    Thought I'd get the "official" thread started.

    This one will have NEW commentary and a BRANCHING version with the TV edits(deleted scenes).

    I'm all over this, as I've always wanted a version with the deleted scenes.
    The TV edits had lot more scenes of the two kids(adult couple)

    We can only hope true special editions of the Naked Gun movies are next with all the deleted scenes seen on tv.

    really??
    Noone has posted since Feb 25th 2005 and it's basically people talking about possible paramount SE's

    I just wanted a seperate thread about ONE SE, and how great it would be, and giving the release date.

    Maybe someone can confirm this for me....

    The only TV scene I vaguely remember is
    where a guy is walking in the airplane and
    notices his buddy, Jack, coming in the other
    direction.

    He yells, "HI JACK" and security comes and
    takes him away (the joke being on hijaack).

    Not sure if that was something I thought I
    saw or not. Not sure if it was from Airplane
    or Airplane II, either.

    Ronald,

    The Hi Jack! joke is ALSO in Airplane II(TV edit I think)

    # Some versions have subtitles on a part where the Jive Dudes are talking.

    # The TBS television version adds more scenes with the two kids acting like adults.(3-4 scenes)

    # On the broadcast television version, there is an extra joke when the plane is landing. Elaine exclaims, "Look out, Ted! The mountains! The mountains!" Ted replies, "Elaine, we're over Iowa." Elaine then says, "Look out, Ted! The Corn! The Corn!"

    # Some broadcast versions have an additional scene at the airport in which a couple recognizes someone they know. "Hi, Jack!" they yell to him, causing airport security personnel to grab him and haul him away.

    # In another scene added to the broadcast version, the flight crew looks first to the left and then to the right as the plane's jet engines come to life, accompanied by the sound of an old propeller engine sputtering into action.

    # In the network TV version, the abortion exchange between the man and woman on the PA system is removed.

    # Some video versions feature different songs on the soundtrack compared to the original release, probably due to licensing problems.

    # In recent UK 'Sky Movies' broadcasts the punchline to the cocaine joke which had her snorting some white powder was cut. Also cut was the line 'Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue'.

    # In the TV version shown on UPN, Chuck Connors appears briefly as "The Sarge", the same character he plays in Airplane II

    # In a TV version, there is a scene showing Kramer and McCroskey having an argument at a water dispenser.

    # UK DVD release is rated '15' because of the director's commentary. The movie itself is still rated 'PG'.

    # In the TV version, an alternate version of the scene with the woman's breasts wiggling is shown featuring a woman in a tight red and yellow striped t-shirt and drum sound effects accompanying her moving breasts. Whistling is also heard.

    How early does Paramount usually send out copies to reviewers? I'm eager to read a review of the new version.

    I try not to sell older editions before reading a review or two because it's a roll of the dice lately whether a new edition is worth the upgrade or not.

    Normally, 12 - 14 days before street date, with review blackouts in effect until 11 days before street. I'm rarely able to post a review 11 days before street, since I frequently receive several titles in a given week. They can't all be done in a few days.

    So, the absolute earliest you'll see a review of this title here at HTF is December 2 (the street date was pushed to 12/13). I'm afraid you'll have to wait awhile.

    Retailers who break street date may make discs available to the public around the same time as reviewers get their screeners. People who get discs in this way aren't bound by review blackouts. Sometimes, you'll see comments posted by members a few days before a review is available.

    I'll probably pick up this edition when it comes out eventually. Not as funny today as when you first saw it but I'm looking forward to the commentary and the extra scenes.
