Easily one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I was quite surprised that this film did fare too well at the box office when it was released over the Summer. I though for sure that word of mouth would make it into a bona fide hit.

I'm really looking forward to this on DVD. :)

A great collection of extras makes this a buy for me. Hilarious movie too (and i hated "Dude, where's my car?". I loved Weedy, even if that sequence did through off the pace of the whole movie. Would have been nice to have NPH in the extras too... oh well, not gonna deter me!

I would not worry to much Ben, I bet we will see NPH somewhere on there, afterall, there is a feature named after his scene. :) A great movie, I only wish it was coming out earlier.

Hi, does anyone know what's happening with this title in Canada? Canadian retailers only seem to be listening one version and I can't find any details on whether it's the Extreme Unrated version or the Rated version. Could the Extreme Unrated only be available in the US? :confused: Thanks :)

I checked a number of Canadian-based DVD retailers (Best Buy Canada, Future Shop, ABSound & DVDSoon) and the only version that appears to be available is the 'R' edition. The 'Extreme Unrated' edition may be reserved for U.S. consumers.

Rented it last night; one of the more enjoyable comedies I've seen in a while. I'm picking up the unrated edition after work today. The Wal-Mart stores in central OH have both editions for $14.87 each.

I haven't seen this movie, but I've heard it's hilarious. I'm from Canada, so it looks as though the "Unrated" version won't be making its way around here. Worst case scenario, I'll try to snag one through Ebay.

Pretty funny menu videos. Not many DVDs where you will actually sit through all of the video loops on the menus!

The Canadian version is the Extreme Unrated Version. Just look at the back of the case and it says Extreme Unrated version of the film in the feature list.

Very funny menus. I actually HATE menus and would have them stripped off every title if I had my druthers. But that's the funniest thing I've seen since the surprise phone-ring in The Ring menus.

The unrated version also runs 2 minutes longer per IMDB.

Anyone know what was added to the film itself?

There were some other scenes but I don't remember the other ones as they were smaller, I haven't watched that DVD in a few months, I have watched it so many times in January. I will try to post the rest when I decide to watch it again. I hope this helps you some Frank.

Have you seen the unrated version, Jesse? I've only seen the unrated version, and Freakshow's wife's breasts were shown in the unrated version.

Don,

Thanks for the info on the Unrated version.

Very few DVD review sites can comment on small changes.

On another note, I wish studios would stop with these dual releases.

It's getting confusing as hell to keep track of all these versions.

Either make the primary DVD release Unrated, or keep it 'R' with the other stuff as deleted scenes.
