even the 60s (where the TruerToTheText adaptation was made), it would be considered a smaller, more personal issue.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/IAmAFugitiveFromAChainGang'': Helen's line "I'm free, white and twenty-one." was a common expression during the nineteen twenties, thirties and much later when racism was not only socially acceptable but the law in many parts of the country. The use of this line lasted into the sixties and even seventies.

** In Latin American culture family is very important, so to a Latin American audience Flor would be right to distance herself and her daughter from Deborah, who would be considered a toxic influence, for neglecting her family and driving a wedge between Flor and Cristina

* In America, many people were surprised that the [[Film/FiftyShadesOfGrey the film adaptation]] of ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' didn't get an NC-17 rating right out of the gate given the source material's notorious sexual content. Other countries did give it their maximum ratings, while some either heavily edited the sexual material or [[BannedInChina banned the film outright]]. There was, however, one conspicuous exception: UsefulNotes/{{France}}, where it sailed through with a ''12'' certificate, roughly equivalent to a PG or a PG-13. Moreover, as [[Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver John Oliver]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9t3TzSnwCn4 noted]], there was controversy among the Ministry of Culture's censor board over this rating... namely, that some thought it was ''too high'', and that it should've been given the all-ages U certificate. Apparently, the Ministry of Culture thought that the film's sex scenes were tame and not particularly shocking compared to the content of France's own erotic films.
