First off they showed an EDITED version of the movie on vets day, at least that's what i read in the paper.

Finally an FCC bashing thread...

The FCC is WAY too touchy on things showing up on tv. They yell at Radio disk jockies voicing their opinions, they put those explicit lyrics labels on all CD's. They bleep out words all over the place, they cut and edit Saving Private Ryan, and most recently, they get on ABC's case for the monday night football opening skit. The FCC needs to not exist, but to back way off.

This proves my theory that the FCC is made up of a whole bunch of Extremely religious, soccer moms.

HEY FCC, SCREW YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

First off what does FCC stand for? .. And second I reckon playing Saving Private Ryan on any Vet day would be a good thing. Lest we forget ah!!

...well ok whatever, thanks, but what the hell have they got to do with the Veterans?? (am I wrong in saying that?) Over here NO-ONE gets in the way of the Vets days!! The whole Government and its departments actually support and join in!

We actually do as well...it's just that Saving Private Ryan is seen as too graphic or violent to some.

so people can choose to watch it or not too watch it - it's not a big problem about that, but im regard to vets...some would view it as too much, but others would think of it as a commemmorative action. it's just a subjective question

My feeling is that SPR is the greatest movie ever made (disagree with me in the movie forum if u want)..it shows the true horrors of war. To show it edited is a sin.

i agreeeee. i watched that movie about 6 dozen times and im still not tire of it. best movie of all times since it features the almighty US.

Well, here in N.Z we have something similar to Veterans Day, but called Anzac Day. (Anzac stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corps) And last year they showed Saving Private Ryan on that day. But heres the thing: I dont know any Veterans who even watched it So why worry about them? They have their memories, so why do they need reminding with a silly movie? (actually i think its a great movie :) And for those of us who arent Veterans, well, if you dont like whats on the box, then switch it off!!
