Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Extended Version
Release: Mar 12, 2008 - Author: LJSilver - Translator: enemy - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the Extended Version and the theatrical release (rated R). Extended Version is represented by the German rental DVD (Highlight), theatrical version was provided by the US-DVD (Columbia). Extended Version includes some scenes which had been removed for the theatrical release. There are much more jokes and some little story extensions which are almost nothing worth mentioning. Overall this version is clearly the better one because it's funnier and more relaxed than the dull action orgy which the theatrical release presented.

Extended Version and Theatrical Release are abbreviated with EV and TR in the following report.

Extended Version is about 230 seconds longer than the theatrical cut!

All quotes from the dialogue are taken from the German cut report and are translated back into English thus they may differ from the original dialogue. - the translator

Terri comes up and says that she's reported about Jill's cases prior to the suspension. Jill shows she's not a fan, makes some insulting remarks and introduces her partner Peyton.



Now the parts follow which have been edited differently. Those parts are also included in the TR but the EV is a little longer here and there:


Terri babbles more about the Emmy she wants to win. After she asks for a comment by the police a slightly insane padre joins them in the EV and preaches of the end of the world. The three of them hear a moan from somewhere but the padre denies that there was anything. Of course Jill and Peyton aren't satisfied by that. In the TR they hear the moan without the padre joining them. Then they start looking for the source of the moan. The TR has a lot of material not included in the EV as well.
