    I want to pick this film up, however I can't find the unrated version anymore in stores and I don't feel like waiting a week getting it on ebay.

    What I need to know is, what are the specific differences between the two? Am I fine just going with the R rated version, how much is cut from it as compared to the unrated version?

    Thanks.

    I'm not completely sure about what scene is longer, but I'm sure that seconds were added to the sex scenes and not to mention more gore. I'd get the unrated version, but I'm a sick bastard. [​IMG]

    The only addition to the Unrated cut were thirty seconds or so to the sex scene. Ironically, the line...
    "I want you to eat her asshole." (or something like that)
    is still edited out of the Unrated cut, despite that specific line being the BIGGEST reason the flick got an NC-17 to begin with. The line still exists somewhat (the word "hole" is deleted from the phrase) in the Unrated cut, but it's just not as demented. [​IMG]

    However, the R2 contains that actual line (along with the thirty seconds of deleted footage).

    The Canadian edition doesn't state which version it is, but it is the unrated version. I can't remember if it contains the "***hole" line though, I will have to check.

    Finally it's announced! I can't believe I held out this long, but sounds like it's been worth it!

    I'm sure it will be the uncut version plus the deleted scenes from the R2 edition.

    There are more deleted scenes than just those that showed up in R2, so hopefully we see some additional ones.

    And I just got the Unrated on eBay...oh well, I'm happy to upgrade. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.

    June 21st. Yeah, I'll swing by and pick it up. I think I have to return some videos on that day anyway.

    I know it's been over a decade, but I'd just like to clarify that the "bend over so that Sabrina can see your asshole" line is intact in the Uncut version, as well as the added sex footage.
