    I have the originally-released American Pie ws unrated collector's edition. Now out on the shelves of course is what I guess they call the Ultimate edition, in slick new packaging. I think it comes with free tickets to AP2, which of course are worthless now. I haven't been able to do a side-by-side comparison, but it seems that other than some AP2-related stuff and the new packaging, the actual content (special features) is the same as what I already have. Is this true? Is there anything additional to the Ultimate edition, other than the new packaging (which I admit, I'm a sucker for slick packaging), that I don't already have?

    There is really no good reason to get the Ultimate Edition unless you want the DTS track - which is supposed to be slightly better than the DD. The extras and everything else aren't anything more special that the initial DVD release, in my opinion.

    Some deleted scenes (presented in rough, grainy form), and a photo montage with comments from the directors.
    Not worth the trouble of selling the one you already have, unless you really want a P&S version sitting around gathering dust.

    Unless I want a P&S version sitting around? Where would it come from? The one I already have is 1.85:1 anamorphic, isn't the Ultimate also wide screen?

    Justin, the Ultimate Edition contains BOTH the widescreen and pan-and-scan versions of the movie (on separate discs, I think). The original release is widescreen only.
