At the Utah-based Megaplex Theatres chain, the movie’s titles are sanitized for your protection.
Opening on Friday is "Kick-Ass 2," the second installment in the series based on a comic book about real-life people donning superhero costumes to fight crime in New York.
But on Megaplex’s website, it’s not called "Kick-Ass 2," but "Kick A 2."
Megaplex’s truncation of the title drew derision on Twitter from The Cricket’s colleague at Salt Lake City Weekly, Scott Renshaw: "If you really cared about offensiveness, @megaplextheatre, you’d worry less about title of KICK-ASS 2 and more about what’s in it."
