    I was just watching this the other day and then I watched the trailer for it. There is a seen that looks like a swat team comes in and Tom has a gun. Has anyone read the shooting script or know what happens in this scene?
    Thanks

    Yes, it's the crew from Abre Los Ojos, trying to prevent Cruise/Crowe from ruining the legacy of their fine little film.

    The confrontation with the cops was in Abre los Ojos, but for some reason was cut in Vanilla Sky.

    Angelo,
    I believe a extended version with lots of extras is in the works.

    Even though I love Cameron Crowe, I thought that VS was almost a complete mess. I thought that while it was very ambitious to try to remake such a challenging film, the complexity of the story and the thematic points were not suited to Crowe's filmmaking style. While there were a couple of nice points of the film, altogether I thought that it would have been done a little better by a director such as Aronofsky or maybe even Spike Jonze, but this type of script was not the best mate for Crowe's style.

    Could this thread be any more ambiguously titled?

    Anyone ever notice the similarities between VS and Total Recall?
