    Heard somewhere that this orginally was intended for an R rating and was toned down after Sept. 11. Wondering what was in store for this little gem, and whether the DVD is going to have the original intended cut of the film or not.
    Thanks.

    It was given the PG-13 rating May 2001, so it wasn't toned down and no changes were made due to September 11 in terms of violent content, etc. In fact, I'm not even sure if ANY changes were made from the cut to be released on September 21, since the stuff that really would be offensive was crucial to the plot. Definitely no R rating though.

    Matthew, which deleted scenes were shown in the trailer? I've read the book, and aside from the short epilogue, I don't think there's much more they could have added to the ending of the movie.

    I saw Big Trouble before September 11. The version that was released this year is exactly the same.

    Anyone know if Big Trouble is still slated for October 8th.

    Missed this one in the theaters and my wife loves Dave Barry stories. He is a great humorist.
