I was thinking about picking this up since I love all the Zucker Brothers movies especially these three. How is it? Couldn't find full specs.
When aired on Comedy Central, Frank's line "Nice beaver" was changed to "Nice one", ruining the joke.Paramount hasn't been in the habit of putting extended versions or deleted scenes onto their DVD's. They really haven't done "Special Editions" the way other studios have, like Fox for instance. Like it or hate it, defend it or not, Paramount's DVD's are pretty much along the lines of "here's the film in the best possible quality we can give you, with a couple of extras (often a trailer, every blue moon a commentary track, and - if available - alternate language tracks and/or subtitles) and that's it.
The 3 individually released Naked Gun series films were no different, and the new collection is nothing but those three discs tossed into a box set. THESE ARE *NOT* NEW VERSIONS OF THE DVDs!
Having said that, when we were in Best Buy last week I picked up the box set, put in into my wife's hands, and instructed her that I am to be given this as a gift for my birthday (August), or a Christmas present at the latest.
(Hey, it worked last year for the Lethal Weapon box set. It was under the tree Christmas morning!)
