Showing 'Hangover II' is worse than giving booze to underage customers

Utah has some ... unique liquor laws, and this story from the Salt Lake Tribune includes another good example. A movie theater there was slapped with a $1,627 fine because it showed "Hangover II" and served alcohol to audience members at the same time.

The theater has permission to serve alcohol, but Utah law forbids bars from showing depictions "of certain sex acts and full frontal nudity." Which the Hangover sequel definitely has. (In fact, the Trib has a very nice roundup of the naughty parts.)

The kicker? The theater's fine was about $400 more than what you'd get if you served alcohol to a minor, the Trib says.
