    I've seen this movie tons of times.. just popped it in.. guess i never noticed before, but it says this movie has been edited for content at the beginning of the movie..

    anyone know why?

    In the theatrical run, Tobey Maguire's character said something about Alan Ladd's death as a suicide. Ladd's estate objected and forced Paramount to remove the reference in the DVD, hence the "edited for content" disclaimer.

    EDIT:

    Oops, looks like Damien beat me to the punch. [​IMG]
