‘The Hangover Part II’ runs afoul of Utah’s liquor laws

It wasn’t patrons at Brewvies Cinema Pub in Salt Lake City that drew a $1,627 fine for "attire and conduct" violations.

It was the movie.

The offending film is "Hangover Part II," among the highest-grossing R-rated movies of all time.

On Thursday, Utah liquor-control commissioners approved the fine against Brewvies, which was $400 more than the penalty levied against a restaurant cited for serving alcohol to a minor.

"I’m struggling with the concept that an adult beverage may be served but an adult movie cannot be shown at the same time," said newly appointed commissioner Constance White.

Assistant Attorney General Sheila Page acknowledged that alcohol-free theaters also showed the film, which opened in Salt Lake County over the Memorial Day weekend. But those theaters do not fall under Utah’s liquor statutes, which forbid bars and clubs from showing images of certain sex acts and full frontal nudity.
